I've never lost anything via the USPS....UPS however, sent my video card to the completely wrong address and some lucky bastard got a new $150+ card. .

are you sure it was it ups? i mean, the place you bought it from could have given them the wrong address.

all it'd take is one screwed up line of shopping cart / order processing code to pull the wrong info from an SQL table, and send all of your goods to guam.

not that i'm defending ups - i've just been seeing a lot of fubar shopping sites lately...
