Re: RS & Allied Update #4 (10th Oct)

I cancelled on the 1st of September due to the delay being placed into mid October and they still haven't managed to ship the Pi's for my order number. Wow, just cancel with RS people. They don't even deserve to be in business, and the RPiF should feel ashamed that they haven't cancelled their contr...

Re: Latest Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

I should not have said that should I now no one will quit Haha. It's ok. I've quit. I'm happy you'll get closer to getting your device because of it. Luckily I have till Summer Term to assess what we plan to do for Year 6 programming, so I'm guessing Scratch on standard Atom based machines is in th...

Re: Latest Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

If I were part of the management of The RPi Foundation I would be furious with this situation, as this is surely knocking the ambition of the device and it looks bad on them. I was looking at ordering a large number of devices for 10 schools, and this now 6 month delay between registering my interes...

Re: Invitation to order from RS

Registered by interest 23/04 which means I should've had my order email yesterday, yet I've received nothing. So two months of waiting just to order and when I do get to, three months to wait for the device. You know, there is only so much good will this project can survive on before people start as...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied
