Woot! I got crap!

I bought a Bag of Crap from Woot.com on Friday the 13th, and it arrived today, one day ahead of schedule. People across the country started receiving theirs last Saturday, and the anticipation of it was really the best part. I was pretty sure I was getting the same camera bag (cool) and thumb drive locks (lame) that everyone else was getting. The real question was what my good bonus crap would be. Almost everyone else seemed to get something else good, and some cheap Chinese toy. The box was labeled "Kensington Standard Keyboard - 10 Pack", and I know that a lot of people had received these. I was hoping I got one, too, because I'd like to be able to use it with my laptop instead of my smaller laptop keyboard.

No luck -- it's got a PS2 connection, not USB. Bah. But my daughter wanted a new keyboard,,,, because her comma key has a habit of repeating.

What else? My Chinese toy crap was a 5-pack of "color-your-own" velvet stickers, with 45 tiny stickers per sheet. Groovy.

But wait! I got a bonus crap: an alternator tester. Discontinued, but Google shows that it was $2.99 at Harbor Freight. Bill's claimed it :-)
