It's finally here!

I'd recommend getting your order in early - I have a sense the first batch may not last long.

It was all I could find this morning, but I see now that the full kit is available.

I have one on order with a 29 day lead time. The US price was about $60. Well worth the price when you consider all of the discreet compnents and their costs. The kit saves all of the time to order the individual parts. When compared to similar development boards $60 is a bargan. The whole package including the R Pi computer is only about $100.

Besides, assembling the Gert board is half the fun!

I just looked at the emailed invoice. It will ship from Farnell in the US. They charged me $20 for shipping. That does seem a little high bringing the price to a few cents short of $81.

I'm still a happy camper!

Seems Farnell again kicked me out of their database, so I can't access the manual. Question - is it compatible with the Arduino DE? Does it exist for Raspbian?

According to the manual, a developer working with Gert modified the arduino IDE to work with the R Pi.

I think selling the board not assembled is a disadvantage!
Soldering is easy! I know it and I know how to do it!
But I don't have the equipment to test the board.
If I decide to buy the board I rather buy one on ebay already assembled and tested!

oops yeah, I did intend to state that it was the Australian website I was talking about.

I'm kind of looking forward to assembling it, though I might find something to practice my soldering skills with first.

It's not that complicated TBH. Read the manual and then see.

I don't think it is to do with your other stuff, as I have the same expected date of 08/10/12.

...otherwise the title of this thread is somewhat misleading. Well it already is ;)
Then again you could argue that well it could be here, as in, the foundation, but not there, as in, the hands of the general public 8-)

I'll do that!

I have a afraid of burning any component and having trouble on buy a new one to replace it!
But my soldering station have a temperature regulation.

I still have to decide to buy it or not! :D
