Tracking Packages!

I bought a few things off Amazon the other day. Part of the fun of ordering things online is tracking how they get to your place (that and not paying sales tax). This is the tracking status for one item:

February 16, 2009 - 06:15:00 PM - HARRISBURG PA US - Shipment received by carrier
February 15, 2009 - 11:37:34 AM - Carlisle PA US - Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit

So it took about 31 hours for my package to go from Carlisle, PA to Harrisburg, PA. It's funny because Harrisburg is only a 30 minute drive from Carlisle, according to Google. I guess there's a big distribution center in Harrisburg and it probably sat around in a long queue before being checked in as received. I wasn't expecting the package until Friday, but Amazon says to expect it Wednesday, so I'm happy however it gets here.

Not sure what's up with another one of my packages. I told Amazon to combine them into as few deliveries as possible, and the other one is sitting there with an estimated shipping date of Thursday, which means it'll be shipped on Thursday but not arrive until a few days after that. Still fine because it's the least important item I ordered.

The last item comes from someone other than Amazon. They acknowledged the order today, so I'm guessing it ships tomorrow. It's a stronger wireless device for my laptop. I'm sick of using this crappy ADSL connection. I figured I'd pick up a better connection from another neighbor with a more powerful wireless device and antenna. :)
