From the thread http://www.raspberrypi.org/for.....as-shipped

I'm seeing orders that were placed after 8 are being shipped, while my order was placed at 7:49. I don't have a shipping notice. I thought it was first come, first serve?

I've sent Farnell an email but haven't heard back yet.

Well mine's 164780XX so if they're sequential I'm 23,000 behind you ...

In that case, they're probably not all that sequential   I can't imagine that many Pi were ordered through Farnell that early (how early did you get your order in?)

The other thing to think about is how many other non-RPi based orders there are spread across that 23,000...

The web server load chart RS published showed that hits on their site quadrupled on 29 February over a typical day"s load, so, there are usually tens (maybe hundreds?) of thousands of orders being placed for non-Pi items on a typical day (possibly worldwide across all of their partners?).

There"s an old Western movie with an appropriate title for this Other Day That Will Live In Infamy, "Bad Day at Black Rock"

Just a thought - check and double check your spam box. I know that RS's email address was blacklisted for a good 24 hours, I cant speak for Farnel however. If its any help, dont bother looking at the status on the farnel site as its not being updated. Mine is showing as on back order despite me having a UPS shipping number.

Thanks, I've been checking my junk email in outlook, but must check my email server and see if anything is lurking there!  Even if I will be in the next wave of deliveries it seems (post by Liz on a different thread) seems to indicate the next 8000 Raspis are already en-route to RS and Farnell and should be here mid week!

My order reference number is 165622xx but I did order it on the 4th March.
Thing is though, the reference number increments for every order that is placed on Farnell and even though the website crashed on Feb 29th , we were having to place orders over the phone.
So I wouldn"t read too much into the difference in the numbers.

Mine is 164622xx successfully order at 11:25 CET on the 29th.

(It was also paid for on that day as Farnell Belgium at the time only accepted bank tranfers)

So, for the order numbers, it seems as though they increment on a global basis, not just country by country.

Should have said that I've not yet received an email to say it's been shipped.

I didn't order mine until 7th March, and my Order Number (placed in the U.K.) is 166593xx so I must be way down the queue!

I am sure it will be worth the wait though, and who knows, I may even receive one from RS Components first!

Hmmm, that's interesting - Mine was ordered 0814, order number 164551xx so not much happened between 0814 and 0819 in Farnell-World then!

Farnell 164527xx 7:13 here, no ETA. So close and so far away...

Guess starting number is 16452000-ish then.
