I ordered up a new computer for Anna this weekend with a complement of additional memory, graphics stuff, and other necessities. Dell is currently selling an entry-level (read: not particularly upgradeable) 2.66ghz machine for $400 after mail-in rebate, while my current 2.0ghz machine cost me $2000 two years ago. The only downside to the entry-level machine is its lack of AGP slot for 3D graphics cards. If you don't play many of those, it's definitely a good deal.

The additional memory got shipped from Crucial. I ordered it Friday and it arrived in Herndon on Saturday. Since then, it's been showing the dreaded "Pacakage not due for delivery" on the FedEx site. What this means, for people lucky enough to have never shipped through them, is that the package is already in a truck tooling around town. However, the due date from the sender is still a couple days away, so FedEx will intentionally sit on the package (probably literally) until its due date because there's no pressing need to deliver it.

What this means for me is that the package I could have easily gotten during the day on Saturday will not be delivered until tomorrow afternoon.

Yesterday's notable search terms:
