    To reiterate from the last thread:

    Got my package and I found out why I missed them yesterday. Fedex was delivering packages in a ****ing U-Haul.

    First time for me. Worse when you're waiting to sign a package but you have no idea that you should be looking for a U-Haul.

    I still have my 2nd gen 80GB Zune. Works just as well as the day I bought it in 2008, the only difference is that the battery life is like 1 day at best

    I had the 120GB. It was a beauty. I had a Zune HD too, which had less storage but overall perfected the MP3 player.

    I’d like to take this moment to say a big f*** you to all package delivery services because multiple different ones have left expensive electronics out in the rain WITHOUT EVEN RINGING THE DOOR BELL.

    Including years ago where they left my brand new laptop out in the rain, leaning up against the garage door, in the middle of a weekday, and the only reason I knew it was there was from checking the package tracking info.

    What brown can do for me is go f*** themselves.

    I've honestly had way better experiences with UPS compared to Fedex.

    I've been in my house for four years. Every single FedEx delivery we've received here has gone to the same house number one street over. Every time I call and they assure me it's fixed.

    UPS may leave my stuff out in the rain, but at least I can find it.

    Sounds like you can find them too when it's FedEx so stop complaining.

    Make a UPS account and you can set up email/text alerts for your more expensive deliveries. You'll get notifications when delivered or any other pertinent updates during shipping.

    You can also set delivery times (to an extent) and give specific instructions for where you want them to drop your package.

    Most of this is free but there are some upgrades you need to pay for.

    After the merger the company will be called Fed-Up.

    Have you ever ordered from LimitedRunGames? They look reliable, but I've never tried.

    I don't think I can turn down a Switch physical copy of Divinity: Original Sin II even if it'll take 2-4 months to arrive.

    I haven't yet. I always see them retweeted by the NintendoWire account on Twitter. But I'm really tempted to buy.

    Bubble Bobble 4 Friends receiving limited Standard, Collector's physical editions | Nintendo Wire

    Edit: Jeez there's LimitedRunGames and StrictlyLimitedGames. Son of a biscuit. Haven't ordered from either place yet gonna check Reddit posts to see if there's any negative experiences.

    I've known people to purchase from them and it seems to be fine. Not sure about the shipping, but apparently they deliver what they say.

    Back home from two weeks in London. Weather was great and took the family to a lot of what I have enjoyed in previous visits.

    Note to travelers with infants/toddlers: everything takes 3-4 times longer. :laugh: Neighbourhoods I visited in one day last time took 2-3 days this time. :laugh:

    Got to watch a couple of early Flyers games on one of the weekends, but pretty much missed everything else. I seriously admire the dedication of you Euros that watch games starting at midnight or later on a regular basis. I got through the first period of one game before passing out, so didn't even bother trying the rest.

    @Hollywood Couturier, I dropped my Authentic Fan card off at customs on my return.

    Happy to be home, but miss London already. :(

    I appreciate you doing this the easy way and not making me have to hunt you down. Very noble of you. For that reason I will allow you to keep the card.
