I think the idea is 3 to 5 business days. The 15th was a Sunday, which is not a business day. So the clock probably started on the 16th. If you don’t see it ready on Friday, you could email customer support with your order number. Remember that additions to new modules having been released, there was also a new format released (Ultima). Ultima is very computer intensive, which might make your order closer to 5 business days than 3.
When I get impatient for an order, I remind myself that I’ve waited over 10 years for this moment, so a few more days won’t make that much different.
As automation gets better, the processing time might get faster.
This is possible, but there are often a few problems with it. Future can be considered probabilities rather than absolutes. I generally do not look into the future unless I’m looking at my optimum trajectory, which I learned from Ed Dames.
