    I'm still sitting at the checkout page, but it won't actually check me out. I wonder if I still have a copy sitting in the basket? Oh well, I don't think this is happening today.

    Someone with deep pockets may have just made them an offer. I'm sure we'll see more copies on ebay soon.

    Which is just terrible. There are enough of us collectors out here who wanted that book to have the book, not to try to make a quick buck, and I fear that's where most of them will end up. I was very unimpressed with the special editions that they put out for "Under the Dome", but this one sounded like it would be a bit better. But I'd still rather have a small press put out the special editions. You get better production, a nice limitations page with numbers, etc.

    FYI, the web site is still not working.

    Did any of you guys have any luck???

    Hey guys, I finally got through only to find out they are having web site problems. I"m shocked!

    Here's the message: "DEAR CUSTOMERS - S&S IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES WITH ITS ECOMMERCE SHOPPING CART. WE ARE WORKING TO FIX THIS PROBLEM AND WILL RESUME SALES OF THE SPECIAL SIGNED EDITION AT 10:30AM EST ON THURSDAY, 11/10/11. WE WILL HONOR ANY ORDERS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PLACED. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE, WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE."

    So we might still have a chance!!!

    After two hours of pure frustration, I was finally able to order a copy, thanks to some of the workarounds the people at TDT.org supplied. My credit card has been charged, but I still don't have a confirmation email.

    The idiots at the IT department at S&S deserve a big phhht!

    Congrats, John. Unfortunately that trick doesn't seem to be working now, probably since they've suspended sales until Thursday.

    Allow me to quote my favorite war-time moralist:

    Spoiler!


    They knew this would happen; if they didn't, they deserved to join the ranks of the unemployed...

    I won't bother with this one, don't have the cash, and it'll be a rat race just to snag a copy...

    Doesn't mean I don't want one though!

    Not only was it delayed, it has now changed to a freakin' lottery! What a pain in the ass these people are.

    Apparently the workaround for last time was simply to order an additional book (anything that was not the SK limited) and add it to your cart. That canceled the attempt to apply the free shipping coupon, which is what was causing the site to hang. I gave up around 10:30, but they honored orders placed up to 12pm, dammit.
