Just read the first edition of the MagPi magazine linked above (good title!).

Shame! They show the JAVA logo above the JAVASCRIPT programming section. Don't they know the difference?

For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was

I've just received a despatch confirmation with a link to the Royal Mail tracking page. But Chromium and Firefox fail to load it, so I'll still expect to get it when I get it :(

Mine arrived a couple of hours ago. You can run whatever distro you like on it, mine is currently using Debian but I have an Arch image too.

I also plan to try Gentoo on it.

A member who received his last week turned up at BradLUG and demonstrated it running various programs yesterday evening. If you hadn't seen the physical device, you would have thought a slightly older computer was driving the projector - partly because the venue has no HDMI and we had to use composite video and partly because of the delay in loading programs.

Delay in Raspberry Pi

Postby Jimmers » Wed Jun 20, 2012 8:01 pm

Had an E-mail from Farnell today "Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances causing a delay in the Supply Chain, we can't send your order just yet, but it will be dispatched the week commencing 02/07/2012".
Me thinks its game of wait and see, if or when.

Got mine!

Postby 2tux-zx7r » Mon Jun 25, 2012 10:22 pm

Got mine over a week ago and finally got to play with it this weekend. SD card all loaded up as per LXF159. Want a case for it and a wireless keyboard and mouse. There is a little wireless qwerty keyboard with touchpad on ebay for £13.39 from Hong Kong I might try.
