UPS obsession

So I'm waiting on my new keyboard, checking the UPS site every five minutes and refreshing the tracking status list. Comeon comeon comeon! And I'm thinking: someone needs to write a Google Maps hack to map all of this. I have no idea where Lenexa, KS is--and even if I did, I wouldn't know how far it was from Earth City, MO. Few would.

But then I think: this is too genius of an idea for me to have come up with it first. So I Google ups tracking google maps and immediately find a Greasemonkey user script to map UPS package routes. Nice. Although it would be nicer if it marked arrivals and departures, but I'm sure that's in the works.

But why isn't it making my keyboard travel faster?
