My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

risks

I used to read the RISKS digest quite a bit. It details “Risks To The Public In Computers And Related Systems” and that sort of thing. I’ve got one for them. I’ve been using drugstore.com lately, rather than the traditional pharmacy. For the most part it’s quite convenient – you just place your order and a few days later you get your medication.

My problem is that I waited a while before ordering a refill – waited until the day I ran out, in fact. “No biggie,” I figured, “I’ll just overnight it.” Well, unfortunately, overnight shipping does not mean overnight order processing. Sadly it’s been 4 days now, and they still haven’t shipped it. Annoying for me, potentially disastrous for someone more dependent on a medication. I guess there’s still something to be said for good old brick and mortar.
