patience is virtue.. until you don't get one of the first batch.. but stop and think... life will not stop if you don't get one... you will only have to wait another couple of weeks or so for the next batch... as much as I want one, "I will survive!"  :D

We've still got to get past UK Customs yet. The shipment will probably be impounded as not being on the European list of approved food from China.

8+7 err. That's hard I've only got 10 fingers!!!

Hope you washed your hands!

Well, I've got my Pi Shoppe login indelibly marked on the back of my hand, so I won't forget in the heat of the moment and I've practiced accessing my email, the forum and the shoppe from every computing device I use, and I'm checking email frequently.

You know, the waiting IS bad!

The follow-up novel is always more difficult...

It was published before P&P, but begun after P&P!

"" as much as I want one, "I will survive!"  :D""

Oh Yea?

How long befor the next batch? - three weeks?,   FOUR?

You can survive....????

all the interaction on the forums by those privileged few who DO have their Pi's....

reading with envy about the exciting stuff they are doing...

not being a part of the analysis...

Pi envy...

irritability, bad humor, taking to drink, counting the days.... (AGAIN)

the what ifs...

what if the next 10,000 are sold just as quick (and I dont get one!!!)

think of the suicide rate

what if the world comes to an end before then???

actually it has....

no Pi........ I WANT MY PI!   NOW   (if not sooner)

end what ifs

It doesn't bear thinking about - half a million frantic gottahavits impatiently drumming fingers simultaneously, pounding desktops, stamping feet....

seismic detectors reporting from all over the globe

pseunami warnings

emergency shelters

Power suppliers (Russia, Saudi et all) threaten to withold energy until they get theirs

Mos technology claim copyright

Apple sue for... (some infringment... they'll think of something)

The Chinese go into mass production (independantly)

the entire output bought by Coca Cola

By a coke get a Pi....(its the real thing)

WHAT HAVE WE STARTED??????

(Burp.. damned gas)

(TIC)

You mean Liz didn't tell you? They decided to erect a glass cube on her front lawn an get some nutters to pretend to raspberry pi mavens for release day. So far she has 9990 people camped out on the village green waiting for her to say "you can buy your pi"
