Re: Release Day Pool (just for fun)

Just for fun lets have a release day pool thread. There are no prizes other than you are allowed to be smug for a few hours until we all thwap you with a cold wet trout for being a smart alec.

Rules:

1. Post your guess on the day and time (in GMT) that the Raspberry Pi will appear in the store.

2. The closest date & time is the winner.

3. No foundation members or raspberry pi employes are allowed to guess (unless they want to :) )

4. If two people guess the same date and time the one who posted first wins

Why bar them from guessing? If they tell us, then we will finally have a release date!

My guess: December 15, 2pm

Well... part of me wants to guess Christmas day release, but I'll let someone else take that one.

Let's see, assuming they get the beta boards back at the beginning of next week (I don't know this to be true, I'm make a wild guess based on when we know they sent them off and when I hope they get them back)

Then lets say they go crazy and get all the testing done and that nothing needs to be changed by the middle of the following week.

That means they can order the full 10K and leaving another 2 weeks to get them back... huh, okay I am going to make my guess be December the 25 at midnight (so technically at 00:00 on December 26 I suppose)
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)

My guess...
16th December 10:34am
Site will be out for about 12 hours either side and will sell out by 10:35am.

If it gets to the end of Jan and I've managed to get one I'll be happy anyway. Hopefully by then they'll be well on to their 100,000 mark...:)

You guys know that this thread might actually decide the release date?
The more people put January, the more likely it'll be in January.

My guess is 2012.01.03 10:22 (YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM)

Though, I am not so sure on the time of day... thats 4am where I live.

We share the same birthday! 1977 here :)

Okay I am going to take an outrageously optimistic stab in the dark; 1st of December – yes Tomorrow!
