    You can forward it for free. When it arrives at home, tell your parents or whoever to write "forward to: 'your address' ", and it will arrive at uni for free.
    I did this with my Natwest railcard and it got lost in the post :mad:

    Was MAG worth paying full price for? Those of you out there who've got it.

    I've got no games left to play, gonna try out the heavy rain demo soon though, could persuade me to buy that I guess.

    I guess you were just unlucky.

    I wasn't always that active on the site, and I wonder how many of yours are from spamming posting in the Tech Society?

    Anyway, who said it was a competition? :p: I just thought it was just a milestone worth recognising... :ninja:

    Hey does anyone know what delivery companies (Not Royal Mail) do when they can't get a signature i.e. there's no-one at home. I just ordered my iPod touch :sogood: at 7PM tonight and it's already been dispatched with a delivery date of tomorrow! I got 2 lectures tomorrow one of which isn't that important but the other is...and knowing my luck it's gonna arrive probable 2 mins after I head out of the door

    Return it to the nearest depot, then probably you'd have to re-arrange delivery.

    They best not

    I'll beat them like a Piñata if they do...especially cos they say any orders after 6PM roll over to the next day or something like that. I bet they think I'll be happy....but I won't be.

    Maybe they'll drop it off at the Royal Mail depot which is like 2 mins walk from my house or is that wishful thinking??

    You can either collect it from the sorting office, have it delivered to your nearest post office for a fee for you to collect, or you can re-arrange delivery for free, over the phone or online. If you re-arrange it they probably won't let you do it for the next day, but from the day after.

    Is there anywhere secure that you could ask them to leave it (with a neighbour, perhaps)? *If* you're comfortable with it being left then you can sign a note and leave it for them; many couriers are happy to act on the basis of a signed note. Otherwise, they'll leave a card to let you know that they tried to deliver and you can arrange for a alternative delivery time.

    Enjoy the iPod when it arrives! :top:

    The chances are stacked against me, 35% chance that I won't be home when the dude comes along...though tbh that's just a rough guess. Unless I had the mean time that they deliver items I can't model it as a Normal Distribution to see what the chances of him delivering it would be while I'm out.
    Hmmm...maybe, just maybe I have spent a little too long on this. Oh well I'll have to hope I'm home while he delivers it cos I don't wanna pay extra! :p:

    :holmes: It's a good idea, however we don't like our next door neighbours (cos she's objected to our kitchen extension which tbh is dumb cos it won't affect her ONE BIT! ) and the other neighbour (who I don't mind really cos they're alright) is never home. Though obviously the people across the road I haven't thought about! :cool: We know one of them well enough so if it does come to that I will indeed do that! And if they don't give me the iPod I'll just kindap of their children, and say you told me to do it.
    Cheers :woo:

    Do you currently use iTunes? If not, it does take a bit of getting used to (I wasn't particularly happy with it at first when I got my Nano), but IMO it's worth it as the players themselves are great.

    I don't like the earphones you get with the Nano, I much prefer the in-ear earphones... Sennheiser CX300 II's ftw! :awesome:
