I dunno. I find UPS ground to work pretty well. I have a Fedex Ground package that was shipped on Wed from Illinois that is expected today. I just got off the phone with Fedex to make sure the package is delivered after 4pm since a signature is required.

It's a new Sony Vaio S laptop. It'll replace my existing laptop which is from 2004. I'm looking forward to using it and not having my lap get warm from the CPU/battery.


FedEx tried to deliver the laptop around noon even though I told them to not come until after 4pm. Apparently with Fedex ground, you can't specify a time window for delivery. So they'll try to redeliver it tomorrow (Saturday). I signed the slip so they can leave it on my porch if I'm not home for some reason. I hope I don't get burned here.

@BoneSnapDeez: Yikes, that's pretty underhanded. Never had any store do something like THAT to me.

@ BoneSnapDeez That bites. If the store is a franchise I would raise fuss with the District Manager and get that employee fired. At least find out who is the big boss and raise a fuss.

@ AppleQueso - Congrats on saving your TV!

Not video game related, but I rode in a longboard (skateboard) marathon today. Finished the 26.2 miles in 2hrs 20mins. 1st place finished in 1 hour 39 mins.

Smile: I finished the race, and kept a decent speed the whole time.

Ticked: Some girls didn't listen at the start when the fastest racers were supposed to be up front. The first major wreck from everyone trying to pass them happened right in front of me, causing me to tweak my knee and take a board to the ankle within the first 1/2 mile of the race; I skated the rest with a very sore knee. It was brutal.

Consoles: I have too much stuff
Arcade: No seriously, I have too much stuff. Someone grab a shovel and dig me out of my basement.

Can't do much about it unfortunately. It's an independent business and the person who pulled that BS is the manager. Best way to "get back" at the store would be to simply take my business elsewhere.

Their loss for local customers. Sneaky to do that, though as an independent a ploy to survive by selling at a higher cost online. Maybe post the store in the Retro Game Store Directory as a NEGATIVE, one to avoid?

Another reason why local game collecting in Maine seems to be a giant black hole of suck

:) : More hours at work than before.

Smile: Got Blade of Darkness up and running on my Windows 7 partition. Then I made some serious progress in it, for the first time in months. Also, this recipe.

Frown: This is still a ruthless game. I wish the bow was more useful. Once you knock an arrow, you're locked in place and you can't return the arrow to your quiver. This is fine for stealth kills, but it makes dueling the ranged enemies something of a pain. Luckily, you can usually pick your arrows up again. Between Demon's Souls, Diablo 3 and this, I need to find a relaxing game to play as an alternative.

Edit for another frown: This damn game just cost me a whole night's sleep. I don't think I played more than 3 hours of actual gameplay, but I'm so bad about saving...

Smile: Going to grill out today, play catch with friends, and do some yard work. It is a gorgeous day to do all of those things.

Ticked: I haven't seen Prometheus yet. Hopefully by Wednesday I will have been prometheonized.

Smile: Saw a play with a lovely lady yesterday. Both the show and the company were top notch.

Frown: What better way to follow up so awesome an evening than a morning of....laundry.
The PSTV is amazing.
