Win 7 support is on its last year.

Do note, however, that it is mainly the future security that will suffer. If you have a machine that never uses Internet, you will still have a good operating system. Same as for XP. A secondary problem is that new applications, or updates to existing applications, may be for Win 10 only.

There are both pro & con aspects within the article.

MS still has a free upgrade to Windows 10. They don’t advertise it. I found the legit link to the MS site through CNET.com...it uses the MS media creation tool.

Thanks Forest Dweller..... Windows 7 loses support in a couple of weeks (Jan 15, 2020).

We have been having the PO Box issue for decades now. Why can't the PO do something to solve this nightmare (Yes, I realize what I am asking from the local service dept at the PO). It shouldn't take a fleet of people and the luck of Midas to just get a simple package delivered up here these days. Even better when physical is BBC and PO is BBL. Pretty much guarantee nothing is going to make it through.

Check with both Post Offices in BBL in how to deal with Amazon packages. Some people in BBC put the PO's street address and/ or General Delivery as their address. If you do that, you have to go to the PO to pick up packages.

You may have to do that anyway. I have Amazon Prime, and my file said use UPS only. That didn't work. Amazon still sent nearly all my packages to the PO.

The ones that came UPS were delayed up to two weeks. Their system doesn't recognize my address, so it has to go on the truck with the driver that lives up here, and knows my house. He was off work for awhile, so that may have been part of the problem.

Though from what I heard, I don't think it was very cost effective.

Side note: ALL our mail goes to home addy with the #007(example). USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc.
Amazon & other shippers have 'learned' who we are. Sometimes Amazon/etc sends to the PO box, if it's small or convenient.

Benny, any w33d abatement letter yet? Neighbor below us has a 15th due date.

No notice for US yet...

Dreamweaver, if you do not get home mail, USPS won't do home delivery. But, PO BOX only. Get to know your postmaster, add an apartment number to your home address,
Example:
123 Main St #007
The 007 would be your PO BOX. Even though physical address they do not deliver to, the apt # flagging could be used, the postmaster/crew working would interpret, hey that's our zip/registered home address. Place it in box 007.

Logistics up here takes some finagaling..

Not sure for Moonridge Dreamweaver, if it comes UPS or Fedex definitely, USPS I'm not sure. Do you have a mailbox/cluster to pick up your mail? USPS does deliver to my house in Bear City, for what it's worth.

Part time resident question: Does the USPS deliver Amazon packages to the street address in Moonridge? If not, and I do not have a PO Box, any tips on how to pick it up?
