Shipping Notifications

gar thought this was worth mentioning said

There was a post last week in the InZinerator thread about the wine arriving without any email shipment notification. Same thing happened to me this morning, when the FedEx guy showed up at my door with a Casemates order, while I was not home. Fortunately, my wife was home to accept the delivery.

Wondering if these are a couple of isolated cases (pun intended) or has something changed in the shipping process and others are having the same experience?
