Great News on my new Dell Precision 7770

Dell originally told me the ship date would be Oct 25th which was a bummer
Today I got an email telling me the new laptop would ship on Sept 29th

Wow I guess Dells supply chain must have improved

Glad to hear it!  

If I had to guess, I'd say that your mobile workstation was sitting in a shipping container and our logistics team wasn't sure when it would be unloaded, so they put a far-off delivery date,  but in recent weeks the shipping backlog has decreased quite a bit and containers are being unloaded much quicker than before.  So now you get an improved delivery date.  Our supply chain is actually pretty nimble, but because we use the same shipping lanes as everyone else on the planet, we're subject to the same delays.

damn, I think I'm east of the line

ever since becoming a Husker in the fall of 1981, I've been telling folks I was born on the wrong side of the Missouri river

Even Lincoln is east of the line, by 1 degree, 19 minutes, and 16 seconds. Norman is only 16 seconds east of it.
The "89%" that I posted is my typo. It's "80%," of course.
Historically, the dry line was thought to be 100 degrees west longitude. It's the N-S boundary between Oklahoma and Texas, runs through western Kansas, central Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota, and is close to the boundary between Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
And it's EAST of the line!

47.6 + 29.1 = pretty close to 80 right there.

pretty close but not 80

and their line is supposedly east of the mountain time zone line

perhaps they rounded up for effect?

Alabama is in the Central, the line is on the state line, so we're nearly there from here.  Cincy is almost due north of Atlanta and also in the east.

The first railroad to Atlanta (called Terminus at the point) came down from Chattanooga.  Decatur was a fairly thriving town nearby, but the RR ended about 6 miles to the west in the middle of nowhere.  Peachtree Street follows an old Cherokee path near a place called Standing Peachtree roughly on a ridge line going S/N.  It's about three blocks west of us, uphill a bit.  

The country obviously slides pretty far west along the Atlantic coastline relative to NE.
