[Just Asking] What are you techie people are up to this Black Friday

Like everywhere people shop a lot during holiday season.

Some get pressed in the havoc of mob in big stores like Wallmart & Target.

Some sits around at home and buy online from Amazon and Ebay.

Some Internet business owners gets VPNs, cloud hosting and web services.

How do you guyz enjoy the "BLACK FRIDAY" or what are you people getting this time?

I'll probably still be recovering from over eating.

Ditto...

I saw some Christmas displays before Halloween this year!
Time for a backlash against commercial holidays.

I'll watch the videos of Black Friday fights in stores but that is it.

Supposed to be a50% chance of rain Friday and Saturday. Almost high enough that we might actually get some. So, I'l be watching that if it happens.

Had to take a tablespoon full of Drano. >:(

Ok, there was one item, a PlayStation 4/slim/1 TB, that I was going to buy for my son. It had been advertised as a Black Friday special for $199 for a week, and he wanted it real bad. So I entered the fray quite early this morning to grab my deal. And wouldn't you know it. There were NONE in stock, anywhere. They did have the same item for $299 however. This was a blatant example of bait and switch, and I once again* solemnly swear NEVER to purchase another Sony item, EVER!

Great chair to play Arduino in, and it is designed to take my weight.

Tom.... :slight_smile:

Do you have a haboob broom and a dust pan?

Nah, the dust just blows away. You gotta have a seal under the door though.

Little late, but I just relaxed at home and at work.

Don't want to be trampled on etc or be ripped of by shops. In Holland the price in a certain shop for a certain product on the 14th of November was 549 Euro, on Black Friday 629 Euro. Not the first time that it happened.
