I got on the interested list.  No offer to pre-order as I believe they sold out of the first run. :pissed:

Just kept at it.  Site kept timing out.  I think I managed to get around it by managing to add one to my basket.  Site kept crashing and by time got back in you could only register interest.  But it was still in my basket so ordered it and it said 30 day wait for re-stock.

Lucky git! Where from?

I have been trying since 6:20 this morning...useless.

I am not sure they handled this the right way though...

They either hyped it or they truly failed to understand that 100,000 people trying to buy the pi would crash two websites...

They sold out 10,000 in two hours but they knew pretty well that there are at least 100,000 people interested...

Anyway I am looking forward to one.

And making a case for it ;)

Premier Farnell or RS?

I have tried both but nothing... :(

I am thinking of using it as a media centre :)

Farnell.  RS was on register interest as soon as I tried 10:00 this morning.

RS won't be selling until the end of the week.

Farnell wants to charge a 20 dollar "handling fee".

I'll be waiting (a while) for the stock to hit this side of the pond.

Although, it was fun to follow the twit feed at 0601am GMT this morning and watch as we crippled both farnell and RS with our desparation :).

It hasn't come out yet, but my feeling is that when they decided to go with the distribution partner side, the Raspberry Pi folks didn't quite know what they really were getting.  I would have preferred they just sold the 10,000 form their own shop and had a slower ramp up.  More money to their charity.
