Re: Hi 8 Video Cassette Case

I was looking around the house to get ideas.
I found audio cassette cases, playing cards cases and many more. suddenly I thought of Hi 8 Video cassette tapes.
I had one in my hands, then googled it and ended up here.
I think it's a cool way of making Rpi case. It's a bit bigger though.

Re: Is the "invitation to order" order random?!?!

I personally check my spam folder (as a gmail user) daily. I also check the trash folder every 2 days. I have also contacted RS by phone. I only heard and read promises and apologies till I cancelled the order from them. (hopefully I used paypal and not my credit card) I think raspberrypi.org should...

that's why I always pay with paypal when it's available. it gives you 45 days for protection and then you can get a full refund if they don't send the goods.

Re: RS Delivery Sequence?

I don't really care if I get the raspberry from RS. I already received one from my local farnell representative and I expect two more raspberries which I ordered online. The only reason I didn't cancel the order with RS is because I like the box they send. As the hours pass, I am losing the hope to ...

Re: RS Delivery Sequence?

Based on Order Numbers on the RS the sticky, I should be getting my Pi this week. Unlike others, I haven't had any word that they will be delivering it. Are RS still sending out the notifications that one's Pi is with the courier/in the post or do they just turn up? Based on order numbers on the RS...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

I only read promises in my email by RS. If they do not ship my Raspberry today as this is the last date they promised to ship it, I will open a dispute on paypal and get my money back. I am really fed up with them. They act completely unprofessionally. Farnell charged me the day they shipped my rasp...
