UPDATE 4/18/12

Hey all, school has been catching up on me these last few days with midterms right around the corner. I haven't been able to check BO. I'm not scamming you guys. Just because I haven't been on for a few days and UPS screwing us doesn't mean I'm a scammer. I just took a look at the UPS tracking. It says "lost package"..wtf???? I'm giving UPS a call after class today when I get home. Crossing my fingers on this. I apologize for the inconvenience of this break. I hope you guys understand that I am in no control of how UPS handles the packages. Neither I, nor my 7 other housemates have received anything from UPS yet. I even taped a sign outside my door saying "UPS please give packages to the leasing office if nobody if home" (yeah I actually did mess up on the sign and said if twice since I was in a rush to catch the bus, but they get the message LOL)

If anything, remember I still do have some of the boxes already. We are just waiting on the last of the boxes. If you guys want, I could break the ones we already have as we see what's up with the last of it. lmk what you guys think. They've just been sitting in my closet this whole time as we waited for the last of it. I'll post a video when I get home tonight after class. You guys can tell me what you want to do.

Midterms? You mean finals.

This break is never going to happen.

My school is based on quarter system, not semester. But regardless, there are midterms (for most classes). My finals aren't until June. I asked Danny to help me out with the UPS as well.

How far away is your UPS? You cant drive there and pick up the boxes?

I've got good feedback on Ebay. Also, I usually host through my own website, but I decided to try hosting through BO. As you can see, having terrible beginner's luck.

1. College kid with no car.
2. I go to school in Davis and the closest UPS center is in Sacramento, which is approximately 15 miles away. If it were closer, I wouldn't mind even biking there..but 15 miles is far without a car.

I understand the no car situation, but you're using this college excuse to the extreme. U have 7 room mates and none have a car? Its a 15 minute drive to pick up the package. There are 30 people waiting on you to break the boxes.

College takes up a lot of time in one's life. My housemates are really busy, like myself. Look at it from their perspective. They are constantly working and/or going to class, attending extracurricular activities e.g. organizations/fraternities, they have homework to do, class to attend, studying, cooking, cleaning, partying, hanging out, volunteering, etc. (Note how sleeping isn't even an option LOL.) Why would they set aside the time to make a trip during a busy schedule (which also costs gas money) just to pick up a package when it is supposed to be delivered? And yes I do understand people are waiting on me and that is why I am trying to work things out with UPS. I've called them several times already and will still call them tonight after my 5:10pm-6:00pm class.

Also, I wanted to use some of my spare time to do something fun. I really enjoy box breaking. I am too poor to afford my own boxes so I just host group breaks. I decided to give up some of my time to host a group break one last time before Spring Quarter-Summer, but it's not going as easy and smoothly as it usually does.

Just for your future information, if you are ever in the neighborhood and are planning a drive..Maybe see a Kings game (unless they move) or something haha. Driving from Davis to Sacramento takes approximately 20-30 minutes, unless it's rush hour (45 minutes). These times are all 1-way. A round trip would take at least double the amount of time.

I agree, break what you have tonight and let us know what boxes are yet to come. It could be weeks before they find it.

Alrighty! By popular demand. We can do tonight then! I will get everything situated and get the room going at 7pm Pacific time.

Btw, I emailed Danny. He said that he will sort things out with UPS. If worse comes to worst, he will send a replacement.


I have 7 out of the 11:

Ultimate
Prizm
Timeless Treasures
Totally Certified
Prestige
Absolute
Limited

This is getting pretty ridiculous. At least post a recap video or scans of the hits...

Sorry about that. I copied it directly. I don't get how that happened. I did the same thing as I did with the links that were posted on the main post of this thread. I tried giving a link quickly during the middle of the break since I saw Evan commented saying he needed the link.

@yoshi and @evan
