This RS DesignSpark blog seems to have told some people about the launch through RS 2 days before it was official.

I've got a little story

I registered my interest at the RS website on...

February 28th, 10:22pm UK time

I happened to be browsing the site looking for other items when a banner became visible at the top of the page...I was aware the launch was next day, but thought, ok..while I am here I will register my interest...then I can pay for it tomorrow ..the 29th.

So yes, something stinks here....

P.S. I have not received confirmation email from RS.

Yes, that's the same Gus. Sometimes he comes and trolls here. He's an absolute bundle of joy.
