I have a question for ya'll. Is it just me or are the servers back on line? Maybe everything Woot seems faster today because of lack of traffic.

Not bad. Dating since October (Halloween, to be exact). He's a year younger with an eleven year old son.

Just seeing where life takes me...

Did you retire, go back to work or still undecided?

Heh. I am kind of gadgeted out. I don't have an iphone, an ipad or a kindle.

If woot offers a successful, articulate, artistic Englishman, I will be the first to hit "I want one".

Can I offer you a foreign bride? (just kidding)

Hmmm...just looking for the "ideal", I suppose.

I can't say that I blame you.

I am, I am.

When I am dating, it seems like I get into long-term relationships too quickly.

Why can't I be like other women and try on a guy every month or so?

most people say it's the extreme width of the site they hate.

So, Josephus...what happened to the contests? Do they still occur? I see that they aren't chronological. And only 3 pages of entries?

when woot changed its format a little while ago, one of the main complaints was the lack of contrast between text and background on the main woot site; i think the background was light green and the text was a slightly darker green. they improved it a little, but it's still not as good as it could be. you could be suffering from low contrast reading.

It's just too damn bright...the mint sucks, I guess.

I think they need to do more color studies.

no chop contests for a while now. they still haven't posted contest results from the last few contests, either. contest participation seemed to wither away, mabe because the shirt.woot derbies had much larger payouts.

they killed it off. They had too many other things to do, and no willingness to let me and Shan completely take it over. They paid the winners of the final contests, or I was told they had taken care of that. I doubt monkey winners will ever get monkeys, though.

I was led to believe that they might bring it back in a different format, but I'm skeptical.

I never liked the t-shirt voting process. It is biased toward early entries.
