No, I rarely eat from pizza franchises like Papa John's, Domino's, or Pizza Hut, but they're the only type of business I've seen with such "progress meters".

I'm teasing- just the "shipping" label on the progress meter made me imagine UPS delivering.  Tongue

It irritates me when companies don't email me to let me know my order has shipped. /firstworldproblems

I've had the email arrive after the delivery. Twice. (To be fair, they were both out-of-this-world fast deliveries, but still.)

I just received word that a friend I met via a music board I frequent, is now going to be the COO of New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center. He hasn't announced it publicly yet.

That is tremendous, and undoubtedly a tough responsibility since they have the reputation being in the top 10 hospitals in the world.

Even more interesting is the fact he listens to about 100x more music than I ever have. His record collection is immense.

He turned me on to a rare DJ Shadow BBC1 one-off show that I am forever grateful.

1) Order some food online from the website of a local pizzeria.
2) Confirm order.
3) "Order has been submitted. Thank you."
4) "Please call if you wish to pay with a credit card."

Wait, wut?


5 months later and the problem remains...

EDIT--Btw, I blame you people for tempting me with your talk of pizza and making me crave some kind of delivered food and not the plain noodles or whatever I have at my place.

Wise of you.

Maybe, but sometimes I wish eating books for their knowledge worked as it did in the Bible:

Quote
Ezekiel 3

1 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is offered to you; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat. 3 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it.” Then I ate it; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey.

I'm sorry, Asteriktos.  If I were there, I'd bring you some of my chapati and assorted vegetables.  It's not pizza, but we can make it look like one.  Sorta.

Definitely.  I like reading, so that's not so much of a problem for me, but eating my Greek and Syriac books for lunch would've saved me so much time that would've been better spent buying Latin and Armenian books for dinner.  I have a big mouth for tongues.

I hate national chain pizza, especially with all the amazing pizza here in Buffalo.

I hate when you get a new book in the mail, and you're excited and want to start it right away, but you're already reading a bajillion books and know that if you start a new one you'll probably put one of the old ones on the shelf and never finish it.

Story of my life.  My bookshelves are brimming with un- and half-read books.

Mine too.* E-readers have destroyed me. I can have a book in my hands 5 seconds after I decide I want to read it? Goodbye productivity.

I've found it to be the other way around. I can maintain concentration better on the screen than the printed page. The e-reader, which has no backlighting, is quite restful on the eyes; the Fire can be a bit too much. Still wouldn't want to be without either of them.

I bought an umbrella. I've been trying to live without for years since I'm fairly convinced that the basic function of every umbrella is not to protect from rain but to broke down so that people must buy another one. I hope this one won't get broken so easily.

I bought an umbrella. I've been trying to live without for years since I'm fairly convinced that the basic function of every umbrella is not to protect from rain but to broke down so that people must buy another one. I hope this one won't get broken so easily.

You have discovered and iterated the basic function of not just umbrellas but of virtually every other mechanical product produced for sale in a consumerist society.  Grin

I've sometimes heard stories about various Soviet techonologies that still work after decades. They are probably fairly ineffective and consume heck of a lot energy but at least they still work.

Perhaps there is a warehouse, long-forgotten by time, where there is a treasure trove of secret, Soviet umbrellas; the kind that never broke down, even in the wintry midst of wartime Stalingrad.  Imagine!  It's just waiting to be discovered.

I wouldn't be anyhow suprised if Russia was filled with long-forgotten Soviet everything. AFAIK the USSR produced massive amounts of everything irregardless of whether people wanted it or not.

Technically, it would be the Awakening of the Sleepers by the Power of the Holy Spyware.  Besides, what would be wrong with that??

If you can actually see all the books that you own, you need to buy more asap. Tongue

Did you know that Schwarzenegger sounds exactly like Hitler when speaking?  It's only due to the poor recording quality of the 1930s-40s that we get that annoying sound that Hitler makes in his speeches.

This could be quite amusing, really.

Now I want to go through all his lines and think of Hitler saying them.
