I hate being so fucking honest! I went to the post office today to pick up my new 160GB Seagate Barracuda disk, got the package and asked “How much?” She looked a little startled and then realised that some papers were missing and I should indeed pay for it, but I had to wait until tomorrow for the papers to arrive. Had I just wandered off like the most natural thing in the world I'd have had a new harddisk to play around with now, and not have to wait another day. It might even have been a free harddisk. Damn!
I've ordered a MA-401 Wireless NIC with the same type of delivery. if they mess up once again I'll do my best to just take it with me and see what happens.
