Yay and Eeek!

I get so-called "Orange Equity" points when I use my mobile phone for outgoing calls. I looked at the catalogue the other day, and discovered that I had enough points to trade in for £25 of amazon.co.uk vouchers. And although amazon may be Evil due to its one-click patent thing and Killing The Independent Bookseller, it's rather nice to get a free £25. I figured along with the £5 of amazon voucher I had left from Christmas, I could get Parappa the Rapper 2 for about £7.50.

But woe! Today my amazon vouchers turned up. And when I logged onto the amazon site to spend them, I got a plaintive message saying:

We're sorry, but our store is closed temporarily. We expect to be back soon. If you would like to be notified when we reopen, please leave your e-mail address below and we will be happy to let you know.
