Not finding anything local I ordered a Linksys BEFSR81 8-port router online last night.
Despite being shown as “in stock” on the site when I made the order, when I now use the tracking facility I see “awaiting shipment from supplier”.
If that doesn’t change by tuesday I’ll cancel the order and take my business elsewhere – somewhere who can actually show their proper stock levels online.
My sun is currently running only on it’s first SCSI disk, the second is offline – meaning I no longer have access to my MP3 collection… The horror!
The only thing that I didn’t manage to do was stay awake for the “Make Poverty History” march in my home-city of Edinburgh – I slept in until 6pm, so I completely missed it.
