Nor Rain, Nor Snow, etc. (January 21, 2006)
Man, my computer server really got
bashed in the mail, even though it had thick bubble wrap plus a
thick surrounding layer of styrofoam peanuts. The DVD drive you see
in there started out properly orthogonal, and it is held that way with
metal tabs inside the computer. To bend it diagonally like this, the
metal tabs inside had to bind.... and sure enough, when I looked
inside, they had. It was hard yanking it back into the proper
configuration again. I hope it still works!
What were the mailmen doing to be so rough? Did they put a piano
on top of my boxes? And then jump on them?
