Journal Journal: Stupid WDC, UPS & MBE

The other day the Western Digital Hard Drive died in my Dual-733 Win2k box. (Note: I have several boxen, including a Linux, BSD and Mac OS Box). So I filled out the RMA form on Western Digital's website, and I took my hard drive to the local Mail Boxes Etc to be shipped via UPS to Western Digital's repair office.

No problem, I thought, as the lady packaged the drive and RMA number. Well, it's been a week, and UPS has never received any record of the shipping address I sent. Nor has WDC gotten my hard drive yet...well, I guess I'll have to run to Mail Boxes Etc, and see what they'll give me...Update coming soon.

Update: 8/22 It turns out that Mail Boxes Etc, changed my shipping number and WDC was slow on updating their computers. The new drive is scheduled to arrive at my house this afternoon.
