Yeah stuff is random at times. They likely loaded it onto a plane that ended up in Victoria and will now be trucked across the ferry to you 😭

I have had stuff go from Ontario to Vancouver then Calgary then on a truck back to BC. Like WTF people.

Maybe this is why we have such expensive shipping.
Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if such inefficiencies are a large part of the reason for the cost of shipping.

As for the discrepancies, sending it to Victoria isn't the only one..... notice how the Amazon tracking says the package departed their facility in Mount Hope, ON, yet the C.P. tracking says the origin was Richmond, BC..... that, and if you look right below the blue line, at the top of the C.P. tracking, the dates are kind of interesting. :rolleyes: (n)

Heh, I guess Canada Post is just messed up nation-wide then...

On Dec 4 it was at the usual place where it would then say "out for delivery" as the Scarborough depot is the closest to me. Instead they decided to send it out to Oshawa where it's remained now...

Thankfully I don't need this order at the moment as it's just some cables, but it will be funny if the SFP modules from China arrive before this does.

Bought most of my water cooling parts from China, and all of them either arrived or will be delivered the coming week, except for the tubes which has been setting at the customs for two weeks going into third week... damn it

The tracking system finally broke down completely. It's now throwing an error out (rather than seeming to be one week out on it's expected delivery date).

Drivers who think are driving a high end vehicle an don't have to turn on lights and drive only with DSL on and no marker lights on, cause their dash is lit up. Geeeish read the owners manual before you get plowed

After Sept 2021, it will be law in Canada that either the headlights turn on automatically @ night, or dash lights are only on when the headlights are turned on.

I wonder how idiot proof it will be. Right now even though you have automatic headlights you can turn it off. See it almost every day on vehicles I know have that feature standard yet the dumb dumbs have it OFF and do it manually. Which is code for they never turn them on since they assume its on.

I guess if the dash stays dark they will maybe clue in. Personally think it needs a beeper like seatbelts over x speed. Who am i kidding just use their phone flashlights and think I fuse blew :cautious:
