December 6th, 2010: Down at the bottom of this page I link to our World Community Grid page, where a bunch of us use our computer's spare time to work on humanitarian computing (curing cancer, AIDS, etc) - you can sign up here. I mentioned this a lot earlier this year when we became the sixth-largest team on the network, beating out IBM, Slashdot, the entire nation of France, etc! I'm mentioning it again now because, yesterday, our "total work done" number rolled over: together we've done over 1000 years of science. I feel compelled to note that "1000 years of science" is both a great milestone AND a great band name.

December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe. December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January. December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL. December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
