Fantastic shipping...

I know this is like.. 4 years old but it just came to mind..
4 years ago I ordered a casio em500 pocketpc when it first came out from outpost.com before Fry's took over. It was on a friday morning at 2am. I waited till around 2:45am when I got the confirmation that my order was placed and went to bed. Since the order was over $400, they had upgraded my 2nd day to overnight air fedex. I went to bed at 3am thinking I'll wake up at 11...
At 9:30am, someone rang my door bell with the package in hand! It took 6.5 hours for fedex to deliver a package from across the country into my hands!

That's unreal. Do you think that they might have had a local warehouse?
