Rev2 Mounted with P5 & P6 Fitted!

I've managed to get suitable stand offs, feet and Nylon bolts for a Rev2 Pi! I've also fitted P5(On TOP) & P6 and can confirm you can plug in a GPIO cable and an RTC[1] at the same time, though the DSI connector is obscured but was also obscured if the RTC is fitted to P1, though by not quite as much.
I mounted the Pi on a slimline CD Jewel case lid so you can see through it, unfortunately on the photo of the underside its so clear it doesn't seem to be there!
[1] The pin connections on our Real Time Clock will need modifying to work on P5 but the board will be the same size.

We will be stocking suitable spacers, feet, nylon bolts, P5&6 pins etc very soon. They will appear on our RPi page at: http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/rpi

Hello.
I as just wondring, but on the bottom of my raspberry pi, it says 5 of 6, in the pictures in this article, this raspberry pi appears to say something similar. Can you please tell me what this means. And if you are wondring where I obtained my raspberry pi, it was one of the ones that jack lang brought to the coderdojo in ballymaloe. Thanks! :)

Complete speculation but I believe previously they have said that the RPi's are made on sheets of 6 boards, so my guess is it is identifying which part of the sheet you RPi came from.

Mine also says 5 of 6 (far end, right hand side in top picture, for those who like me spent ages looking for it)

Has anyone got different numbers?

Oh ok I never thought of that I did hear something about Sony making them on sheets of six. Thanks for that. :)

If it's to do with which part of the sheet it came from, then out of an admitedly small sample of three, I would have expected different numbers appearing!

In fact my maths says one chance in thirtysix

I thought I had read somewhere that the pins for P5 were intended to be mounted coming out out of the bottom of the board ? Then any codec boards would sit under the PI board.

The silk screen on the board does show "P5" and a rectangle round the pins on the bottom of the board.

Wrong corner of the board! 8-)

By the RJ45 connections

Unless you're going back on-topic. Is that allowed?

Mine says 7 of 9 (resistance is futile)

kidding ... 4 of 6
I now own 2 RPi - does that mean I own a circumference?
