Re: Is pre-kickcstarter direct solicit appropriate here?

Leaving the same reply I've left elsewhere: curious4872: perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my PMs before. We at Raspberry Pi do not support you in starting this Kickstarter (which is against KS and Indiegogo's rules anyway - you're trying to set up a buyers' club). If you do, we will be in touch with...

Re: Raspberry Pi EMC Compliance

My understanding (but please check with someone whose speciality is EMC!) is that yes, unfortunately, you will. (It's the "typical configuration" point; yours is not a typical use case.) I'm firmly of the opinion that the requirements have a chilling effect on entrepreneurship; it'd be less of a pro...

Re: Raspberry Pi EMC Compliance

You'll need to get in touch with RS or Farnell, depending on who manufactured your units. They are all tested, and they are all compliant; the manufacturing organisations have the documentation you need. I should point out that if you are embedding the Raspberry Pi into a device, you are still requi...

Re: Google add a Raspberry Pi device tree to Android repo

WJDK - this article was the first we'd heard of it! (Aside from Dom, who I think actually spotted the new device tree when he was browsing the repo, because that's the sort of thing Dom does.)

Re: Website Tweaks?

Nothing major - certainly not a redesign, although we'll be kicking one off shortly (don't hold your breath - I'd expect the process to take us until Christmas at least). What we're doing at the moment is more in the spirit of continual improvement.

Thank you for the warning, Duh. Please do not revert moderators' edits; your original title was inflammatory (no pun intended). I've reverted your reversion.

Closing duplicate thread.

You can put eyes out with a fork, too; and soldering irons can cause burns. We expect people to use a degree of common sense, and we are firm believers that you don't learn much if wrapped up in too much cotton wool.

I've changed the title of this thread, given that this is a problem with damaged cards and not Pi-specific. It was a bit alarmist.

Re: Shipment schedules(update?)

The plan is to ship to one US and one UK seller every Monday. We may add small shipments in between those if we have capacity; we're also building stock that isn't being sent out immediately while we're doing that.
