One of the things I got this Christmas was a Tivo -- something I'm very excited about. But what made me more excited was that even though we ordered a 40GB version, they sent a 80GB version!
Even if they don't send you a higher model than you ordered, they have a great promotion where you pay only $50 for the hardware when you prepay the monthly service for a year.

Why PayPal Sucks
Yet on today, one of the busiest shopping days of the year, their downloadable log files decided not to work. For no reason. And that's all they told me: "Please try again later."
This is topped only by an email received from PayPal earlier in the weekend:
I couldn't believe they were serious. After waiting a week for a response for a serious issue, they just decide not to answer my question and then have the nerve to tell me what to do if I have "further questions"?
PayPal sucks. Right now, at least.
Edit: Apparently the history problems are only with the accounts with the highest numbers of transactions. In other words: their best customers. Go figure.

From Florence to Baltimore
On Saturday evening, I arrived at Baltimore's Penn Station. Over 48 hours earlier, I had left Florence's airport. Quite an adventure, indeed.
Some of my friends were bumped off of the flight in Florence because too many girls had too many shoes -- so many shoes that there was a weight problem, and they had to bump people to make room for luggage. Other highlights included waiting in lines, waiting in lines, and waiting in lines.
Be on the look out for all that I've been meaning to post, but just haven't had time to.
