I had a UPS delivery today.  I was in the back of the house, playing with my 
Ham radio, and heard a loud noise from the front door.  When I got there, the 
UPS truck was pulling away, and the package (box) was leaning against my screen 
door.  Now here is the good part.  It had snowed just a little last night, and 
there was about 1/8 " of snow on the walk and stair steps leading up to my 
front porch.   There were NO, I repeat NO footprints on either the walk or the 
stairs.  The package had been thrown from the sidewalk up onto the porch, from 
about 20 ft or so.  It contained a Floppy drive, a computer keyboard, and 
several computer drive cables.  It was poorly packed, in my estimation, the 
keyboard was lying flat on the bottom of the box, and the rest of the shipment 
was padded with wadded up brown wrapping paper.  No bubble wrap, no "peanuts", 
just a few pieces of wadded up paper.  Surprisingly, there was no damage,  but 
you have to give the UPS driver an E for effort.  He
 did his best to damage the goods.  

In case anyone is thinking of buying computer gear from a place called Xoxide, 
be informed that they don't pack their shipments very well, and the order I 
placed on Monday of last week, and which they charged my account the same day, 
shipped on Thursday.

So far, I have not had any damage claims with either UPS, FedEx or USPS, but 
this one was close!!

Interesting.  I use both UPS and DHL on a regular basis and have ZERO
problems with either one.  USPS is an entirely different matter.
