Default Re: Choosing new monitors

Gotta love FedEx (although I USUALLY use UPS).

My monitor's estimated time of arrival per Dell's page was 04/02/2009. Once I got the FedEx tracking number the date was changed to be 03/26/2009. I looked this morning to check progress (I mean, how can you NOT?!?!), and I find THIS:

Mar 25, 2009 3:44 AMOn FedEx vehicle for delivery

WOO HOO!!! That's not bad for shipping that was FREE, and SUPPOSED to be 4-5 business day, but 3 day in reality, unless you count Sunday. In theory, I will have it up and running at the house tonight after work. I CAN'T WAIT!!!
