Re: Invitation to order from RS

Yeh, got my invite today

Put my order through and got my order number 92xx. Starting to get excited now but guess I'm going to have to wait a little longer as they are saying delivery within 3 weeks. :o :(

At least It's on the way :D

I would be interested to see what time you all got your registration successful message on pi day.

Re: Raspberry Pi Name

Just been explaining to my wife all about the r-pi and the foundations work.

One question. Why is it called the Raspberry Pi?

I searched the forum and could not find anything but that may have been me.

Thanks

Thanks Gert.

I'll have a look at the thread. Can't wait to get my soldering iron out and teach my lad some basic electronics.

Just need to grab me one of the 10,000 Pi when they are released.

Re: Gertboard

Hi,

It was mentioned a while back that you will be able to purchase gertboard PCB's when the Raspberry Pi is launched.

With that event on the horizon will this still be the case?

Will I be able to purchase a gertboard with my Pi?

Thanks
