Lots of back-orders...
Has anyone else noticed that suddenly LOTS of things are on back-order? It seems like everywhere I go to try to buy something online these days things are on back-order. In the last 2 months I've had all kinds of items, some related to fish, some not, that were on back-order for more than 2 weeks. Worst of all the websites never seem to inform you that things are on back order until a week after you place the order when you never get a shipping confirmation.
I find it really annoying, but has anyone else had issues with this?

I rarely order on-line...but I imagine due to the economy, no one wants a lot of money tied up in inventory...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

Ordered a hard drive for a laptop a few weeks ago, got a back order notice in email. The day it finally arrived, they sent the wrong drive. Though I can't really complain since they sent the 640gb instead of the 500gb. Not sure if it was an honest mistake on their part or if they sent it as a replacement substitute.
