Spent entirely too much time today playing with my bucky magnets :)
But hey, it was hot, and didn't feel like doing much else...
Other than that, caught up on some news feeds, did the shopping, did a bit of house tidying etc.
So my ThinkGeek package arrived today.
Yes it got here in three and a half days. So I would have been happier if I'd paid half the postage and had it take twice as long to get here. hrmmm.
So people got lots of cool stuff. The Khet game looked like it'd be fun, although a lot smaller than Laserwar. And the "black light" desk lamp (that was actually just blue I think) looked friggen spectacular in a dark room!
But my toy was the Bucky Balls. Actually ball-bearing sized magnets that are *extremelly* cool. I'd seen the video and a guy at work had a set, so I had to get myself some :)
An actual bucky ball!
I've really not had *anything* interesting to say the past couple of weeks (well seven years really - holy crap have I been blogging that long?!?).
ok, why not a rant about ThinkGeek. First, we have a $300 order, with a $127 postage fee.
And then they want to subject me to anal probing:
Thank you for your recent order with ThinkGeek. We would like to process
your order as soon as possible, but we need to verify some information
before this can be done.Acceptable verification information chose one of the following:(A) (Credit Card orders only) A copy of the credit card used to order,with only the last 4 digits showing AND a copy of your government issuedID.OR(B) (Credit Card or PayPal orders) A copy of a statement from a serviceprovider or financial institution, that shows the billing addresssubmitted during checkout.
Given the ridiculous prices and postage fees, and now this, I doubt I'll be putting in a ThinkGeek order again any time soon, if ever.
