lurker: oh, good, i thought i was the only one here, talking to myself. Aug 6, 2020 8:20:50 GMT -7
desertbikes: No doubt. ::) I'm still in the north country among to pines. Crappy verizon signal but lucky I have anything. My usual spot was taken so while voice & test work OK, data is spotty. Aug 5, 2020 4:29:47 GMT -7
gonefishin: to hot to type :)) Aug 4, 2020 19:49:34 GMT -7
lurker: i order something in maybe once a month. heck, it's usually related to firearms and i tell you guys all about it. Jul 29, 2020 9:18:12 GMT -7
desertbikes: Yup at least 90% of the time. However I get at least 2 or 3 items per week via USPS so I have a higher probability of failures they're responsible for creating. On-Trac is the leader of lost or damaged goods so USPS isn't the worst. Jul 29, 2020 8:39:58 GMT -7
lurker: it's been my experience that the problem is not the USPS so much as the people outside USPS at the start of the process. regular mail takes a week at most to cross the country, more like 3 or 4 days, but fulfillment and customs can take weeks. Jul 28, 2020 13:08:09 GMT -7
desertbikes: Yes. I had forgotten about the high tech USPS labs. In March they stated with confidence, after pain staking genetic surface testing that, the mail was "probably okay to handle". The also CDC advised that wearing masks wasn't useful. Yup. High tech. O_o Jul 28, 2020 4:08:59 GMT -7
lurker: maybe they were testing it for you? mighty considerate, those USPS people. Jul 27, 2020 6:29:12 GMT -7
lurker: updated in polytech thread. arrival expected tomorrow. i'm so gullible. Jul 27, 2020 6:26:40 GMT -7 *
desertbikes: My personal record for longest ship time is 5 months. A PCP air/water filter shipped from Shanghai in Feb. I finally got it last month. It had been in the US since March. USPS had no explanation Jul 27, 2020 4:39:18 GMT -7
desertbikes: Ta da! With USPS it may still take a tour thu TX & OKC before it gets to you :D Jul 26, 2020 7:21:50 GMT -7
lurker: hooray! it exists! it's on its way! it's in ...minnesota? some time next week, i hope. Jul 25, 2020 4:33:22 GMT -7
desertbikes: If you print postage yourself with a tracking #, it's not scanned at the PO where it's dropped off unless it's 1st class or "overnight". Same if it's a home pickup. 3day flat rate box only gets a origination & destination scan. It's nuts. Jul 24, 2020 4:59:39 GMT -7
desertbikes: Besides the old trick of printing a shipping label to make it appear a thing has shipped, the USPS may only scan at the destination PO for delivery. Jul 24, 2020 4:50:59 GMT -7
lurker: ordered a small item on the 13th from colorado for poly, $25. on the 16th they claimed they shipped, but really only assigned tracking #. today 22nd they say it has actually shipped, but tracking doesn't reflect that. not happy with e-commerce. Jul 22, 2020 14:05:09 GMT -7
lurker: sci-fi, history and anthro are all mind-openers. math? zoom, over my head. maybe see if there's a library in the next town? Jul 21, 2020 10:41:45 GMT -7
desertbikes: Also a few hundred lbs of process control instrumentation & PLC manuals. Maybe 25 years worth. While the internal instrumentation electronics have changed over time, the theory of operation & system placement have not. Jul 20, 2020 7:53:05 GMT -7
desertbikes: I'll have to take a look. Most are in boxes that haven't been opened in years. Lots of scifi, some horror, history, anthropology, electronics & math. Jul 20, 2020 5:06:31 GMT -7
lurker: oh, silly me! books. whatcha got? Jul 19, 2020 19:37:08 GMT -7
lurker: my mom was an avid reader and when she died i had to put literal truckloads of them in the dumpster. that hurt, but bugs got in them, no choice. Jul 18, 2020 18:48:41 GMT -7
