Maybe the cam will show the crazy volume coming in and out of the store. Plus, my package is due to arrive there today - wonder if I can pick it out.

Yes, at the moment I do have too much time on my hands. ...but not as much as Cummings :smiley36: Holy cow, he has a lot of posts.

I'm everywhere, sabwafare? Been too long to remember that cartoon. Not so much time as to watch the webcam much, I've played with it in the past before the board was here and noticed the store and it's arrangement. I'd like to see a webcam of the pool area during a scuba class, complete with audio.

Oh man! you missed it. This was just on the Scubatoys Webcam!!



Apparently the FED-EX Driver tried to cut in on the UPS Driver in the parking lot.

the UPS driver wasn't going to take it and "took out" the FEDEX Truck!



Here's the image from the web-cam!

Now that is funny! The good news is that the cargo compartment looks intact, so my package should be safe. Those FedEx guys should just stay off the road.

Does scubatoy use ups or fedex or both...

Have seen stupid people working at both, but generally fed-ex has been better lately..

The question is, what time does UPS show up at my door with my ST products, lol? It's like Christmas...

I was following the directions of the art director... Here's the story from a different post: http://forum.scubatoys.com/showpost.php?p=28665&postcount=13

Perhaps no excuse - but they wanted the shot to look like more motion... And I hardly ever snag any coral in my pool!

I hate it when photographers or film makers rule out reality and accuracy for visual effect.

I look at her and say "Bubbles? You want friggin' bubbles!?"

I take 2 tanks, snap weight belts on them, put them in the bottom of the pool and crank open the valves, and swim over the bubbles.

Cut! That's a take!

thats awesome.

I have to say that anyone that has had to deal with the corporate side of UPS (not the brown truck drivers) would really hate them.

We learned to refer to their accronym UPS as "Universal Piece of ****"


There is even a website forum where employees and customer vent about the problems they've had dealing with UPS.

It's called United Package Smashers.
