    *Update* What we know is that the 2 distributors underestimated the demand for RP so their sites were swamped apparently (even though they were warned beforehand). RS will be selling the RP, but they have been delayed a couple of days from what we can gather. I think if you register your interest with them you will either be mailed or added to a wait list. I shall see if I can get an answer for that today sometime, but given the mad rush all at RP are having today I wouldn't want to trouble them.
    We will be putting up a post on the front page later today/tonight containing all of the official media packs and flyers as well as the links you will need to know about i.e. the official community forums hosted here and the official forums hosted by RP and the differances between them (we handle the official development forums in conjuction with Frambozenbier and the main RP forums are for news and chat basically).
    Anyway congratulations to all at Raspberry Pi, they've pushed the snowball to the top of the hill, and now they are letting it go. They just have to keep up with it on the way down though

    I might drop a line to RS ... they are only just up the road from me so I'll see if they are selling any over the counter.

    @mhemmings If a woman proposes to me any day with a @Raspberry_Pi I will have to say yes, the wife might not be too happy about it though!

    I've just cheated with the Farnell Site - can't get on the UK one so used one of the others which is working fine.

    I believe RS are waiting for stock and that stock will go to those that registered an interest first, might be quite a while before you can just drop in and pick one up

    Got some feedback from RS.

    You still have to register to express an interest, and they will send out the stock they have to those first. After that they will then sell over the counter but they will get back to me if anything can be arranged collectively.
