    I'm sure Fastway would be happy to sign for it themselves and leave it on the letterbox

    Or NZ couriers would be happy to throw it at your front door

    Or Post Haste would be happy to disappear it into thin air

    Oh no, another mishap with the shrink ray gun. Hopefully they can restore that man to his proper height.

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    My first encounter with a disk drive was at Uni in Europe in the early 70's. The IBM drive unit was literally the size of a washing machine. To insert the massive disk pack you opened the top of the drive and lowered the pack onto the spindle. You then had to flick your wrist in exactly the right way to engage the lock. I could never get the damn thing in.

    It was in this period they came up with a new-fangled thingy called a "floppy disk", 8 inches diameter. Those were the days...
