I recently placed an order on the Stack Exchange Online Store beta. I received a friendly confirmation email, but no estimate of when my merchandise would arrive or any sort of tracking mechanism. It would be nice if we could be provided with a FedEx or UPS or USPS or whatever you use tracking code so that we could anxiously refresh a webpage hoping that our highly anticipated loot will arrive sooner if we can see where in Tennessee it's sitting on a truck.
