That's my guess. Ah...Cool Breeze. That was my very first shirt.woot purchase. Hard to believe that was over three years ago now. I skimmed the comments section of cool breeze and was reminded that the short list/reckoning was only 10 to 15 shirts at one point.

Times have changed.

Too bad that the east coasters got totally screwed on buying today's woot shirt. It's 3:31am, and it's already sold out?! Total crap.

I am so disappoint that this is sold out already.


Oh well, definitely one worth shelling out the extra $5.

For those that didn't catch it, the code to solve the writeup is in the artist description:

"Bassanimation knows a cheat code that goes apcig mhorbjlfd eqks. Good luck."

The order of the lines is the order of the letters, just skip "n" when counting. So read line1 first, then line 15, then 3, and so on.

Big mind-bending congratulations bass! Seeing you get a front and back print was like wrapping my mind around the premise of Portal itself. A well deserved sellout.

Well, that was quick. Congrats Bass! I almost bought it because of the cute li'l mouse. I am not a gamer.

C'est la vie!

With all the Portal 2 hype today, I doubted the shirt would last past noon and I was right.. Sold out within 2 hours! That's gotta be a wootshirt record. Now I wish I bought more than 1.

This may be the fastest total sellout of a shirt I've ever seen... How did do many portal fans manage to stop playing and buy this? Crazy...

Starting tomorrow, it will be available for $15 for at least a week. That's what the whole Reckoning thing is about.

Given how fast this sold out, though, it'll be available for sale for muuuuuuuuuch longer than a week, though.

A (portion of a) day late and a dollar short, so to speak... I reckon I will have to get it another way.

Great design.

Now I bemoan my distraction. If only I had checked in prior to 3am. Well, I shall see this shirt on the reckoning! Good thing I have a discount due to my random shirt purchases :D

Guess I'll be paying $15 for this when it comes around again. I'm on the East Coast and normally I can get every shirt I want before I go to work. Too bad, but a great shirt -- rare to have a back design as well.

Wow. What a thing to wake up to.
I don't get the reference, and that write-up certainly isn't going to help matters. But congrats, Bass! I like the illo even without knowing what it means. And a front/back print - double score!

Well, if you look at the sales statistics, the east coast is pretty much on the zero end of the scale, so... I'd say his comment is pretty much accurate. After all, who is going to wake up at 3 AM to check the shirt?

I feel like a total loser but here's a walkthrough on the write-up.

Wear this shirt: and namecheck Narbacular Drop. You'll look like a videogame hipster.
Don’t wear this shirt: on bring-your-daughter-to-work day.
This shirt tells the world: "Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage.”

LOL, I was thinking the same thing when I saw the SOLD OUT this early. Her artistry will be desperately needed today.

Congrats Bass!

And I have one question. What the heck is up with Montana?
