Rob, I did not try that, I just wanted to order them on CD and find out
where they are at if I could, sounds like your at the mercy of waiting til
they show(or don't).

I've taken to downloading them at home via cable modem to USB and then
FTP'g to the IFS.

Here's a (dumb) question on our new E4A.... is the USB port usable for
anything?

Ok. However, I was asking that if you ordered the ptf's to come to you
electronically instead of on media, and you specified the REORDER(*NO)
if
you find that the download is much better? For example, if you order
the
latest cume, and you already have 80% of the ptf's on that cume, then it

will only download the 20% that you don't have. Which will
significantly
reduce your download time.

And I still think that 15 hours of download beats "5-9 business days"
for
USPS. Heck, in that time the hiper group would be out of date.

I went to this website:

http://www-933.ibm.com/eserver/support/fixes/fixcentral/coermedia/coermedia


You would need to signon with your IBM ID and password.

My email says when they were shipped, no eta on date for delivery.

So, if you do it via USPS does it arrive in less than 15 hours?

When you order ptf's do you select REORDER(*NO)?

I have also had to order PTFs on CDs due to the slow response time of
my
Internet connection. To download the cum and group PTFs I wanted
would
have taken 15+ hours. In talking to the IBM Internet Support Team, I
received this reply:

"If you wish to order CDs I would recommend using the following link:

*http://www-304.ibm.com/jct01004c/systems/support/i/fixes/orderfix.html*
Select the order fixes on media link. This option will check that you
have a valid
maintenance agreement in place. Once your order is placed , you should
receive a note within 24 hours that your order has been shipped. _The
order is _ _
shipped using the USPS and no tracking is available, at this time._ "

I don't know if this is the same place you ordered your PTFs from, but
I
have placed my order and hope to receive the PTFs in the mail soon.
