Do you have room for more monkeys? I see they're up.

Edit: on regular and on kids'. I see they made sure to note that d/t the shopping cart you can get all 3 for one shipping charge.

There's always room for new monkeys! However, those three are all old ones that have been around since January (at least). They were at CES then, and have been in more than one Woot-Off.

Those of you that have the Galaxy S3 phone. What do you use as a protective case for it? I think I've already asked this question, but I'm asking again since I've decided I need to get something before the California trip. And just in general.

My coworker has the
Dualtek Extreme, which I'm leaning towards getting.
But also considering the Trident AG-I9300 AEGIS.
But just wanted to hear from some of the rest of you your opinions.

Is there anybody in the SF Bay Area who would be willing to supply me with a bottle of the F-2 flower bomb? I didn't jump in on the original offering, and I was disappointed to find that it did not appear during the woot-off.

Irrelevant afa the wine inside but I was very disappointed in the bottle art for the F-2. It's one thing for her to have an angry expression but she looks ugly-mean and has huge out-of-proportion man hands. The first bottle was really well done, this one not so much.

If not, I can bring one up for you to the Wootception in August.

I use an OtterBox Commuter, which I'm pretty happy with. You have to use more force to turn it on and off, but you get used to it. Hopefully I'll be able to show you it in August....

I have the Incipio Silicrylic shell dual protection case for Samsung GALAXY S III -Turquoise, and they should have it in different colors as well. Has worked well, and saved my phone a couple of drops.

I use it in conjunction with the Luxmo LU4HBK Horizontal Leather Pouch Belt Clip Holster Carrying Case. It says for iPhone, but it works just fine for the S3.

The saga continues: I hand scored my exams that did not have results last night. The full scan results showed up in my email about 12:30 PM today--24 hours later. However, there were differences in the scores. I double checked my answer sheet, which was fine. It turns out that whoever input the answers, messed up on two of the answers, costing many of my students 4 points! The errors got corrected and I FINALLY got my grades entered and complete by about 3:45 today! Now, to finish up the packing tomorrow.

Thanks! The good thing is that a number of others have been having similar problems. The entire Social Studies Dept.had issues and had to hand score also. We had our end of the year breakfast and our principal actually dropped an "F bomb" about this whole program! His attitude basically has become that grades will get done when they get done. So much of it is beyond our control. This from the Napoleonic control freak!

Neil had some suggestions for me when we were on the tour last summer, but of course I've forgotten. I don't know if he checks these boards, but he knows the area.

I just picked up a Nokia Lumia 920 on eBay... The iPhone 3gs I've had for many years just isn't cutting it.



(I chose the white model, as it was ending soonest on eBay, and was the lowest price.)

The Windows 8 bit is different, but overall, seems like a great devices. I'd say there are a noted lack of apps I'd like to get thought (compared to Apple and Android), although I haven't had an Android yet. Maybe that'll be next.

I'm sorry. I drove through Placerville with an intention to visit wineries, but in the end we just passed through on our way to Vino Noceto. It was a fail, I hope to try again sometime.

Avoid any discos. The players will be out in force.

Or did you mean Placerville? Only one I've heard of is Lava Cap (obviously, they have PS!!).

Hey folks, not to be a pest or anything, but if you are currently thinking you'll be coming to the wootception, even if you're still a "maybe", I'd really appreciate a quick little email or PM to let me know you're at least thinking about it. Trying to get a handle on # of people, and with the current response rate, we're way below what we've been planning for. If I need to make plan changes, now is the time to do it.

Yeah, we probably should have given you wooters a March 20th deadline....so that we would then MAYBE have half of the replies by June 20th, and the other half by July 20th.

Btw, your email only spoke of the Twisted Oak thing. Will you be doing a reply for the other one, or are you waiting until the deadline on that one?
