Is there some kind of issue with subscribing to MagPi via selectmagazine.co.uk ?

Tried buying a 12 month subscriptions this morning but payment failed with a 503 error after completely Sage Pay authentication, if I try to recomplete the payment I get a 404 error from the website and the website page for the magazine itself now seems to have vanished.

Following the link from https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/subscribe/ to http://www.selectmagazines.co.uk/produc ... -magazine/ just gives a 404 error

I've spoken to the folks at Select Magazines and they say it's been a "crazy 24 hours" due to demand for issue 57 (which they've now sold out of).

They are hoping to have the subscription page back up sometime on Monday by which time the rush might have died down somewhat ?

I managed to create a subscription on select publications this morning and chose 57 as my starting mag. When I received the confirmation email it said I had subscribed from Issue 36. Of course no way of contacting on Saturday so will have to wait until Monday.

I subscribed on sunday and got the conformation email.
I wonder when I will get my packages.

I subscribed on the 5th. Still no sign of my issue 57 and nothing back from Select Magazines when I emailed them asking for an update. :shock:

I think there has been another production run, which may explain the delay.

I'm betting that the hold up is down to the lack of hardware available.

Google supplied all the HW, so you will have to talk to them about that. I've no idea how many kits they made.

anyone any ideas about the recent subscriptions,
I did one that 'starts at issue 57' as soon as the service came back up but just received issue 58 in the post!

did they make any more 57's?
