This happens here all the time. They will not actually deliver. They toss the slip in the mail, and electronically it gets marked as "Successfully delivered". Then people freak out, but its really just at their postal center.

My CP delivery guy will not deliver a package to my apt. I get a slip and have to go to post office, if the package won't fit in the mailbox. our old carrier took the trouble to walk down 10 steps to deliver it.

The UPS guy in my area...tries a bunch of times, and if nobody home will give it to a neighbour to hand off.

I'd like to ask everybody an important favor. When you have time, help me to get more product reviews at the store. Your personal experience will help others in this overly confusing hobby! Good or bad -- share it.

(Reviews going trough approval process, but the only reason for that is to keep punks away and protection from showing spam, BS and swearing not related to anything.)

About the reviews Daz - I wrote up a small one a few weeks back on the low-speed triebwerk fan, but I really wish it didn't disclose my real and full name. Not that I mind the HWC community seeing it, but I'd be a lot more inclined to write more if my full name wasn't tacked on.

Any way of having just first name, or a screen name used for reviews?

Oh, I see. Let me found out how to disable this. Good point, thank you.

EDIT: FIXED. Last names were truncated to the fist letter. I'.e. John Smith shows as John S.

add in a points/reward system.
you will probably get more reviews out of it too.
most of us can't be assed to do reviews/comment. give an incentive and i'm sure it'll increase traffic to your site too.

We got a good rate from UPS staring today, but it doesn't show at the store's shipping options, so ...I enabled CP Expedited parcel option, which is really a UPS Ground.

I hope it is not too confusing. :)

Final update on shipping. Correct rates are now work fine. Check out UPS is THE SAME PRICE as Canada Post, but faster in most of the cases.
