I received this morning a new application of the term _Cyber Monday_.
Traditionally, I believe, the term was applied to the Monday following the
Thanksgiving weekend.  In the advertisement received this morning it applies
to this morning, perhaps chosen because it is the last Monday in July.
Other Mondays designated as "Cyber Monday" would be helpful in pinning down
the margins of the usage.
