Today is No Pants Day, a participatory holiday that falls on the first Friday in May and has roots in Austin, TX. Since 1997, people there have been encouraged to go about their day without wearing any pants.
According to Real Austin Texas, “The idea is that the more people running around in their underwear, the more fun and joy there will be in the world for at least one day.”
What has this to do with OWC? Well, since Other World Computing has recently opened our newest location in Austin, TX we’ve decided to embrace the local customs and holidays. That means we’re taking Casual Friday to a whole new level today. As the old proverb states, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” So off with the pants!
For those in our Texas or Nevada locations, I’m sure today is plenty of fun – walking around like you’ve just plumb forgotten to put your pants on.
But those of us in northern Illinois are finding it a bit cold outside still for this to be comfortable.
On my drive into work, it was 39 degrees outside and raining. While I never really get a chance to show off my collection of superhero boxer shorts, trust me, no one wants to see this nerd’s cold, wet legs.
But for those of you bold enough to liberate your legs today – Happy No Pants Day to ya’ll!
All of you who want to get those great OWC products you got for Christmas set up before the new year (or to get more stuff, because we can always use more) will be glad to hear that the OWC Call Center will be open until 10:00pm CT tonight to answer your tech questions or place your last-minute orders. Additionally, Live Chat support will be open until at 10pm tonight.
We will be closed Tuesday for New Year’s Day which is a national holiday with no standard delivery services operating nationwide.
Live Chat will resume on Wednesday 1/2/13 at 12:01AM, CST, and our Sales, Technical Support, and Customer Service lines will re-open at 8:00AM.
OWC is wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and SAFE New Year!

Well, Christmas has passed, Hanukkah is in the final stretch, Boxing Day has come and gone, the Festivus Pole has been put away, and now we’re looking at the end of the year. For some, this means getting those “extras” like more RAM or an SSD for their new Mac, a case/carrier for their new iPad, or more storage to hold all those new digital photos and music. For others, it’s a matter of getting that new equipment for the office by the end of the year for tax purposes. Still others may just want a great deal on something they really want.
No matter what your reasoning is, OWC has the gear you need, and can get it to you before year’s end.
Did you get a new phone, tablet, mp3 player, or other device that charges via USB? Don’t mess with those bulky and ugly wall adapters or tie up the USB ports on your computer simply to charge it. The award-winning Power2U wall outlet from Newer Technology is the first UL-listed wall outlet with integrated USB charging ports.
For those of you looking for an amazing deal, we still have a sizable list of holiday specials left on our Holiday Savers page. You can find memory upgrade kits starting at $26.50, DIY 2.5” Hard Drive Bundles up to 1.0TB, and much more.
And if you order by December 31, and use the Checkout with Amazon option on your order, you can save up to an additional $50 on your order.
Let your computer start the new year the right way: with upgrades and accessories from OWC!
