My SWAG arrived - I am no longer one of the Riff-Raff !! ...

As such I think TR should, as part of the new changes, build a Special Room where all the swag-owners can go and discuss the activities of all the riff-raff.

I am bowled over by TechRepublic's (read Sonja's) generosity and as such, now wish to put something back in. I think a V.I.P. room would go down well with some of us, just to keep the others out.

I'm deliberately posting this in the Tech Questions area as the punters in the discussion area can't earn SWAG (much).

So now that we've lost our little bit of TR in the form of the old Blue Box, how's about a special room instead ??

** We could be the SWOTRs - Swag Owners of TechRepublic !

The box shows no damage at all but you're right, it wouldn't take much squashing to bust the mug.<br><br>
What really did it in was the box length, bright orange, "Fragile-Handle with care" label. I think that turns it into a challenge for certain delivery people.

The rubber bands were the easy part.

It was making it look like it was broken that was rough. Looks pretty realistic too doesn't it? <br>

I received an unbroken TR mug early this morning!

I'm making a cup of coffee with it right now. <br><br>
That thing was packed so well I think it could've rolled off of the back of the truck at 55MPH and still have been in fine shape. The large box was full of air bags, bubble wrap and was covered with fragile stickers on four sides of the bright yellow box. It was PACKED! :^0 :^0 <br><br>
I'm officially official. My other mug is holding together just fine and sits on my desk holding the TR flag and pen.
<br><br>
I'm pretty excited. Nice way to start off the day. <br><br>
Excellent job Sonja. Thank you!

You can never use too much bubble wrap

That's what I say, anyway.

I wanted to make sure that your TR coffee mug arrived in one piece! Glad to hear that this time was a success.
<br><br>
You are very welcome!

I've got to tell you, though I'm still hyped that I got my mug, while I was typing my last reply I got an email from my wife that I read after replying here. Apparently she's been selected for lay-off on 9/29.<br><br>
Talk about your quick highs and lows. Dammitall! What a day it's been so far.

Damn. That's a bummer, Ropes. <nt>
