Re: Preorder

<t>My question is, did they halt manufacturing during the testing?  If so, then everyone's delivery date has been pushed back by that time.  But if not, then only those, like myself, who had early dates, mine was Apr 4th, should be effected.  But it is silly to think that a couple weeks of testing w...

That changing voltage shouldn't be a problem for the Pi itself (within reason) as it doesn't actually...
