I just got an email from Circuit City saying my 80GB has shipped and should arrive tomorrow. The only thing that sucks is it says signature required, and since I am never home during the day, there is no telling when I will get my hands on it.

Congrats on getting one...depending on where you work, you might have sent it there. Now you need to figure out where you need to drive to pick it up after they leave you a nice little note.

I just got shipping changed to my office. I don't know why I didn't think of that in the first place. I can't wait.

You can always ask UPS/FEDEX to hold shipped items at the shipping hub location for customer pickup. Most of these hubs open at 7am.. and close as late 10pm.

Not sure what your work hours are.. but there should absolutely be a way you can get there at 7am or 10pm and still complete your work schedule. I am never available to sign for packages during the day, but I always call and tell the service to hold the package.. and pick them up a day later.. no problems.

just leave a note taped to the door with your sig and they should leave the box at the door, but if you aren't in a safe area...

Here's what I typically do with UPS (haven't had a fedex package that wasn't just dropped off):

- Get home from work, there's a slip on the door.
- Call the phone number on the back, give the delivery number on the slip to the automated voice. (not the same as the tracking number)
- Tell the automated voice to hold for pickup
- Wait 10-15 mins, get a call from real person, who says "it's available at the warehouse"
- Drive 10 mins to warehouse, pick up item.

Note that you have to make the call before 6 or thereabouts or else it won't be available for pick up until the following day.

At least that's how it works for me with UPS.
