"So send it to your work address and have them take receipt of it and set your downloads to run at night instead of daytime. It really is not that difficult to overcome your two main objections."
My employer won't allow us to have things shipped here, why should they pay for the reception staff to sign for and store my property for me until I collect it?
And downloading overnight would require me to leave my console or pc on overnight which is a waste of power. I put everything to sleep at night, the noise of my PC fans alone would keep me up all night.
"My house has this amazing device installed called a letter box. Google it, I think it's going to be the next big thing."
Yes, and I love receiving those "While you were out" cards when I get home every day. Almost as much as I love having to go collect my ever-so-slightly-thicker-than-the-average-letterbox parcel from the post office depot that closes every day at 7:30 am.
