Grrrr.... More UPS bitching...

Well remember those bits of Moya's that I've been expecting? Well they are now (semi-officially) MIA. No one is quite sure where they got off to, but they didn't get here (and that is the big problem). I've talked to the main UPS call-center, the local UPS branch, and the shipper and in all cases, the answer is: "we'll look into it but it might take a couple of days).... Blah....

The only good thing about this is that if UPS lameness is directly related to computer studliness, then the new Moya will be quite hardcore. Of the past dozen or so computers that I've made, anytime that UPS didn't screw up, the machine tended to have issues, but if UPS managed to foul things up in some way, the machine (once it's built) will be very reliable and studly...... At least that's what I'm going to tell myself until I have a new, working machine.

Oh, and can I just add that I now really despise reading legal documents that have to do with the sale of properties. There should be no reason for anyone to write in such a convoluted and unnatural way. Anyone care to guess what I've been doing all afternoon? (aside from being on the phone with UPS)

Anyhow. This will definitely go down in the record books as one of my top 5 most uncooperative weeks, ever. I soooooo can't wait for Friday.

PS However, do note that I said uncooperative and not bad. This hasn't quite been a bad week since on the whole I'm not really any worse off than I was last week, it's just been a week where a lot of things (some big and some not so big) don't quite seem to work out the way that they were supposed to...

what type of shipping did you pay for?


and speaking as somebody who knows the type, I'd say that a convoluted and unnatural way of speaking is downright annoying hehe...
speaking or writing...though it sounds good in certain types of research papers :oP
Apparently I paid for the 3 day shipping where they lose your package for 3 days before (apparently) finding it again and finally delivering it.

It looks like the package was finally found this morning. It shows up as being scanned and out for deliver today (the last couple of days it wasn't being scanned or showing up at all). I guess we'll see what happens with it....
