I was trying to be a nice guy ya see..  shipping with UPS to Israel  
was going to be $ 90 or so for a $ 100 item.  I informed him  
repeatedly that if I ship without signature then there is no guarantee  
of delivery.  It didn't show up so he says.  Odd that he was in Israel  
yet he had a .ru email addy.  Picked that up a little late.  Lesson
