    Don't feel bad, Ron. I've yet to have a single package show up on Informed Delivery. I do see they have a new feature where you can keep your electronic signature on file for packages that has Signature Confirmation. I don't get many packages that require my signature, but it's cool for those that do.

    So for the first time, that I can recall, today I received a package that never appeared on Informed Delivery. Someone here also mentioned receiving Something Wicked recently without it appearing on Informed Delivery. I have to assume this is a result of the current shipping issues. On a very bright note the package was the replacement copy for Westlake Soul. I finally have that one in my hands!
    And so that I can feel smug and righteous and continue to curse the failed promise of Informed Delivery, the Post Office played right into my hands today: I received a package from Centipede today (not WICKED, but rather the two new John Franklin Bardin novels*), and the Informed Delivery today shows, of course, "0" packages, and it wasn't misfiled under Letters. Nor was this package featured for advance/label notice. Hopefully you're right, Martin, and it'll start working as expected once the holiday rush is over. Frankly, were it not for that as-yet-undelivered copy of WICKED that's got my bookish anxiety ratcheted up, I wouldn't even worry about it.

    * I had requested a particular number to match Centipede's (Millipede's?) earlier S/L HC copy of Bardin's THE DEADLY PERCHERON, but these two books missed that limitation number by one digit. So, so close, yet so far away...ah well, they make a fine looking set regardless (and they're all three outstanding reads).

    I've occasionally had packages show up that weren't listed on Informed Delivery.

    I've also had packages not show up after being listed on Informed Delivery. They eventually showed up in all cases, but it's annoying as hell (and slightly worrisome) to be told to expect a package and it's nowhere to be seen.

    Thanks, guys, I'll continue to use Informed Delivery and hope it becomes more informative and useful. Of "Letters" I only see about 2/3 of what's actually delivered, and of "Packages" it's yet to indicate one is on its way or has been delivered, while I've received a half-dozen packages in the time I've had Informed Delivery, so not sure what's up with that. I *think* I see where one would see where a label has been created, but it indicates nothing has been created, so I guess my Centipede WICKED is not in the newest batch. I'm starting to get a little concerned, and was hoping Informed Delivery would calm my worries, but no such luck yet.

    I have had a few letters and packages arrive without showing on Informed Delivery but generally it has been a very useful tool. Hopefully your dashboard is just a victim of the overwhelming demand of Christmas 2020 and it will start being useful to you soon.
