woot! a woot-off

Is going on now, woot.com

Figured some might like to look at what they have/will have available, sometimes they've got some pretty cool stuff.

Essentially a house cleaning for them. Anything can pop up, and they sell x amount of the item. When it sells out, a new item is up for sale.

I see some orange flashing lights on the main page – what do they mean?

No, you aren't seeing a side effect from your allergy medication. You have found a Woot-Off, a short term frenzied mutation of our product posting procedure. In Woot-Off mode, a new product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous deal. There is a half-Woot-life of 12 hours maximum on any product within a Woot-Off that does not sell out. The number of Woot-Off items, sequence, and quantity will not be announced. When Woot-Off mode is over, the orange lights will disappear and our normal schedule will resume. Depending on its success, this may be a mode we would go into once or twice a month for a relatively short duration of time (24-72 hours generally.)
In other words, pure awesomeness
