I keep seeing people bandying about email confirmation times as if they are a time stamp. You do realize that the email time can be fairly arbitrary and minutes off, right? If you want to compare whether someone went before or after you, you are really going to need to compare order numbers. (And is it just me, or is Apple counting *down* on order numbers?) I'm not sure that I would advise posting order numbers (as in, I won't be), but it's something to be very much aware of. Yes, e-mail time is a reasonable guide for when you might expect to see your order shipped, but it's nothing more. Edit: And just to be clear, yes, my order is still processing. 12:08 42mm Milanese.
