Past News

June 2003
  • We've added more shipping options, including various postal services for customers residing in AK, AS, FM, GU, HI, MH, PR, PW, VI, and overseas military locations.  Additionally, the checkout process has been enhanced with an automatic error correction routine, that will pick an available equivalent shipping method, if you select one that isn't available.
  • Our search engine has been redesigned to substantially increase performance.  Also, additional enhancements were made by implementing various caching functions into all areas of the site.
May 2002
  • Added navigation menus and a "View Cart" link, to the top of the site.
  • Corrected the layout of the site for browsers using resolutions > 800 x 600.
January - March 2002
  • Corrected an inaccurate error message regarding the "checksum" of a page, when trying to order certain items.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
  • The graphical navigation buttons have been removed from the left side of our site, and replaced with text style links.  As a result, pages now load substantially faster.
  • Our search engine programming has been redesigned, yeilding a substantial increase in speed and flexibility.
November - December 2001
  • Several internal enhancements have been completed with the Online Catalog shopping cart application.  You will no longer receive messages about an item already existing in your cart, if you add it again.  The quantity will instead be increased.  Additionally, error messages will not be shown if you don't enter a purchase quantity, or enter an invalid one.  You'll simply be shown the page again and allowed to enter a valid quantity.
  • The check out process has been updated as well.  Once you've entered your billing and shipping information correctly, you won't see the Order Form again, unless you specifically request to do so.  This will allow you to easily continue shopping around the site and immediately proceed to the final order submission page, when you're ready.
  • Lastly, the shopping application should now detect if you're using a browser capable of secure connections, and automatically direct you to the secure server when submitting your order.
  • A problem with the "Advanced Search" function removing spaces from the "and Mfg. Part # contains" field has been corrected.
July 2001
  • The Online Catalog Order Form was updated to better assist customers in fixing data entry errors.
  • The Availability section of all item specific pages in the Online Catalog now show "Checking Availability..." for IE users while our warehouses are being queried, then changes to "Availability" after the check has been completed.

October - November 2000
  • Our search engine has been upgraded to allow for more flexible boolean (and / or) searching, simplified in these easy to understand terms: "match exact phrase", "match any of these words", and "match all of these words."  Try it out!
September 2000
  • We've changed our site with a more up-to-date look. The site is now more compatible with older Netscape browsers.
  • A problem with the search engine returning all possible results on one page, for a simple search, has been corrected.
  • Thanks to a lot of work by our purchasing department, we've negotiated better pricing on the majority of the products we carry, and are able to pass these savings on to you!
  • Enjoy free UPS Ground shipping on orders of $550.00 or more! We have also removed the $2.00 handling charge on all domestic orders.
July 2000

June 2000
  • An issue with product specifications being incomplete has been resolved.
  • An issue with the Online Catalog stating that an order couldn't be revised after checking out, when no order was placed, has been corrected.
  • We're currently working on pages for each item, which will display real-time stock, product specifications, and product images on a single page. You can still view the pop-up real-time stock and pop-up specifications windows for items by clicking their item numbers, and the [Specs] links (if available.)
May 2000
  • The Online Catalog has been upgraded to include better navigation, easier searching, and more items.
April 2000

We hope our customers will enjoy this substantial enhancement. We'll be adding estimating for all of the shipping methods we offer as time allows.
  • When submiting your Order Form online, the Online Catalog will no longer go to a separate screen for any mistakes that you've made. The Order Form will automatically reload, with any errors listed at the top.
March 2000
  • Our Search Engine has been improved, to allow searching only within a particular product category, if desired.
  • A formatting error in our real-time stock program was making availability results unreadable for our secondary warehouses, if our primary warehouse server was down, or had shut down for the evening. This has been corrected.
February 2000
  • The Online Catalog ordering system has been upgraded with more shipping options and more information about them. Also, we think the bug which would occasionally cause nothing but a blank page to be displayed after billing and shipping information had been submitted, has finally been fixed. Lastly, billing and shipping information is now displayed on the final page shown, before submitting an order. This will better assist you in verifying your information before submitting an order.
  • You can no longer supply a FedEx account number, without picking a FedEx shipping method.
January 2000
  • IMPORTANT UPDATE: You no longer need to contact us for real-time availability of products in our "alternate" warehouses (our "primary" warehouses have been online since October.) We have incorporated this information into the results obtained, when clicking on a product's "Item Number." (This feature will be in place by Tuesday 1/18/00, by 3:00 PM EST.)
  • IMPORTANT UPDATE: Any specifications we have on products can now be viewed online! You no longer need to call or email us for information we have on the products in the Online Catalog. If specifications are available for an item, you can view them by clicking the "More" link, next to the item description. If there isn't a "More" link, then we don't have any additional information on that item, and you should contact the manufacturer for more information.
  • Due to human error, all pages in the Online Catalog were erased early in the morning, Saturday, 1/8/00. The catalog was successfully regenerated by 1:00PM EST that day.
  • When the Online Catalog is being updated, you'll no longer get an error message saying "The page you requested (page name) is not available." Instead, you'll be told that the catalog is being updated and the page you requested will be available shortly.
  • A small problem with the date format being shown on auto-generated receipts has been corrected.
October - December 1999
  • We've added real time stock checking capabilities to our Online Catalog, for our primary warehouses. You can check real-time stock of an item, by clicking the Item Number. We also have additional warehouses which are not yet available for real-time stock checking, so we urge you to contact us for availability on an item that may appear to be out of stock.
  • Products which are discontinued or phased out, have never been intentionally listed on our site. This has changed and we are now offering these products, provided stock is available. These items are notated with either "(NO RETURNS / PHASED OUT)" or "(NO RETURNS / DISCONTINUED)." If you check stock on any of these items, and none are available, then we've sold out of them and will not be getting any more. They will also be removed from our web site the following day.
  • Product pricing on the website is now updated twice daily, at approximately 5:00 AM EST and again at 12:00 PM EST.
