Re: Keyboard repeating characters

I have a Logitech K260 (wireless keyboard/mouse combo) which until recently worked flawlessly with Raspian until the mid September update. Now I have repeating keys issues. I have a 1A HTC charger powering the pi and a 2.5A powered usb hub, both give the same issue and the dongle itself requires on...

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

Same here... I figured I'd check my order, since they said "end of June" My Order Status now says "Credit Review" and in the order detail, the single line item's Status is "Backordered" with Expected Ship Date of: July 5th. The "Credit Review" status makes some sense, as they wouldn't take a credit ...

Re: My Design - Opinions?

Looks great! Any idea what it would cost to to get a kit to the US? Since the kit pieces are flat, maybe shipping them in a padded envelope wouldn't cost as much as shipping a completed case in a box (?).

... Thanks! - Kayaker

Re: Confusing (conflicting?) Emails from Allied and RS

RS & Allied will be able to answer definitively but as I like a good guess: Have you entered payment details at any time? YES = you have ordered - await delivery. NO = you have not yet ordered, get on with RS activation code before it expires. Hi Nick, thanks for the reply... I did send Allied an e...

Re: A basic acrylic enclosure for developers

I think I'd pay $10 for one but I fear the shipping to the US would probably be as much as the case.  I don't care for the logo... looks a bit creepy.  A script style pi symbol that would look cool.

Re: Post your estimated arrival dates

Still not date for me.  I ordered mine from Allied Electronics (RS Components' US subsidiary) on 2nd March,  but they didn't give me an delivery date. I emailed them over this past weekend politely asking if they had an expected date, but they still haven't replied.  Very frustrating.
