Darn....I have one gift left, ordered it after Thanksgiving. Was backordered (even though the site gave no indication, and continued to give no indication...I ordered it from them, for about $10 more, because a different site did indicated that it was out of stock...).
The confirmation email said it would ship around December 4th.
Still no sign of it, and the online tracking system wouldn't shed any info on it...because it would only say that something was shipped and that I received it, but nothing on the fact that they didn't ship the full order, etc.
So, I emailed about it. They say they plan to ship it around December 16th now. But, they didn't actually say they have it in stock or not....which seems deliberately vague.
Though it means I probably won't receive it by December 21st inorder to rebox it and try to overnight it to its recipient.
Meanwhile, the other item I ordered back on November 13th was a Swivel Holster for my Blackberry 7100t. They charged my card immediately. But, gave me no indication that they didn't have it or weren't going to ship it. A couple weeks later, they had updated their site as saying it would ship December 15th. DHL 5 day service....might get it in time.
But, I checked today...and now they are saying January....
And, I was thinking of ordering something else from them....but perhaps not.
Well, time to move the CPS700AVR that was displaced by the CPS1500AVR-HO under my HT rack to somewhere else.
I replaced the APC Back UPS Office 500VA that is covering something behind me. I thought it was my network equipment.
But, when I shut it down...my network didn't go down. I guess those items are on the CPS700AVR that backups my Linux server. Wonder what UPS (if any) is protecting my DVArchive/WiRNS/Poopli server.
Anyways...it was just my phone equipment (minus the Vonage box) that was on the 500VA UPS.
I have suspicion the DVArchive/WiRNS/Poopli server is also on the CPS700AVR of the Linux server and network equipment....so perhaps I should move the DVArchive server off....or plan an upgrade of that UPS. Though upgrading the UPS on my main computer is slightly higher on the list.
Took the first hot bath of the season....
Wanted some tunes, so I quickly setup my iPod and had it shuffle my "Top 100 Most Played" Smartlist.
Wonder what it says when out of 11 tracks...the representation was:
I suppose 3 of them being with Nettwerk or 3 of them being Canadian....or there's probably some other deep meaning that I don't want to get into....
How do I get a custom guide to show up for a Digital Cable box?
I set up a lineup on Zap2It...but it shows up for the Cable input on my ReplayTV (but not for the Digital Cable box).
I'm not in a hurry to get this working, but the cable company is changing its lineup on the 16th...and I want to keep the offset to my other inputs where they are.
The digital lineup is going to 4 digits. Hmm, I hope the box continues work.
Though what is happening is they are moving the on-demand channels in X-99 to 1000+. It is kind of weird, but the reason for the move is because 2-X is basic/standard cable...and they are adding more channels to standard (analog) cable.
One move is BBC America is moving from digital to analog. At first I wasn't happy with it....because I like recording it in digital. But, since I only have one ReplayTV on digital, but 4 ReplayTVs on analog....it solves the issue of conflicts....though by no longer recording The Screen Savers, the issue has long ago gone away.
Today was the first time I took a peek at FIBI's (First Internet Bank of Indiana) new BillPay interface.
I don't really like it.
The last is bad when you have more than one bill from the same biller. I have a FirstUSA Visa (now BankOne) and a Chase Mastercard. Eventually they will both be Chase. It'll be hard to see at a glance which one is which. Already that way with American Express. The thing is, you're allowed to set a shortname for each payee...why can't they show this instead.
Today's Delivery from UPS came earlier than expected.
The box was in pretty rough shape...but it would be a bad sign if the contents hadn't survived.
It's my new suitcase. Guess, I really am going to visit my parents this Xmas.
....I cut out of class, even though I had a final that afternoon to go out drinking with my fellow Engineering students at the UofC and the rival UofA to celebrate their end of class. UofC technically went until Friday....
