I have a couple friends who have bought the woot roombas and they swear by them. I ended up buying the sage one today on woot for $140. I'm going to give it to my wife for an anniversary present. Very Happy

If nothing else, I think our kids will be motivated to pickup their rooms so they can see the roomba at work.

What's really cool, are all the roomba hacks out there. Some folks are way into modding these things.

I also bought two of the FM transmitters they had on earlier today. I love using these when we watch movies on the laptop on road trips.

Are you insane???? LOL! I, as gadget forward as I am, would not appreciate a roomba for my anniversary. My first husband gave me an iron and ironing board for my birthday once.

Never thought about the modifying thing that's funny.

I got the iriver transmitter a few weeks ago, it works really well around here.

That is a PIA. What I finally figured out was that I needed to right click on the "I want one" button and open in a new tab. THAT one won't reload.

I'm not using that add-on, but it must keep reloading the tab until you close it?

You set it up to reload the tab every x minutes, yes.

The problem is that when you click on a link from within that tab that it will continue to reload THAT page every x minutes as well.

What would be nicer is a function to reload a particular page in a tab every x minutes. If you leave that page it automatically stops.

In this case I use it for the MnGCA forums. It works great but sometimes I forget I have it on, click on a new thread, then click reply. A minute or two into my reply it reloads the page, wiping out what I typed.

Right clicking on the new thread would solve the problem, and I'll give it a try, but it is a pain.

Yes, that would be annoying. You can also hold down the control key while clicking the link. It is the same as right click and open in new tab.

You can always buy the shirt the next day for $15.00. I like it as well and may buy one tomarrow.

I didn't know that. Not sure if I want it that bad.

I didn't notice it in the image but someone posted in the woot forum that the W coordinates are backwards and get larger as you go to the right. Smile

Hey, it's just like caching... I wasn't fast enough (for a FTF) I got (a bit before the servers crashed):

you're in line, if a woot becomes available.

we're basically sold out, but if someone ahead of you gets denied, we'll sell it to whoever's in line.

No 'Badgers of Courage' for me Sad
