    Still wondering if I should put another order in with Farnell, just to be sure of getting one.
    I am feeling quite pessimistic about it all. I too sat hitting refresh on both Farnell and RS's sites from the moment the announcement was made, registered my interest with RS as soon as the page came up, only to hear tweeted later by R-Pi "if you're getting the register your interest page, you're looking in the wrong place". I couldn't find any other mention of R-Pi on their site, and people tweeting to ask for the link were denied it.

    The whole launch has been a bit of a shambles... what happened to them being available from the R-Pi store and no pre-orders? We're now all pre-ordering (effectively, as when they "launched" the suppliers didn't actually possess them) from third parties...

    We will be opening up a bespoke Online Raspberry Pi Store for customers to order their Raspberry Pi Model B boards and all associated accessories. The store will be opened up to customers who have registered with RS, in sequence, according to the time that they registered their interest with us.

    So if they had stuck with the original plan of distributing themselves without letting farnell and RS stick their oars in we'd have pi by now.

    Also, they received the first 2,000 from China on Monday? What was the whopping big lie about the distributors having 10,00 last month about then?

    My prediction - RasPi will crash and burn before the year is out.
