>I had a ton of things to rant about, but the one that’s annoying me the most, at the moment is the random delay of my laptop. I’m eagerly awaiting it, as I expect my productivity to rise significantly once I have it up and Ubuntu’d. Anyhow, I went to the dell.ca web page go check on the order status of my laptop (which I’ve been doing at least once a day – order tracking is one of the worlds best inventions, yet also one of the biggest destroyers of productivity ever created) only to find the following message:
Delivery date of your product might have been changed.
This could have been prompted by the following circumstances:
* Mismatch between billing and credit card information.
* A system issue that interrupted the order entry flow
If the above occurred as a result of mismatched billing information, you will be contacted directly by one of our representatives within the next 2-3 business days.
Of course, I haven’t been called, and there is a new order number listed, so I can’t figure out why my order was canceled and restarted. I did a quick search online and discovered a few horror stories of people who’ve had this error just get lost in production limbo, where new order numbers are repeatedly spawned, until the order is finally just terminated. Wonderful.
I guess I’ll just give them a call tomorrow to find out what’s up.
