Has anyone else had issues with buying prc ext. ebooks from Fictionwise?

Hello, has anyone else had issues purchasing books with the prc (mobi?) format from Fictionwise over this weekend? They were kind enough to refund my money very quickly and withdrew the format from the titles of the books. I went over to Books on Board and found that those same titles didn't have mobi/prc format available either. Unfortunately Fictionwise didn't answer my question of whether this format would be available soon for these books. Is this something that happens often or is something up with mobipocket servers in general? Just curious. Thanks.

You could buy in ePub, strip the DRM and convert to Mobipocket using Calibre

I checked and they aren't offered in epub.:< I'd actually read them on another device if they were. They have ereader and microsoft reader. I just found it odd that they were offered originally with all three then prc was withdrawn. Fictionwise is usually pretty good about having either prc or epub.

It said there was an internal server error with Mobipocket and wouldn't go to the download.
