Jeej! It arrived! pics: https://plus.google.com/photos/11477412 ... 4132295585

Few questions though:


did I miss the update on it having the GPIO-pins already soldered on? Or did you guys decide this behind closed curtains?
On the left hand edge of the board, there is a 4-digit number, mine says 1208. Is this the serial number?

AWESOME!

No idea about the second question, but yep, you missed an update   (to be fair it might have just been a comment on an update)

Don't think it's the serial number - mine also says 1208 (or 8021, depending on which way you hold it )

OK then, for the record: I'm using a takeMS SDHC 16GB class 10 card and it works perfectly!

*cheerfulness*

1208 Looks like a production-week code: (20)12 = year   08 = week number

Most products usually carry this in some form - usually adjacent to the 'serial' number

Mine says

00038 (I think, it"s a bit smudged)

201203170144

EDIT: Ah, you're looking on the top of the board. I'm looking at the white paper sticker on the underside.

Mine's 201203171122.  I wonder what this indicates?  It won't be the time it came off the production line the 1st time round, but maybe when the Ethernet jack was fixed?  Time it was tested in China?  Too early to be anything CE related.

Oh - and the 1st line says SC888 - the same on all boards I've heard.
