    I've used ID for about four years now (maybe longer?) and find it very handy to see what's being shipped to me. I have similar notification for UPS and FedEx so I get texts whenever something is shipped to my address (and I can see those shipments on a dashboard.)

    Awhile back, I read about how everyone *should* sign up for it if you haven't - even if you think you don't need. It's a way to monitor for mail fraud - one of those chapped people from Jeff's high school could send things to your house, monitor for delivery, and grab the items without you even knowing that they were delivered. It kind of made sense. Much better that the *panic* I read about that said you shouldn't put those family member stickers on your car because then THE BADS would know your husband is in the military, and thus you're alone all of the time, and you have young daughters at home without dogs.

    My understanding last summer was that Informed Delivery was not yet fully rolled so some people do not have access to it. It shows images of most letters being delivered that day and a list of all packages en-route to you with the sender and an estimated delivery date and all available tracking. If it is available I highly recommend signing up for it. I was notified when it went live here because I have the post office hold my mail when I leave town for over 24 hours. Once it is live for your address it is the only way to request hold mail.

    Correct. It should be listed as backordered.

I think Dan might have created two packing labels initially by mistake before combining into one package. Because I just got one shipping confirmation that contained the two books mentioned above.
    Getting Husks with the chap book would be cool. I am scheduled to find out next Wednesday, the same day my Subterranean Press grab bag is scheduled to arrive. First time I have tried one of their grab bags.

    I too didn't receive all that much bullying. But I witnessed a lot of toxic bullshit. I never understood the need to break other people down. Still don't.
    Getting more into the weeds here; I can't say that I was really bullied either. However, you're always going to run into assholes an every stage of your personal and professional life. Some just happen to peak in high school. Sad.

    As far as Martin. The intimidation comes from the envy of his super fast internet. This was foreseen before his birth. And the people trembled before him......

I discounted the comment but have actually heard it multiple times in my professional life so I have come to accept it.

    So had informed delivery do something I have not seen before. The mystery shipment dropped off the radar. Have to assume it was a duplicate of the chap book.

    I have a CDCC10 Chapbook and a mystery package coming from CD. The mystery package may be a Freeman Patreon shipment as they sometimes come via CD without shipping notice.

    I went to White Privilege High on the south side of Chicago. An all-male college preparatory high school for the alpha sons of industry that only prepared me to hate the entitlement of the sons of wealth. My parents had to borrow money to send me there in case anyone was wondering why I don't count myself among the Sons of Privilege. ANYWAY, bullying was as much a part of that place as lockers. Ass-less chaps were mentioned during the time-honored inquisition process, when boys were indicted, accused, and put on trial for the crime of being less than MEN.
