So far no Bo'C. I'm not bidding on any more of those. Tried to give the dregs to the grandurchins and they left it at my house. Didn't want it either.

Woot seems to have changed something. I usually use wooters.us to track Woot-Offs, but they, and a couple of other tracking sites I've checked, seem to be stuck on an item that sold out a few hours ago.

Woot simply hasn't been the same since the Amazon buy-out. Now it's just "Amazon Lite!"

The server issues appear to be fixed. But the problems run far deeper these days. I used to buy one item a month or so. Now I'm thinking of uninstalling my Wootalyzer because it's been so long since I made a purchase.

I use www.TodaysDoD.com they have a woot-off tracker when there's one going on and you can filter out 'stuff you don't want to see.

Scoop, you're right as usual. Amazon has taken the fun out of it. You never hear anymore about someone catching a big flatscreen in a Bag o' Crap. It's a diversion. Or distraction. You choose.

And..... just like that, the wootoff is over. No BOC, nothing even remotely interesting. Just junk that Amazon wanted to be rid of, sold at 20% off Amazon prices.

Just got back from work, and didn't miss a thing. The Amazon overlords need to realize that the draw of woot was occasionally getting an unbelievable deal. Those days are gone for good, I'm afraid.

I wondered what was up with the quick and lame W-O 2 days ago then during the night there has been a 'down for maintenance' box and nothing to buy. Now this. I missed the B o' C too, and that's a good thing.

Maybe Amazon's gotten the word that long time wooters are not happy with the new Woot.
