I have my Raspberry Pi!
After much cynicism and doubt I'd ever see the mythical beast - it came today! Very excited to get home and have a play
Anybody else got theirs yet?

I should have one in the next few days (or there will be trouble) as cpc have charged me!

Was registering an interest with RS while everybody else was tweeting "RS - How do we buy?"

I got an email a couple of weeks ago saying I could now order it and I did, still waiting on a dispatch email...
