Ya, especially if you don't bill until you ship. If you have it all in stock and the shipping is holding you up, get more people to ship... It's not all that hard. Once you have a 6 month backup, you know you can afford to start hiring some additional bodies.
Ugg. I probably will call and cancel if they decide not to ship this time around. This is ridiculous. Dec 4 - Feb 16th, if I don't see it by March 4th, I'll cancel.
