AAAAGGGH! Got to wonder if we have become that advance so when computer ordering convenience is so blocked by security measures that we must resort to sending forms in by snail mail and hence, leave a paper trail.

On the other hand to affairs today, the wine is quite excellent.....for a less than a $3 bottle.......

......(and to think that I awoke this morning dreaming that I belonged to an MI-5 "police unit" and we were being transferred to Syria).

What's the line? "I think you have been drinking your whiskey from Kentucky."? (2010)

Actually, when I posted that, I had only had one glass or so.

But why is it that for things we ought to be able to easily do as consenting adults it becomes so darn difficult and even worse, apparently for a non intentional reason (as oppose to when they write regulations to discourage people from doing this or that)?

I have no idea what you are talking about.
You couldn't order a computer online?

Why use 10 words to say what you mean when 100 words will do?

As far as the wine goes in most states it's going to be all about the taxes and in the case of my state the union clerks. You can only buy wine and liquor at state owned sores here.

Check out this nonsense:

Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board

Did go back and buy a case of $2.82/bottle Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.

As far as the consumer electronics project goes, it's been put on hold for a day or two, but it does look like there is no way of doing it except by snail mail.

Well, to clarify slightly, let's say I wanted to look at the collective works of Jennifer Ketcham, Claire Evans, Harry Reems, & Linda Lovelace, 4 players in the adult film industry who rather turned their back on it. The modern convenience of electronic ordering does not seem to apply to such subjects.
