I did finally get through to someone at the number I have earlier, and
sure enough it was a problem with the way their system handles addresses.
I had entered my company address for my shipping address and apparently if
you tried to put both a company name and address in the address field, the
physical address got dropped. Shortening the company name to leave room
for the address seemed to work and I was told that to expect my pc
sometime between the end of Jan and beginning of Feb.
