Well, my laptop was shipped but it looks like customs has it:
* LOUISVILLE, KY, US 08/23/2006 4:19 P.M. THE SHIPMENT IS BEING HELD BY BROKERAGE FOR REASONS BEYOND UPS' CONTROL
* CHEK LAP KOK, HK 08/23/2006 10:32 P.M. EXPORT SCAN
08/23/2006 10:31 P.M. ORIGIN SCAN
* KOWLOON BAY, HK 08/23/2006 10:01 P.M. PICKUP SCAN
HK 08/23/2006 3:02 A.M. BILLING INFORMATION RECEIVED
I called UPS regarding the ambiguous "THE SHIPMENT IS BEING HELD BY BROKERAGE FOR REASONS BEYOND UPS' CONTROL" exception. Since it was supposed to be delivered to me today, it looks like customs thinks my laptop has SARS or something. There's no telling. Anywho, UPS says delivery can be expected tomorrow before 10am. If so I will be a happy camper and have a new toy to play with this weekend.
