when you hear that this item has to be backordered, it means you're fucked. often it's a smaller piece infrequently needed for a larger thing, but will be critical for your needs. is not being massively shipped to every convenient location near you, may have fallen out of favor over time. comes from like one place far away, and often takes it's sweet time to travel, because the company seems to not care to expedite it. it's like they don't really care about selling it anymore.
we'll have to backorder those cables/batteries/broken antenna piece /whatever. anything proprietary and rare.
