Crash recovery mode.
P.S. If what I am suspecting to have happened happened in fact, I am so going to rip a voodoo doll named United States Postal Service into bits and pieces.
P.P.S. Incident confirmed. Dear USPS, you just lost a valuable customer to other couriers. FedEx, UPS, DHL, although they are all expensive, they never failed me like you did. kthxbye.
