Anyone know who USPS use to deliver trackable parcels within the UK? I have one incoming at present, which has apparently cleared customs, and which currently shows "We attempted to deliver your item in GREAT BRITAIN at 5:18 am on November 16, 2005."

I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that their timing is in (some sort of) US time rather than UK time. But nobody's tried to deliver anything here today, or if they did they were extremely quiet about it -- which is basically impossible at present given how noisy our porch door is. I therefore suspect they may be using Parcelforce in the UK, which would be a shame since we already know that Parcelforce suck at delivering stuff from overseas. I may give PF a ring tomorrow pre-emptively, if I want to raise my blood-pressure a few notches.

Leave a card saying "we tried to deliver today"? Are you kidding?

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
