@ruouttaurmind HAHAHA - with selling 2 and 4 of things even if you are on here you likely will miss it. Just keep your phone in your lap and then you can stare at your crotch discretely check it while in your meeting. Students in class do that all the time and then wonder why I know what they are doing. Of course the other big clue that they are “distracted” is when you call on them and they don’t even hear you.
Holy… didn’t expect to get it by 12:45 am. I’m almost done work and now I can safely go home without worry about this now. I don’t expect to see it until June and I don’t care! I already bought one of the first items as well. That and I love the order name.
never get why the robot question is only on the IRK, and not for the drone. My credit card never ask MEH each month when they go to auto-charge my MVP to check a box to ensure they are not a robot and an actual human asking for the charge.
I did manage one later; it was mostly just watching the green bar flip around a few times, failing, then trying again, failing again, then seeing sold out was more crushing than my usual course of just signing in and seeing it already sold out
I think it was up for so long because it was not obvious that it was an IRK unless you read it on the bottom of the picture of the bag. One month shipping? I will have forgotten by them. It will be a pleasant surprise.
Does internet speed play a part in not getting an IRK?
After I failed to get one ,I tested my internet and I’m getting 47.7mps down and 5.01mps up
If you got one I’m curious what your speeds are. (if you didn’t get one I’m also curious what your speeds are)
If someone else has gathered this data I’d love a link to it
@sixsmith I have gotten them in the past with 25mbps and likely not operating at full capacity since I live in an apt building with tiny apts and it is hard wired just for this service. As a result it can be hard to find a channel that isn’t being shared. I am sure it would be easier with a faster connection though. Check your computer time against atomic time. It may be you tried a touch late if your computer is running behind.
@Kidsandliz Just checked my time, it was synchronized yesterday, but I just re-synced in.
I’ve only gotten one of these things and that was 4 years ago, that was shortly before I started actually logging my internet speeds. But good to know speed isn’t necessarily the name of the game
@jewelshound haha, haha, I bet those speeds are nice, my ISP occasionally tries to upsell me and I keep telling them the only upgrade I’d consider would be to gigabit, I don’t actually need it, but it would be nice, plus, it’s actually reduced their calls because they have no plans to roll out gigabit in my area
PS, if you aren’t familiar with the feature look into playback speed, I’ve adapted to 2x speed and it lets me consume more books
@sixsmith Some years ago I got one with 3 mbps. But I’d suspect I was incredibly lucky on top of that too. And I’d guess back then fewer people were trying. Don’t wait for the address bar to refresh on it’s own. Reload the page manually. Watch your clock and meh’s timer to see if they both switch over at the same time. If not see how you have to adjust for that. Good luck getting one. Usually they offer them more than once.
@Kidsandliz thank you, excellent tips, I’ve tried manually refreshing in the past, but that’s always seemed to trigger the capatcha where as when I wait for it to refresh automatically I can just click the box. Of course, neither method has netted me anything in the past 4 years so I guess it’s worth trying the manual refresh again.
I hit refresh as soon as the timer was up and hit buy and decided to renew my membership for shipping, site kept telling me there was an error and to try again until it started saying it was sold out. It did however charge me for renewing the membership before crashing on the actual purchase! Fuck you Meh.
The IRK lived up to its name this time, slightly redeemed by the $1 value of one item, the bag, and the fun (I guess) of playing.
-Black IRK bag (I wish these weren’t so narrow, but otherwise fine)
-Monster iClean kit (I just bought an 8-pack for $8 for a library prize pool… now I have 9)
-Michael Kors iPhone 5/5S case (we use geriatric Androids)
-Vestia wine stopper set (but no vac system)
-Wonder (or C Wonder?) “Large pouch nordic geo,” MSRP $48. No obvious intended use. Not a purse, not a clutch. Not useful as a tablet case, as the inner pocket’s zipper would scratch the hell out of contents. Weird.
firm believer here that it’s easily worth $5 just to be in the hunt, and life right now is a damn challenge, so getting an IRK is a gift in and of itself, but…I’m genuinely thrilled with my IRK. again.
am I doing this wrong?
black IRK bag
polka dot sonic toothbrush. if I ever travel again (sigh) I’ll use it for sure
lovely mug for my daily hot chocolate
palm cooler hat, which mr pk ran off with immediately

Got mine yesterday.
Black IRK bag.
Two handbags well actually clutches that will get donated
A kids pair Croc’s that will go to my neighbors.
and a mug with a weird handle.
This is the roll of the dice with the IRK. I got what I paid for and I have no regrets. Will do it again with the next one.
/giphy no regrets
