I'm always amazed by this ...

Now, I realize that if I didn't live in "close proximity" (they've got a major distribution center out in the 'burbs here somewhere), I'd probably not get this service, but once again Tiger Direct has managed to deliver an order in less than 24 hours.

As those of you who have been following my video "issues" over on my Ning site, I've been having problems using my old digital camera for shooting those (#1 it won't hook directly up to the computer, #2 it won't record more than 3 minutes of video, even after I got it a new 2gb SD card). I finally decided that I either had to make some serious adjustments to what I wanted to do with the videos, or change cameras. So, yesterday I "went shopping" and found a webcam that had nothing but good comments (although it's only 1.5mp) for it, which was very inexpensive (with tax and shipping it was under $25), and had the features that I hope will get me to where I want to be with recording this stuff.

I placed the order around 4:30pm yesterday afternoon. The UPS tracking thing tells me that it was signed for in our building's package room (I've not gone downstairs for it yet) at about 9:30am this morning. That's a mere 17 hours for the paperwork to generate, the product to get packed, the package handed over to UPS, go through their processes, get put on a truck, and driven down here. Of course the "official" shipping estimate was 3-5 days, but it's almost "magic" to have stuff come this fast!

Kudos to Tiger Direct (and UPS, I guess) for amazing me once again!
