        Actually, I still receive the little yellow notices on
occasion. Most of the time though I request that a sender use USPS
as I've had much better luck than with UPS. RPS I've only used for
RMA's to/from IBM because it was their preferred mode of shipment but
I never had any problems with them. I avoid UPS like the plague
normally though. With the monitors that they've trashed, it was
never the picture tube that got busted but the outer casing. The
same with this Mac G3...plenty of styrofoam packing from Apple but
they shattered part of the side panel.
