Hi,

I just can't understand. I made my order at 7h10 ferbruary the 29th, i mean 10 minutes after the lanch, on fr.farnell.com and I just received this email with "we can now confirm that your Raspberry Pi will be delivered by the end of June"

Why the heck my order is process after a lot of other who was made after mine ? Is that what have been annonced ?



Pretty simple really, they are shipping not so much "first come, first served" , instead it's first come, first served with shipping location thrown in. At least you have had an email from them, here in Canada we still have only the August date to look at for shipping.

Apologies for not coming over as a spolit kid, I understand that this probably breaks the forum etiquette.

I ordered as soon as the site would accept my order (the weekend after launch day) and I have had a delivery date for w/c 28/5/2012.

And . . . .  I'm fine with that, apparently there are other people in the world who also want things and I have no automatic right to be before, after or at the same time as them.

Can some people just grow up ?

Had my Farnell email as well w/c 21/5 - ordered late afternoon on Pi day.
Still never had chance to order on RS having registered my interest in opening minutes (delayed by the infamous tweet saying register of interest is the wrong place to be).

I"m happy.

This thread could get very long!

Tend to agree, my post was not a complaint and was just a statement of fact. I'm perfectly fine with it as well, since I'm not in any great hurry to receive mine. I can understand though that others will be getting impatient with the process, even more so if they had a specific need for theirs that was time dependent.

I am guessing that 07/05 emails are going to be the remaning 8000 Pis from the first reworked batch.

And the emails saying 21/05 will be the serial production boards.

I ordered 0814 on the 29th (order #164551xx), delivery in today's email is w/c 7th May.

Rattus - you're order is only 100 or so behind mine so you should expect your Pi in the same week I would have thought.  My order in the Farnell system still shows as 'processing'.

I'm sure you have, but check all of your SPAM filters (everywhere) and check your email is entered correctly on your Farnell account profile... just in case there's a typo!

Yeah, i would have thought Rattus would be 07/05.

I'm in that bunch and you were 3 hours ahead of me if yours is 8.19.

Just received an Email.

Ordered when they sent emails out for people who had registered interest on about 1st April, have been given confirmation that i'd receive the pi before the end of June.

Not to bad considering how many people pre ordered in the first place.

Got that mail, too. But where's the news in that? We've been told that by Farnell some 8 days ago. Did it really take them 8 days to send out the mails??

So, based on the comments on this forum, i am going to make a guess as to what has happened in my case (i may be doing a 2+2=5....)

i ordered at 8:14 on pi launch day (as did a few others) via the fr.farnell.com site.  it would apprear these have been appended to the distribution list rather than merges - so that we are at the end of this list.  I am slightly annoyed that i am in the same place in the queue as someone who registered interest on 1st april....  (no offence intended Beanz).

oh well... i will have to fill my time playing with my new android tablet until the raspberry arrives (never did like fruit that much!

ps - never got offered the t-shirt either.  i'll just buy one from the rasp-pi store when it opens

I've got an 07/05 email and the order time is 08:18

Although I am certain I did the order much earlier, therefore that must be the time that Farnell processed the batch.

Yeah nothing in the spam

I've tried to contact farnell via the website forms - not heard back yet but it's early days on that as I've just done it

I have had an email to my work account for a 2nd one that I had registered an interest in which gives a End of june message [so not completely out of luck]

Seems that Farnell may have messed up the ordering queue. People who ordered before me are getting them the same week as me. Seems a tad unfair to those who expressed early interest or were organised enough to be up early on 29th Feb...but I'm not complaining. I'm just happy to have a rough date that I know will not change again *fingers crossed*
