I ordered a Panasonic Lumix digicam as an Xmas present in that 'code stack' deal CDiscount were having last month. I ordered on the 14th October,
I really don't like CDiscount's methods of advertising out-of-stock products as in stock, but what are the odds of actually getting this order? If I don't hear anything soon then perhaps it's time to cancel and re-order elsewhere (and pledging never to order from CDiscount again)
Here is what the order tracking stuff looks like in my account:

Around the 26th I sent them an email and got a response saying 'it was out of stock but they are expecting stock very soon' and this was added to the order status:
