Germen ordering questions
 
I went ahead & ordered The Last Unicorn from Amazon.de and around where the availability is usually listed is (shipping) in 24 Stunden. Wwith the help of my handy German-English dictionary I managed to translate the shipping bit, but when it come to stunden, I'm a litle confused. Stunde apparently means hour, but stunden is listed as maning "grant postponment of."

So does this mean they will ship in 24 hours or it has been postponed 24 hours?

Any help apprecieated; no I do not have the ability to download anything like Babelfish that would help solve this dilema. Thanks!

Just a few words about Amazon.de to enlighten you some more, Merin...

If your order is ready to be dispatched in 24 hours or even if it was postponed for 24 hours, it really doesn't make much of a difference because arrival times of DVDs to the United States from Amazon.de are known to be quite slow. (Usually a minimum of a month's wait as documented by other members on this forum.) So do be patient...your DVD will reach you, but probably not in a very timely fashion.
