Ok, I know I got bumped up from FedEx Ground to FedE2Day for free. Anyone else get this? It seems to me Apple has done this before, but I can't remember when exactly. Was it the original release of OS X in March, 2001?

By the way, I just realised that all of these OS X updates are happening on the 24th of their respective months. What gives?

Yeah, I was bumped to 2-day service, but I still have no hope of getting it today. I've been tracking my package, and it's been in Tennessee since 12:30 yesterday morning (central time), 1:30 eastern, and so on.

I was hoping to get it today to get it working at my office, but I'll have to wait because either (1) Fedex is being stupid, or (2) Apple delayed the shipment intentionally.

Curse you all! I'm going to be waiting all weekend to test drive Jaguar, and you'll have it sometime today.

Oh jesus, that above sentence was all too "geeky" for me. Let's just pretend I didn't say it.

I got bumped...from overnight to 2nd day. Much bitching to Apple Customer Service ensued, with the end result that I got my shipping refunded, so it was effectively a bump from standard ground to 2nd day.
