OK, so I can't remember the name of the site (name's on the tip of my tongue, but can't remember), but a couple years ago a site was popular on this board that held sales on random things, with a limited quantity, and as soon as one item sold out, a new one would be listed. The sale lasted as long as it took to sell out on the item, so that could be 3 minutes or 3 hours.
So yeah... GOG is doing that with random games. As I write this, Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition is $1.50, with 74 copies left. It'll probably be gone by the time this is posted, but a new game will replace it. Take a look if you're interested...
EDIT: I believe the site I was thinking of was woot.com - they held lightning sales like this all the time. --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23

Remember last year when they gave it away free for 3 days or so? I got in on that. --- Fight Science with Wood http://gifs.gifbin.com/072010/1280303569_walmart-moonwalk.gif http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/8299/0341551001256026444.gif

They just had populous for free, but it it was gone within a second. It looks like they also had Omerta, Tropico 3, and Shelter for free at various points.

Yah, seems crazy. Potentially good deals though. Better than 6 hour flash sales.

Wow, Ultima 7 was gone in about three seconds. I have a feeling people with fast Internet speeds have the clear advantage here. --- Crimson night & Celsion moon, misfiction, not save the Player is Prayer, yes, Dance Romanesque and unfinished Romancia.
