    You'll be waiting forever
    If you flush with money - order one from CPC and get it tomorrow and when your other one turns up just flog it as new unused

    I've managed to get mine up and running with sabnzbd (for newsgroup downloads) under Raspbian. It sits next to my HomeHub, powered from the USB port. I've got two folders mounted on my home NAS, so I can dump NZB files in one folder, then the Pi does it's stuff and puts the downloads in another folder. Magic! I think it's amazing that something so small as the Pi can handle something like that, especially with the web interface too!

    Only snag is unrar doesn't work too well so sometimes I just end up with a load of RARs to extract myself, but it's pretty cool.

    I've got one which i setup as a VMware View Thin client. Works rather well and is a cheap alternative to the others. Just need to work out some proper cases for them and Job's a goodun sell it for 3 times the price

    Heh - Yesterday was approaching the end of my 12 week leadtime from RS, and yesterday I got an email from `em saying it'll be another 8 weeks minimum... good job I bought one off a colleague at cost who got one early on & used it twice then relegated it to a shelf due to no use for it (!).

    It's currently running as a RAMP server.

    I'll let you know when CPC/Farnell are out of stock again and then you'll be able to re-sell it again

    Or you could donate it to a/your school/young person

    I ordered one on release day from Farnell and it arrived around end of June - just before the Summer holidays. I was all full fuss wanting to play with it and getting annoyed that it wasn't arriving. Then when it arrived I opened the box and put it back after looking at it meaning to use it over the six weeks.

    Ho hum - it's still in the box on the shelf where I left it. Not had the time.
