This is interesting for Aussies trying to buy US stuff at US prices instead of Aussie ripoff prices.

The connection with the Australian post office makes me scratch my head and wonder what "big brother" connections there are, but maybe it will actually smooth things over.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

My iPad didn't like your story enough to let me read it. All I got was a header and footer, no content.

RE: Renegade Australians
Australia Post is run more or less as a corporation rather than a government department. Nobody much sends letters any more so they make most of their money delivering parcels bought online. So it makes good business sense for them to facilitate the parcel business like this. There are other companies doing the same thing, so they'll have to have competitive rates to make a success of the venture.
