When will the store reopen and what will the hours be?

I'd like to try one of these.

There was a change of plan. Due to the huge demand, theywill now be sold through RS and Premier Farnell rather than direct through the foundation shop. There are numerous threads about it on the forum. I should warn you though, that there's a long waiting list.

The store on this website is expected to reopen shortly for the sale of RPF merchandise.

Just clicked on the RS link only to read

"RS Online is temporarily unavailable. Our website is currently unavailable to allow us to carry out improvements to the site. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience."
Perhaps they are adding some order links for the Raspberry Pi?

Yep, it is now, but I have a feeling they might have been updating it or something, as it
now says:
"Register here to express an interest in Raspberry PiWe are expecting to receive our first deliveries very shortly, so will be in touch soon with
ordering instructions"I wonder what they mean by shortly'?

RS have no more Pi than Farnell. The first batch of punters have already been contacted and a further 200,000 have expressed an interest so don't imagine that they will suddenly have large stocks to go on sale.

I don't imagine that they will... I was just relaying what RS are currently displaying on their website.

I know. It's just that at every slight change in the situation everyone goes bananas and reads far more into the situation than it warrants. Hundreds of pointless posts get generated; then the trolls come out from their caves and make all their snidey comments.

...and to avoid any trolls, I think we can safely close this thread down now, as it has served its purpose.

Its ok - we've been oiling and polishing the Troll Traps.  We've been relaxed, laid back and lenient to a fault so far, but soon....

No more Mr Nice Guy!!!
