    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?

    Me too, at there refreshing the page from 5:50AM, part of the reason I'd given up hope of getting one!

    Daft question, but have you checked your spam? I was lucky, I rarely check my spam folder but an email from my dad hadn't come through so I checked and just so happened to have one from RS with my unique order code in it - placed the order Sunday and got an email just now from Parcel Force saying it's been left with my neighbour.

    I'm going to put Debian on it first to give it a test drive, but an XBMC media centre is my ultimate goal...
