We don't have it vs. We used to have it

My Banana Republic jeans were starting to get a hole in the right knee and has luck would have it a 15% off card came in the mail from the aforementioned brand. I went to their web site and here's what turns up when you search for a 36x36 jean:

Hmm. Nothing in my size. That pretty much sucks, because my non-holed black 36x36 Banana jeans fit perfectly and I had my card out and ready to purchase a blue/navy/indigo pair.

I did a quick Google search and Macy's is running a Google Adwords campaign touting tall jeans... so I jumped over to their site and did a similar search. They had a few pairs available, none to my liking, and this:

Notice it doesn't say they're out of stock. They're no longer available, as in "we will never carry this style again". Now I'm no programmer but I'd probably change the search results to not show jeans that aren't being carried anymore. That's just cruel.

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."

Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.

Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
