I just signed for a FedEx package and, out of curiosity, went to the FedEx site to see how accurate the tracking function is. Sure enough, the website said:

10:18 am Delivered

I signed for the package at 10:17 am, so that seemed pretty on-target. I signed on a paper form, which was presumably interpreted by either the driver or a computer system. There are still some kinks in the system, though. That, or my handwriting must be more illegible than I thought because, now, posted with the package's tracking details, is my name:

Signed for by: R.GATSBY

That's The Great Gatsby to you, buster. It's just a shame that my first name doesn't begin with a J.

Hi, Ryan, nice web site. You probably don’t remember me, and that’s OK. I am just so bored, then I remembered that you have a website ever since you were in High school. Great entries, very entertaining…I am not as bored after reading them. Ok, have fun!—-Jenny, SLC
