I guess I am as well. I see on the "Duplicate USB Drives" thread I 
responded at 7:15 PM yesterday because no one else seemed to be 
responding, but today I received two postings from earlier. One from 
4:16 PM that didn't reach my server until 12:32 AM, and another from 
6:52 PM that didn't reach my server until 1:33 AM. 

So while Jerry is right that there is no guarantee that mail arrives in 
any particular order, when you have multiple messages frequently being 
delayed by many hours, it's a sign that something is wrong.
