Are you still in Texas, Artifex? LA to big city in TX shouldn't take a week+ (minus Sunday) but just shows how up and down the USPS is right now. One thing sent from LA to SF took 4 days when it should take 2-3 but the next thing took 2 days. Feel like we should all be donating $5 to the post office or something.

Yup. Though, to give credit, the Post Office actually had the discs at a local office on the 15th, according to the yellow forwarding stickies on them. They rerouted them to another address in the area based on an old forward I thought had lapsed. And it took them 2 days to do that! Last time I was an active member I shortened the delay by getting a PO Box; perhaps I will have to do so again. BTW, oh, nice, I see you implemented quick returns while I was away :) Testing it now :)

Followup: yesterday I received at the original address 2 discs sent on the 21st. Interestingly, they were not forwarded. But the disc mailed on the 19th hasn't been seen (it's probably being slowly forwarded). I think this has nothing to do with GC and everything to do with the Post Office being arbitrary in its handling of my discs. (Thanks for quick returns :))

Gave in and rented a box again, because the movies shipped on the 1st have yet to arrive. Sent in mail yesterday about it; hopefully they'll see it in time to adjust the queue today.
