Oh, come on, there's a bit of a difference between "installing" and
"doing your own port"!

And at the end of the flash sale, when there are none left, what
condition would you describe stocks as being in at that time?

I would say the phrase "sold out" covers it rather well.

Can you just go to a website and order one and get it from stock? No?
Then it's sold out. It may come back into stock, sure, but at that
time, it's sold out.

I mean, OK, there will be more, good, glad to hear it, but you can't
just go & buy one, can you?
