    Got mine fired up today - found an old SD card, using my phone charger and plugged it into my main TV at home. Really does take me back; running a computer on a domestic TV, just like the ZX-81 and Spectrums. Stuck the initial Debian Squeeze on initially and got it working, started the GUI and fired up Scratch. My 12 year old daughter has just hijacked it and playing with Scratch. Cool.

    After waiting weeks and weeks and weeks for my invitation to purchase a Raspberry Pi I foolishly assumed that when I got an invite they actually had some to sell me! Seven weeks delivery time. Seven weeks! Needless to say I've cancelled my order as it's basically a complete and utter shambles.

    Been running mine as my new NAS/Web dev server at home for the past month or so, not exactly it's intended purpose but it's chugging along nicely! Had a play with the BETA Fedora image, but it wasn't really stable so I switched over to the Debian image.

    There are hundreds of thousands in people in the queue and only about 90,000 have been made so you'll have made the person who gets your slot very happy

    I ordered mine from RS on friday and was given an 11 week lead time. Have looked at Farnell today and it says they are opening up for general orders on the 5th and have a 4 week lead time. Have not cancelled the order just in case the Farnell site is wrong/optimistic and in the meantime I can play with one borrowed from a guy at work.

    Still no pi
    Even one TA from a one of my schools has got one before me

    If anyone is re-reading my OP and could supply some actual hard data I'd be grateful (but not very hopeful give out reading skills so far )

    The 5 I ordered for my previous school arrived last week... Although apparently when the women rang me I didn't order any powerleads or SD cards!!

    Did it just turn up or did they email you to say it was on its way?
    Si (getting very excited now!)

    I had an email from them to say it had been shipped with Parcel Force using their 24 hour service. It came with a tracking number so you can trace where it is.
