Leopard for Free!

with one comment

Well, almost. So I had emailed Amazon to ask why my Leopard shipment hadn’t been picked up by UPS. They responded saying that they didn’t know why the tracker was wrong because UPS had picked it up and it was on it’s way, and they promised to follow up.

Tuesday night, the tracker still shows the order waiting to be picked up but Teri confirmed that a package from Amazon had actually arrived so all was good. However, last night I got an email from Amazon saying that they regretted that the package appeared to be lost and they want to know if I want an immediate refund or a rush re-shipment of my order.

So…… morally bankrupt Paul says ooh, get a refund and enjoy a free copy, but I will of course do the right thing and tell them I did get my stuff after all.

This weekend both my Macs, and my Macbook from work, will be crazy busy making DVDs for da side biz so I probably won’t get around to doing any installs until next week.

Hey Amazon, Where’s My Leopard?

with one comment

Update: Amazon tells me that the tracker is wrong, according to their mole at UPS, the item is right now out on the truck for delivery.

My copy of Leopard is supposed to arrive today but according to UPS they haven’t even picked it up yet, they have only received notice that there is a package to deliver. Maybe it is in the mail and their tracking system is hosed so I’ll wait until tomorrow to ask them wtf is going on.

Oh, my mandolin arrived last night but it will be Friday before I get to see it.

Talking of Macs, here’s a good deal on a 24″ iMac 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB RAM for $1300. Wish I had some money to replace the Mac Mini.
