DELL pulled a quick one on me AGAIN!


Found this on slickdeals the other night through my buddy Hawk – ordered 5 of the 500gb drives, cost me $20 w/ shipping.  Figured I could build a pretty decent NAS out of those things even though they are 5400 RPMs. . .  then I end up getting an email today:

Mr. / Ms. Customer:

I am sorry to inform you that Dell has canceled your recent order #992027718 due to a pricing error.  The price shown was incorrect and far below the correct price for that product.
As indicated on our web site, as well as in our catalogs and other advertisements, Dell reserves the right to cancel orders resulting from pricing errors.  Because of the large difference in price, we have not reinstated your order, but we invite you to visit to re-order at the correct price.
We value our relationship with you, and we sincerely regret this error and the resulting inconvenience.  Please be assured that we are working hard to prevent errors such as this in the future and to improve your overall experience with us.
The Dell Customer Care Team.
Damn Them!


This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
