Woot!

This one is really just something I threw together for my own amusement, but I figured I'd put it out there for anyone who might be interested

Oh, great--now I don't have to schlep all the way over from my bed to my computer to check Woot!

Thanks for making me even lazier. :mrgreen:

Nice!!
Do you take pay-pal dontations?
Love the flying monkey icon/tile too.

Can you add flashing lights in the main UI (where you have the woot tiles) when there is a woot off?
The more woot-bling the better IMHO.

Once again, good job!
I just listend to some podcasts via your channel too.

When the new Roku SDK comes out next month there should be a lot more fun ways to tweak the interface.

I don't know why but only one of the WOOT selections open for me.
And all that showed was two pics of some goofy gadget priced i think at $7 ?
kids WOOT - Monkey WOOT - Shirt WOOT - Wine WOOT none of those opened up.
kept it on there for 10 minutes each.
Tried for two days at all hours. Nothing.
Everything else on roku works just fine. WOOT = Useless.

Considering it's free, I find it plenty useful. It's a fun little distraction. You can't have too many ways to check in on the latest Woot! :lol:

Some of us are in our left minds, but that doesn't make us ga ga. No one is paying for pictures. This is a channel for woot.com, so I guess you have to understand that site to appreciate this channel.

Matt i dont think you understand anything i wrote
so i'll try it again
Kids WOOT - Monkey WOOT - Shirt WOOT - Wine WOOT
None of those opened.
why in the <The entropy of a perfect crystal, at absolute zero kelvin, is exactly equal to zero. - Third Law of Thermodynamics> would i appreciate a channel where only one item opens and all it is is a picture for a crappy kitchen utensil.
As for being left minded i'm ambidextrous so either i'm using all of my brain or none of it.
And in case you're wondering being ambidextrous is never 100% equal so it made sports harder for me but working with tools easier.
