Refresh rate and sold out refresh rate are cool. What about:

Refresh rate and refresh rate if under X%?

That way a user could still opt for 0% (sold out) or they could opt to speed it up when an item is less then say...10%. Because some items go quick! Even with your script I can still miss out and setting it for 2 seconds all the time is too much.

Food for thought, thanks for your work, it rocks!!!

I had the same thought. Until this feature is added (if it ever is), here's a simple modification to the source code that will do what you want (don't forget to restart the WootOff Suite and refresh woot.com):

In the function setRefreshTimer() change this:

// Refresh at a more normal rate.
setTimeout(refresh, GM_getValue("nRefreshRate", "10") * 1000);

to this:

if (percentLeft > 10) {
// Refresh at a more normal rate.
setTimeout(refresh, GM_getValue("nRefreshRate", "100") * 1000);
}
else {
// Refresh at a faster rate.
setTimeout(refresh, 5000);
}

This will keep your regular refresh rate when there over 10% remaining, and 5000 milliseconds (or 5 seconds) at 10% and under.
