Just got this email

Dear Customer

Thank you for joining the Raspberry Pi revolution and registering your interest in Raspberry Pi’s Model B board from RS Components.

We have received extraordinary levels of demand for this product. To help ensure as many people as possible can experience the Raspberry Pi concept, we are limiting boards to one per customer, and we will send you further information on your request in the next seven days. Once we receive the boards into stock, they will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis, in order of when requests were received.

Thank you for your patience; we will be in touch as soon as possible with more details.


RS Components


This is the UK situation with one of the suppliers
I will not be allowed to pre-order for up to 7 days? Shocked

You are not alone.

Regarding the Raspberry Pi, we will be in touch with you as soon as the product becomes available

And the PH page of Farnell requires trade account, so the order page stays frozen.

Only a geek would appreciate it - and I did

That was cool. Very clever. Now we know where "The Matrix" got the inspiration.

Guys
finally managed to order an ARM
- that is some hardware promise at last Laughing

Tommorrow will get an HDMI cable,
some raspberries - my new fruit favourite
and will put Debian on an SD card (to start the bootstrap process)

Do we have a Pussy ISO or other Puppy like start point
created in a virtual ARM? Confused

Otherwise I will have to create my own (not a pretty sight)
as I flap about like a fish out of water . . .

Our Puppy Hacker school is now ahead of the old grammarrains
and I have added us as a major distribution for Rpi - well we are in the future Wink
http://elinux.org/Rpi_Education

OK it has taken me 4 days just to order
- but hopefully I will eventually have two boards - at least.

I am also wondering if a wireless keyboard and mouse is a good idea?

the question is performance/watt

only trouble is performance is hard to measure between different architectures. one may be good at one, the other at another.


I'm guessing that the Pi will be approximately 3.1415926535 times as efficient.

Pi and Pi
as I and I, Lobster Dreadlock and the RaspaFarrians say
Wink

People are selling old cigarette packets on ebay as biodegradable cases.
Others are making cases out of lego or fruit pastille tins.
http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/cases-for-the-raspberry-pi

Rpi foundation will be offering a clear plastic case once in schools
and if they have any sense (and they do) will offer a range of fruity tints (OK maybe just raspberry clear to start with) . . . Smile

I prefer an origami type case, which we can print on card and then lacquer
if requiring any stiffness. Now there is an enterprise for an intrepid Puppy Raspberrian . . . Cool

Stay Frisky
Stay Fruity
