...here's the test (which won't be that great of a test since i'm posting late - damn time warner... anyways)... i didn't post on the woot forum... i'm wondering how many peeps check out this blog without being prompted to... any feedback is welcome... now to the woot... it's a close one... the woot's not that great compared to comparison shopping prices... pricegrabbber, shopzilla, msn, and shopping.com all have great lists with good prices and good merchants... but still any savings are good savings when it comes to hot laptops slash entertainment notebook thingies, right?... i'd check out the comparisonb sites to be safe... but as usual, the woot is great... no refurb + expensive/decent product = worth consideration... indeed.

I read the woot, then check here. You're now part of the ritual.

I checked the woot, then came here, as I usually do. I have you as a feed in Bloglines.

Normally check here first, but i'm on the road and didn't remember the URL, so I had to find it in yesterday's blog on woot.com.

Not a requirement, by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd keep posting the link on the woot blog. You're now an integral part of the 'essential and expected woot data' for the woot'o'the'day!!

No prompting needed for me, jessiebyrd004, I bookmarked your site in my firefox monday while reacherching the logitech music bridge, no song display, no woot. I bought a lynksys wmls11b two weeks ago from thing fling for $30. 811 b to connect to my notebook, remote, display of song info, powered speakers built in and removable, and powered by 12 vdc so it can be used outside off a 12 bat-pac or in my van. Anyway back to the point, I like the sound of your writing, and came here to hear you again after reading on the hp laptop. I bought a hp dv 5105 a year ago, wish I could have held out another year, but for my first it's v.good. Thanks for your hard work blogging and setting your own website. KRHAMIT
