Re: Just heard...

Just had same email.
I presume it means that they will be getting their 4k+ devices in batches (ie not 10k shipped from China in one big batch) and will be notifying prospective customers in order ... and hopefully getting this email early means I"m in an early batch

Re: Increase number of entries in RSS feed

Now that the forum is running on a more powerful machine ... can you increase the number of entries in RSS feed from 15 (especially as the now busier forum means that stuff disappears from RSS much more quickly)?

Re: How many Rpi's on order?

I went the same route ... registered interest on RS within first few minutes and continued to dig around for more ... with no luck.
By then Farnell was down ... but eventually ordered on Farnell and have 23/4 as projected delivery date - and still not had any email from RS.

This is a great piece of news (video from 2 days ago). Given that someone from TeamSBMC has an alpha board then I"m very hopeful that this means that the info (even if private for now) is in their hands as well.
