Do your packets reach..
for some reason my break is stuck :(
Have your packets arrived???
Packet switching - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia technology (where a message is broken up into 'packets' which are fed down whichever route is most efficient - when they arrive, the message is put together by the receiving node, and everything makes sense).
PS People have no contact with these 'packets', so if the expression 'Have your packets arrived?' refers to this technology, it's a jocular metaphor. It's by no means in common use, but I've heard it more than once, used between computer scientists to mean 'finally got the message' [that's a metaphorical message, of course. ]

You're welcome, and your use of 'absolutely' is fine. I'm glad I guessed right - while I was writing my possible explanation I was beginning to think it was totally improbable.
