Hi all, this is a far fetched question, but I'm hoping that someone here has an idea of what I can do. I shipped some fish out to Spokane, WA from New Berlin, WI Thursday afternoon, using express mail. The package did not arrive. I've contacted the 1800 number and opened a "research" case on it, but haven't heard anything. Today's latest news was nothing new. I'm hoping to try and chase the package down myself, as I or the receiver are willing to drive where ever it is stuck and get it ourselves. [more inside]

What's the fastest and second fastest available service (how long does it take and how much does it cost) for Chinese postal service's EMS express mail service for mailing an ordinary document (2 pages) from Shanghai to London? Thank you very much for any help - I was having trouble finding this online (trying to compare it with DHL/FedEx/UPS ) Thanks!

Last year I cancelled my American Express card after almost 20 years, just before it expired. It just didn't seem worth the annual fee anymore, and it doesn't contribute to your credit score. I then went out of the country for several months. When I got back, I was greeted by a collections agency (Allied Interstate) who told me I owed American Express several hundred dollars, all of which seem to be late fees accrued on the annual fee. I explained the situation to them, and they suggested I contact Amex, which I just did. More details below, but Amex just told me I had to call the collections agency - how can I get them to talk with one another so I can at least talk with someone at Amex about this? [more inside]

Can someone walk me through the presumably simple task of setting up my Imac and airport express so that it is secure. I basically want to be able to do 2 things:
1) listen to my itunes through my stereo system
2) use my iphone in Wi fi mode so i can skype etc
do both as securely as possible , and simultaneously? I am running a Imac with OSX 10.5.8 connected to a cable modem.
Apples instructions leave me confused. So i really need step by step instructions if that isnt too much hassle for someone...

What is the best way to convert prepaid reward credit cards to cash? I have a reward card from American Express and a rebate card through Visa that I would like to convert to cash because spending the precise amount the cards are worth is difficult.

Apple Airport WDS network with two devices: a Extreme base and a relay Express. My Powerbook connects ok. My PCs connect to the Extreme base fine. They can also SEE the Express relay, but they can't connect to it. I think the base and relay have identical configurations so I don't know why. [more inside]

Does anyone know what song is being played in the second half of the trailer for Pineapple Express?
The trippy tune with the girl talk-singing, that starts at about 1:20 in this version:
The song is driving me nuts, I'd love to know who it is.

My outlook express kept suggesting I "compact" deleted messages to save space. I finally acquiesced, and now the messages in my inbox and every deleted message from the last year are missing. Any idea whether they're recoverable?
