I have a campus job delivering newspapers, and must keep track of how many were left over from last week as well. The problem has two facets: one, I sometimes forget how many I just picked up less than 5 seconds after picking it up. I normally do not have a problem with this, except with names. Two, I lose the sheets where I record the numbers about one out of every two weeks. [more inside]

I know speaking about AOL is not eCool, but ....it seems that AOL e-mails are delivered more frequently if I'm actually, actively doing something with AOL (e.g., sending e-mails, or using their web browser--which I don't do, but). Am I imagining this, and if not, is there any way to defeat what seems to be AOL's way of managing resources?

I've got a friend from Chicago unexpectedly laid up at George Washington University Hospital in D.C. I'd like to get her something besides flowers, and have it delivered. Any suggestions? While I'll entertain suggestions about interesting gifts, what I'm really wondering about is the delivery aspect. Is there a Kozmo-like service still running in DC? Is there a, I don't know, bookstore that makes house calls? etc. I know I could try to use a taxi/courier service, but that seems like more trouble than it's worth to do remotely.
