Have I been given the wong (tracking) number here ?

I've ordered a dress on behalf of the wife and it is being made and shipped from the Ukraine. They have given us a tracking number, but I suspect it is an incorrect one: The number supplied starts with RA, then has 9 digits and ends with UA. I've looked at the USPS Track & Confirm page and there is no RA suffix, only RE - and they always end in US, not UA So have I been given bogus info ?

Does an internal GPS device for tracking a laptop exist?

What I'm looking to find out is if there is an internal GPS device which can go in an empty slot in my laptop in order to track it should it be stolen? I found some services here (some links work, some don't), but I think they all use WiFi as a way of tracking, which, correct me if I'm wrong, would be a problem for me in rural parts of Asia.

What would you/do you track in a daily record?

Jumping on the Self-Tracking/Quantified Self bandwagon and looking for suggestions for variables apart from the usual kind (diet, exercise, sleep, time spent online etc.) to track on a daily basis. If you do this, could you share the parameters you like to monitor and record? (Or better yet, share a template for your spreadsheet?!) All suggestions, no matter however subjective, quirky or esoteric are welcome. I will be using the spreadsheet tool in Google Docs. Thanks!

Font Tracking: Publisher vs. Pagemaker Values

I have a MS Publisher Document that I need to change the font tracking on. The change in the tracking must correspond to -50 and -25 tracking settings in PageMaker, but the Publisher expresses tracking values in terms of percentage. Anyone have a guess as to what percentage in Publisher would equal -50 and -25 in Pagemaker?

Gimme 20 more!

Looking for a website to help me, a late thirties male, who wants to get in shape. Not obese by any stretch of the imagination, but not as slim and trim as he and his doctor feels he should be. BMI of about 26. I know the general range I tend to feel best at and in that range I do tend to fall into the healthy BMI range. I’m more concerned with feeling good than with being at the exact right weight to get to the right BMI for my height and age. I want to lose a little weight, trim up, look better, abs of steel, ass to match, etc. [more inside]
