You'd think that, living in Urbana, ordering something from a company also here in Urbana would cause the package to go from company to the local UPS depot, and then get sorted onto a local delivery truck.
But no, it instead gets funneled out of Urbana to the huge UPS processing facility near Chicago, where it spent a couple of hours before returning straight back to Urbana. At least this didn't take too long.
(The package was 4GB of memory for my home iMac; I don't have memory squeeze any more and can actually think about running both a Windows and a Linux guest VM at the same time now.)
