RE: EDP/MF availability
Found it on the MF Customer Service FAQ.
>From their Customer Service pages (including the misspell): "If your order
is expected to be backordered for longer than 60 days, you will recieve a
similar card. You absolutely must return this card with your signature if
you would like to keep your item on backorder."
I've never had an item on backorder for more than 60 days, so definitely
goof is on my part. Unnecessary apology made anyway. ;)

It wasn't the normal backorder notice that we responded to. If an item is
backordered for more than 60 days (I think it was 60 days), they are
(paraphrasing based on my recollection) required by law to cancel the order
unless you give explicit permission to keep the item on order. I can
you the e-mail they sent if you want.
Actually, the e-mail pointed me to a customer service page where I had to
in a customer service request to keep the item on backorder. I never
response to this request so I called them and they told me that they had
received it and it would remain on backorder (it was on backorder since Feb
So, I guess the goof was on your part, eh? That's okay, no apology
