It's probably not a good idea to use the Limit Buy option until you really understand how it works.  My guess is that you offered to buy at a price that is so far below the going rate that nobody is interested in selling L$ to you.  The LindeX is like any RL currency exchange.  You are making an offer to buy L$ from other SL residents.  They obviously want yo sell as few L$ as they can for your $, and you want to buy as many L$ as you can.  You have to agree or there's no sale.  The best strategy is to look to see where the greatest dollar volume of pending orders is sitting right now (L$251 / $1 at the moment) and offer a slightly better deal.  In this case, that means offering to buy L$250 or even L$249 for your dollar instead of L$251.  That way, your order will clear before all of those people waiting to get more L$ for their dollars.

For right now, I suggest cancelling your order and placing a brand new one (or simply buying L$ at the Market rate).  When your order is canceled, the $$ that Linden Lab has been holding in escrow for your purchase will be released to your USD balance in the LindeX, where it will be available for the new order.

Incidentally, in case you haven;t already figured it out, it is always wisest to buy and sell in large amounts because each purchase costs you $1.49, no matter how many L$ you buy.  Clearly, buying a small amount makes that $1.49 a higher percentage of your total cost.  Rule of thumb .... buy at least L$5000 at a time.  More, if you can afford it.
