Re: simfy on raspberry pi b?

Stefan, I have done some quick research on Simfy with Linux. If you've been using it, you should know that in the past they have stopped supported their own desktop player and then switched to Adobe Air, and last year Adobe Air for Linux was discontinued. I suppose that someone could try and find a ...

Re: Farnell Early March?

Although I ordered before, as in the AM of 29 Feb, I just got mine Friday from Newark to Canada.
You should specify where you are and who you ordered from. I've seen reports from the UK of people who ordered on 3-5 Mar getting theirs over a week before me.

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

Fromagique, Still dismayed at the apparent lack of consistency. I ordered at 8:54am on 29 Feb and have no movement at all. My order was 162195 and this seems to be 8,000+ orders before yours. I only ordered the RPi so it's not like they are waiting for other pieces. I've sent emails to Newark and El...

Re: Any word from Newark (US/Canada)

I probably check 25-30 times a day on the Newark Canada website, just like I did ten seconds before checking this forum. I still have no date at all, just says "back ordered" in both status boxes. Again seems odd that Newark Canada is that different from Newark as they are the same company with just...

Re: Newark charged me $50 and won't ship mine until June 18t

Bircoe,
Thing is that the RPF, RS and Farnell/Newark all said they wouldn't charge customers cards until their item was in stock and ready to ship. These reports seems to be contrary to the original intent.

Any word from Newark (US/Canada)

As Newark seems to be operating completely separate from Farnell, I figure that there should be a separate thread for customers seeking info. We all know that some of the first 4000+ made it to north america, and we also know that many people in the UK and EU are already receiving their RPi from the...

Re: Farnell/CPC - End of June Delivery to CPC even for 29th

Nickorossa, This seems to be an issue for all non-Farnell parts of the Element14 network. I'm no sure how tied in the EU parts of it are, but it seems the further you are away from the head office, the slower things go. And to top if off, the Newark team seem to have the same reaction as the CPC tea...

Re: Any word from Farnell?

I personally have received the generic emails. My order status has shown Backordered since 29 Feb.
I'll keep saying it's rather unfair to have ordered days before some of you but still have no shipping date.

Re: Any word from Farnell?

GrahamC,
I would say you are right but something about Farnell isn't following common sense. There are many of us who ordered on launch day, 29 Feb and still have received any feedback on our orders or even a shipping date.

Re: Any word from Farnell?

You gents should consider yourselves lucky to be receiving your RPi ordered after launch day. Even luckier for those getting more than one! And free shipping...? I personally ordered launch day from Newark Canada. As of today, still "Backordered" and after calling Newark (in Chicago) they still know...
