The Mis-Adventures in Technology of an Old Dog Learning New Tricks…

Ok so maybe I’m getting old! I actually had to look up the definition of “Rickrolled”, but it was worth my time and effort just for the laugh I got from the definition which is as follows:

To post a misleading link with a subject that promises to be exciting or interesting, e.g. “World of Starcraft in-game footage!” or “Paris Hilton blows Busta Rhymes‘ dick” but actually turns out to be the video for Rick Astley’s debut single, “Never Gonna Give You Up” – Urban Dictionary

Wish you could see what that YouTube video is about, before you click on that link? On today’s Tekzilla Daily, Veronica has a Greasemonkey script that converts URLs to the real title so you never get Rickrolled again.
