Yup, I checked too. No go.

The first eBay confirmation page showed at about 7:08, the cart in another 5-6 minutes. Every consecutive checkout step took forever; I have never seen anything like that. By the time I went though PayPal and clicked "Confirm", it was already 7:30 !!!
And, then: I received the notice that there were no more items left.
Now, I am very unhappy about this. If I was not going to get the Touchpads any more, shouldn't I be notified right when I placed the order, at 7:01? Why was I being held at the computer for next half hour? Why did each of the intermediate pages take over 5 minutes to load? Who was able to get there ahead of me and how? Did their pages have some kind of priority?
Not nice. Robert
