Re: Mailserver with Postfix/Dovecot

I want to run a mail server as well, haven't had enough time with my pi to sort it yet, having yet to find a complete install set. I found a post in which a pi was running Citadel, but the repository is missing a couple of files and won't install completely - just don't have the time now to find the...

Re: Free Farnell t-shirt

I didn't get the option to order a T-shirt either, I got my order in at 0814hrs... I think the offer was only made to a short duration of later orders as an 'apology' for not having a website capable of taking the volume of interest... (my Farnell one is a 1212 mfg date).

Re: Email from Farnell

Well, I can"t see my personal mail from work, but my order status at Farnell has now changed to "complete" so my Pi should hopefully be shipped today!

No email from RS though.....

Re: one for sale on Ebay this is wrong as the foundation is loosing out here.

Just looked at the listing, other than the moral issue of selling something like this, given free of charge, for educational value... I'm not sure I'd want to risk £173 quid when the second photograph shows the Pi sittiing on a carpet.  What's the risk of damage due to static discharge???

Looks as though it's more of a confirmation that the mailing list is working than anything else though!
