I have received one UPS package and am currently waiting for two more. After these arrive, I will not be using any supplier that uses UPS.
There is no range of when a package will be delivered. While waiting all day and 3 hours yesterday for UPS to arrive, it is impossible to leave as they can arrive at any time. I called the UPS office, they don’t even know the location of where their trucks are or where the location of a particular package is. The information that the operator had was the same that was on their website. That meant the location of the package is only updated daily.
This is not acceptable in an age of location tracking andÂ smartphones. The service offered by the post office is better. If I’m not at home, a package is left at the nearest post office where I can collect it at a suitable time.
It’s time that UPS (and if other delivery services if they operate on a similar model) to come into the 21st century. They might not have lost a customer today who will insist onÂ suppliers not using them from now on.
I read about an update an update to the Uploadr tool from Flickr. In the past, this tool has been cumbersome and inefficient. However, this new tool is working very well for me so far. I just pointed it at an external drive and it’s working well so far. It is possible to view photos by date uploaded or by date taken which extracts the exif information from the photo.
Unfortunately, I used some terrible photo editing tools in the past and in many photos, that information is wiped.
So now I’m on the hunt for a good tool that can batch update exif date information. So far, apart from a couple of command line options, I haven’t found anything.
The photos are all uploaded to private mode so only you will see them. If your computer or backup option goes wrong, this is one option that can help.
