I use to work for UPS and use to wait at a distance with binoculars until the person left to drop off the package.

write on a piece of paper that you have talked to UPS over the phone and they said all you had to do was leave a piece of paper explaining whats going on and they can leave the package with your athority then leave your signature on the piece of paper. They will sign your name and leave the package.

I like to tell people to also put please remove this when you drop off the package.

If the local UPS hub is close to where you live, let them attempt to deliver once, then call 1-800-PICK-UPS, give them the tracking number and ask them to hold it so you can go to the UPS location and sign for in person. I do this all the time.

90 POUNDS!! You said you had a computer built, that sounds like a server. The only heavy parts are usually the power supply and the hard drives. Did you order on with a lot of disk space or multiple video cards?
