Hey, Dell, it's no longer "President's Day"

I suppose that in the annals of marketing mishaps, this one rates merely a mention.That doesn't mean it isn't entertaining, though.

I suppose that in the annals of marketing mishaps, this one rates merely a mention.

That doesn't mean it isn't entertaining, though. And since this is Wednesday/"Hump Day," I thought entertaining would be good.

As I show you at the top of this post, I just received an email from Dell Small Business, touting their President's Day Sale.

Only problem is, this is February 20, and President's Day was February 18.

I then looked at the message header, and sure enough, the message was sent out at 12:43 a.m. on February 18:

There might be a temptation to blame my email provider Comcast. At least in my experience they don't do mail holdups for two days. Two hours every once in a while, but not two days.

Pure experiential speculation on my part, but I would not be surprised if this two-day delay was precipitated by glitches at Dell Small Business, or their email services provider.

I checked the sender address, and got www.ema11.net. The web site addy redirects, but the page just hangs.

What gives?
