Well, it took an hour and many, many 'refresh' attempts and opening three seperate 'windows', but I think I finally was able to order the signed limited edition of The Shining from Sub Press!! I have an order confirmation number, so hopefully it went thru. Not happy with how this all went, it was a repeat of when S & S took orders for 11/22/63- that was a fiasco!
Unfortunately, on the receiving end of the order process, it's like being barraged by friendly fire. No matter how you try to prepare for it, the deluge of requests coming in quite often overburden the servers, which is what happened today as well and until SP was able to have their hosting service allocate more bandwidth, it was causing the site to go down.
