Otherwise, the pirate theme makes no sense.



They said two maps, one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday. So two days.

First map part showed up on Woot offer.

At least I haven't found any others yet.

Ultra T or full Ultra? P or non-P?

Turns out I have three full Ultras, not two, and all are the earlier non-P models.

I'm thinking about getting one. I'm worried that I'll get sucked into Apple fanboy, err fangirl, hell. Then I'll have to buy an ipad, and a pretty pirate hat, and Apple tv, and it will rule over me.

I don't have the Apple tv. I got a Roku instead.

I'm thinking about upgrading because I am eligible, and I didn't get sucked into the 4S, or the ipad 3. Decisions.

I'm just hanging out, really.

I have a Roku too, love it. I tend to want things to match, have a theme. So if I get an iphone and love it, I'll feel the need to get other Apple stuff.

Yeah, fell down that rabbit hole pretty easily myself, except the TV part never grabbed me. Too limited. I knew I was in for the long haul when my PC for work finally died and I decided to dual boot a Mini instead of buying a new PC.

I am sure half of you now probably think I'm a total Apple snob. No, I just like it. I'm not rabid enough to tell people they need one or the other. Tools for the job, as it were.

I think mostly right now I'm trying to convince myself lil clunky (the 4) is still good enough. That and I'm afraid of losing my unlimited data plan.

I'm just hanging out, really.

The rumor is that Samsung will announce the S4 in February/March. Sammy is now denying that. In any case, the gap between Samsung announcement and availability, especially here in the States, is pretty wide. I believe it was four months between announcement of the S3 and availability by USA carriers.

Just found another Ultra.
Versions 6.03, 6.04 and 7.03.
Not T or P, just a plain Ultra.

The woot-off will be exactly two days. From the newsletter:

On Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Wednesday, Sept. 19, we'll run a Woot-Off with a very special difference. Clues sprinkled throughout the Woot-Off will lead you to a hidden cache of lost pirate loot. Or something.

TT gave an excellent hint. Go to the Woot blog. Then just look for TREASURE. I think Ctrl-F will work there. You might have to move to older pages.

It's a fun idea, but now having done it, it seems a little tedious only to realize that I still need a lot of the map, and I'm not following the woot-off tonight. Will just have to check back around 10 pm central or something and see if anyone posted a link :P

I've got a Cuisinart one I got on woot eons ago for $30 that I wouldn't trade in for anything. This thing makes great ice cream in about 15 minutes. The Kitchenaid mixers are great, but my experience with their attachments (although limited to the slicer attachment) have left me less than impressed. I would say if you are going for any attachments, the pasta ones are about the only ones worth it, but they it will basically run you the cost of the mixer itself to get all of them (rollers and extruders). I've looked into getting the grinder, just not sure if it is durable enough.

If I can get the ice cream maker free, sweet. I don't like ice cream, but the kids do. The only problem I'm running into is hte thing came with a $50 rebate, which requires the original UPC. they will not budge on this (fraud and all), so I gotta see if the other rebate people can be made to see reason. Something tells me the answer will be no and I'll have to choose between the two. Seeing as how I'm not a fan of Ice Cream the cash will win out.

I had the pasta attachments. The roller worked great until my husband accidentally let a dish towel get rolled up in it. We sold the cutter attachments sans roller on ebay for close to what we paid for the set.
