I have forwarded this thread to the account memory4teachers (its email address) for a response so I hope there is one forthcoming as 1 year to wait for a 1gb stick is getting rather nuts....

Not being one to let things lie one of my team sent an email to Memory4Teachers to ask where the free pens are........here's their response:
----- Original Message -----
I have been informed that you and your colleagues have not yet received your free memory sticks.
I have checked the database and unfortunately due to human error your educational establishment had been actually marked down as in receipt of your sticks.
For this I do apologise.
I note that there are in fact ? registrations from teachers within your educational establishment.
I can clarify that I will ensure that you do receive your free memory sticks within the next 10 days.
I will send you an email once they are dispatched.
Please also note that we have received an over whelming feedback to this offer and it is taking longer to fully meet the demand.
Once again we are sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope that you will be happier once you have received the goods.
Please contact me at any time.
Well that explains why we haven't got ours........I wonder why no-one else has got theirs!!!!!!!!

Maybe the delivery time is like Duke Nukem Forever?
muppet: what email address did you send to? I've had no response ever.
Just pm'd you.

I gave up waiting for it a long time ago. Been waiting since last year!! Could have walked down there and got it myself in that length of time.
Theres a postal strike you know

I'd heard of this sort of thing somewhere else previously, and was given a link to it by a teacher in one of my primaries earlier in the year. So, set up an email address specifically for that, and nothing else, providing false details other than the schools name and address. Nothing turned up - circa 6 months ago, but nothing else has come through email either. Wasn't sure myself as I'd read this thread then. Still nothing nasty in the email inbox so that can't be too bad.
Just a FYI we got forwarded a email from a member of staff from "freelaptops4schools.co.uk"
Wonder if its the same lot using the details from the teacher previously as the email had his name in it. Notice this lot promise a entry to a compatition each week rather then batches etc. I wonder if they are linked...
Blocked here anyway now.
EDIT: My boss is just reading the site (laughing) and he says they agree to send at most 1 *targeted* email per day! wow thats nice of them, only one per day..... LOL
