Welcome Instapundit Readers!
I have been calling B&H every hour about getting a D200, on the hour since the 15th. Every day I got "they aren't in yet". On Sunday, I got told "they are in the building, but not in our system yet".
I started calling every 20 minutes.
Normally, they answered immediately, and told me not yet. Suddenly at around 4:00 CST, I was on hold for 15 minutes. I knew immediately they were in.
I finally got through, worries the whole time my phone would cut out. But I ordered one. I have been charged, and I have a UPS tracking number, so I assume I am all good. But I will let you all know!
Many people on dp review are up in arms. I think this just shows perserverance on my part :) .
Scoble posts about this issue as well, in particular the parallels of D200 shortages with Xbox shortages.
I just learned my lesson that same day by showing up at 2:30 for the xbox line at best buy, and there were already 30 people in line for the 25 xboxes (Making there at least 5 idiots in that line)
