To go along with my new netbook I purchased an SSD from www.tigerdirect.com. They had a sale. Ninety dollars for 120 GB, a pretty good deal. I picked the the free shipping which they claim takes 8-10 days. I was in no hurry so I didn't care about it taking that lone. Once get the confirmation that it had been shipped I went to check the tracking number just for fun. I saw that it was coming from Carol Stream Illinois. This is great I thought. I live in Illinois. No way this will take 8 days. They then proceed to ship it to Missouri. Where it sits for a few days. Finally today they are shipping it to me. It won't take 8 days, only 7. I guess I got that going for me.
Update: Somehow they did manage to make it take 8 days to ship something 100 miles.
