  I assume you weren't able to complete the order, calling about it?
The first person I talked to said they were having issues with their
systems when accepting credit card orders, and to try back later.  The
issue is, if you clear your cart or your session times out and clears
the cart, you no longer have a way to place an order.  Judging from
the fact that there wasn't this outcry when they started sending out
codes earlier this week I'm guessing that normally things work fine
for online ordering.  If anyone from the "maemo coupon team" is
reading, I would appreciate some advice on how to work through this
