Re: Invitation to order from RS

Wed May 16, 2012 3:55 pm

Just got back home to find a red card from postie. It could be any number of things, but what caught my eye was 27 RS scrawled in the bottom right corner. Got home 1630. Parcel depot shuts - you guessed it - 1630. So I've got to wait until tomorrow to find out what it is. I'd be surprised if it was my Pi, but the RS thing is spooky - probably a coincidence. Doesn't the expectancy mess with your head? :lol:

I've not had a dispatch email, which is why I think it could well be something else.

Got my email last night. Just back from postal depot to collect the package from yesterday. It was something else. The RS meant recorded signed for. :(

But, in the 10 minutes while I was out, having made sure my wife wasn't going out, to avoid another red card fiasco, a box from RS was waiting for me on the stairs when I got back. Yay. (I think the delivery guys know when we're going out and target those times :evil: )

Just booted the Pi and all seems to be good. YAY. :D

And my Pi has arrived too ... YAY! I see it has a sticker on it for the CE mark (on the underside) so for this batch at least the mask hasn't been updated with the mark.

The down side for me is that I have a ton of work to do so playing with my new Pi will have to wait. :(

Just placed my order.
# 86**
(Despatch expected within 3 week(s))

So glad when I saw the mail, thought it was available for immediate dispatch, so disappointed at checkout when it said "within 3 weeks" :(

Received my invitation to order today, great excitement.

However when I clock on the link in the email it can;t find the site.
Is anyone else having problems?

Can browse to the main RS site without a problem

Yes part of their training when they get the job is advanced ninja skills & mind reading for beginners. At least that's what I think as they are extremely stealthy and/or time it exactly when you are unavailable for 30 seconds after waiting in for 2 days in a row

Just got my invitation to order too, but the connection to the site it sends me to just times out :( I think they're teasing us.

This seems to be a fairly common problem, which a lot of customers have experienced before.
It would appear that they just can't cope with the high initial demand, and hopefully if you try again in a few hours time then you will be able to confirm your order details OK.

Good Luck to those lucky ones who have received an email today! :)

Aye, it does seem a bit unhappy. Wonder if its just down to the volume of traffic, it worked eventually with a 3 week dispatch time.

We have success.

Looks like RS are filtering PMTU-discovery packets. Naughty naughty.

Switched to the backup ISP and everything worked fine.

Three weeks to go...
