    Well the tracker says my powerbook is on the truck for delivery!! This will be the longest day. My office looks right out the window towards the parking lot. How productive do you think I'll be today waiting for this truck??

    Oh, I know...the waiting, the waiting...my friend and I are having a race to see whose "cram and jam" deal comes first. We ordered at the same time.
    His iPod arrived yesterday. Mine still hasn't shown up...it's scheduled for delivery tomorrow but I'm hoping against hope it will be a day early, like his was...

    My ibook is scheduled for delivery Monday July 19 "at or before 10:23 am" and I can't wait...except I have to go to a stupid chemical safety seminar at work at 10:00!! :eek: Perhaps I'll have my brother come sign for it...

    Well.... I'm at work....productivity is lacking a tiny bit between "mr fed ex guy" and the british open.

    I just hope the fed ex guy isn't having the same kind of productivity I'm having at this moment!!! :)

    Here is what you do. Go to FedEx.com and print out a picture of the truck and tape it to your window...then you can get even more excited and less work done today. If I were you, I would take a cell phone, go to a movie or park and take the day off...at least until it is delivered...then play to your hearts content with your new toy. :D

    Same here- My powerbook is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. When my iBook came in a few years ago, I did nothing but pace around the house waiting...

    You wouldn't believe what happened to me:

    First, we go to grandparents in Mississippi. We check the tracking the next morning, and IT'S BEING DELIVERED!! Thankfully, we signed the thing that lets them leave packages without a signature. Whew. But wait, look at the WEATHER CHANNEL! It's coming a huge storm at home (Arkansas)!! NOOOO. Water+new PowerBook= BAD! Oh boy. And then there's the matter of my dog, who likes to chew things on occasion. Oh joy. This is a time where it's good to have relatives living close by. Uncle goes by, gets the box, (which was wet, by the way) and saves the day!!

    Then all I had to do was WAIT and WAIT and WAIT.

    It was worth it though, as this is a beautiful piece of machinery. Too bad it's my sister's. :(

    Doh!

    The Fedex man came with my Airport Extreme today, but I was sleeping, and missed the him. Ugh, now I have to wait and go pick it up. Oh well. it will be worth it.

    'Out for delivery' can be really frustating. :D , Whenever I am waiting for something, even a small thing like video adaptor, and I see 'out for delivery' in the status, I call Fed-ex 4-5 times atleast, to check if they have some 'latest' whereabouts of the truck :) ..And it always comes in the afternoon.
    anyways congrats fr the purchase

    FedEx Man: "Hmmm I just don't want to let this powerbook go. I must wait as long as possible so I can continue staring at the beautiful box." :D

    I'm a-waitin' too...

    I'm also waiting for my PB which is out on delivery right now. Just to tease me, they deliovered my iPod on Tuesday (my Pismo doesn't have firewire, so all I can do with the iPod right now is scroll through the menus and play the games that come with it. Oh, and marvel about how small it is...). Still less than 1 week for a BTO computer is pretty damn speedy! I'm looking forward to getting the new computer: twice as much memory, three times the processor speed, four times the HD space! Oh, and way better looking. It's going to be a long day at work...
