Re: Im selling my pi

<t>All I know is that it's a disgrace, that a Raspberry Pi came so early into the hands of someone who would rather sell it for some quick profit than to use it and contribute.<br/> <br/> Also, I find it completely inappropriate that you would advertise it on these forums... it makes you no differen...

I have my PI too! I actually have 2 so if someone wants the 2nd one I am thinking of selling it on ebay.


Cheat the system much? I don't see how someone could have two unless they found a way to get around the rules of one per customer.

Re: Requests for you lucky Pi owners

Just a request, if anyone is in to the kind of thing, can they test the performance of the visualboyadvance package in the debian repository? You will of course need a ROM (Of a game you own of course.)

How does it perform fullscreen? With filters enabled? Is there any tearing?

Re: Post your estimated arrival dates

Checking the order on the site, it says April 3rd, 2012.

Re: Newark Order

I placed my order on March 1st on Newark, and although it originally showed a ship date of May 14th, for some reason after checking the order status within the past few days, I noticed it had been changed to April 2nd.

I'm really hoping that's a good sign.
