For the first time ever, I haven't received the iTunes code in my e-mail within ten minutes. It's been almost an hour and a half since my order was placed. I know the eBay listing says it can take up to 4 hours for the code to arrive, but I've never seen it take longer than 10 minutes. Maybe they were hit by that Azure outage that occurred about the same time I was placing my order.
