Guess what came per mail today
Wrong! It was my GRE Powerprep software. Let me contemplate this: today is the 15th of January 2007 and I sat the exam on the first of November 2006. I registered for the test one month prior to the test-day, on the first of October. So the CD was only one and a half months late to reach me before the exam . Strangely, it was delivered by Deutsche Post and its journey apparently took it through Frankfurt. Even more confusing is the French postmark.
 Not that it would have been useful at this time any more.
