Slipping Into Something More Comfortable

Send Article to a Friend

When the FedEx delivery truck arrived around 11 AM today with my pre-ordered copy of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard from the Apple Store, I quickly slipped my feet into my trusty new leopard slippers in order to go outside and sign for the box. I learned that Apple had warned FedEx ahead of time to expect a lot of Leopard packages today and that FedEx had been asked to try to deliver them as early as possible. He said that for the Ithaca-based FedEx branch, there were about 150 boxes. (Thanks to Adam for taking my photo.)
