Thanks, Liz - if it comes earlier that will be great, but I really wasn't complaining. I've still got plenty to do on my wiringPi/armdroid project...

I stumble into down-loadable pdgfiles of the assembly also instruction manuals here:-

It comes with an assembly manual and a user manual (both of the above are direct download links to PDFs), which also act as a pair of teaching guides, bundled with plenty of programs to show you how to put things together.

And a prize for the first person who posts a link to a possible 'Unicorn', talked about but never seen !

Quote from the front cover of the User Manual:-

There is a suite of test / example programs for the Gerboard, written in C, which is freely available at

I placed my order today and estimated delivery date is week commencing 8/10/2012, which is two months. Maybe lots of people are ordering them. Sounds familiar...

I'm not complaining, though - it looks like a very interesting board, and it takes as long as it takes.

Any update on Gertboard shipping times? I have ordered on 10th August.

Not for a while I don't think. I got an estimated delivery date from Farnell of W/C 19/11/2012 :-(

Still, it'll be fun once it does arrive. I was thinking of getting a PiFace in the meantime but they are sold out now too.

Cheers,
jon

It looks like Tandy doesn't ship to the US. Any where to buy them in the US?
