My two have just arrived, ordered yesterday :)
CPC is usually next day for me - perhaps I spend too much with them

Except all the deliveries this week have been and gone and no RPi2. CPC says my order has been "fulfilled" which I think means it has been despatched, but it must be coming by horse and cart to take so long especially when taking in a pile of parcels for my next door neighbour today!

Disappointed of Basingstoke. :(

OK James - put 'em up. Are you insulting Basingstoke? Hm? There is lot to be happy about such as, err must be something other than lot of roundabouts and the ongoing roadworks by the M3 junction. I will think of something in a minute.

This is humour by the way in case anyone thinks I am serious but my town is nicknamed "Boringstoke" for good reason.

Those who can't wait can always try ordering from online shops in Belgium or the Netherlands, most have them in stock and on next day delivery.
Ordered two more this week, both were promptly delivered the next day.
No decent RPi 2 cases left in any of the shops though...

There's nothing wrong with the fine Hampshire town that gets a mention in Ruddigore and on page 42 of the paperback edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (first volume of the somewhat mis-named trilogy). Arthur Dent mentions standing on a roundabout in Basingstoke.

It may be called "Boringdeath". It only got really boring after Martine's (aka Wonderland) closed.

We've also got the shortest piece of full standard gauge railway anywhere in the country (possibly the world).

Don't knock it until you've left the M3 at Junction 6 or Junction 7 (which is three roundabouts from my house).

Mad Margaret. It would appear that your characterization of Basingstoke goes back to at least 1887.

Now I am depressed as I used to work on the 14th floor of this place: "Basingstoke's 279' high Skyline Plaza (converted from the former IBM 'Liquorice Allsort' building) is the tallest building between London and New York." although I would have thought the AA tower was taller - where my wife used to work.

There was terror when the fire brigade moved their turntable ladder to Winchester (30 minutes away) as the normal "pump" ladder remaining could only reach the 7th floor - despite the two very tall (by UK standards) buildings in the town.

Meanwhile back at CPC...

A major character in Gilbert & Sullivan's operetta "Ruddigore" (originally "Ruddygore"). She marries the former Bad Baronet, who escaped his fate by locating his long-missing older brother to take the post. (There's a curse involved.) In any case, when Mad Margaret starts to start behaving in an odd way, her husband uses the code word "Basingstoke" to calm her down.

Ruddigore isn't the most popular G&S work (that claim probably goes to "The Mikado"), in part because the run of Mikado was cut short because Ruddigore was ready to go. However, Ruddigore did come very close to causing an international incident when a Paris newspaper took umbrage over a bragging song by one character who more or less claimed that a British Revenue Sloop could have defeated a French Naval Frigate.

Despite lighting many G&S operettas since 1968, I just have never been involved in a production of Ruddigore, hence have never come across it before. You learn something new every day.

I never got above the third floor (4th floor at lunch time) in Alençon House except on the day before IBM closed it when we took a special trip to the top floor. We snagged a few good long abandoned cat5 cables in the last week we were there.

I have to say Farnborough has less going for it than Basingstoke.

still not fixed on international sites :!:
Some webshops just don't understand this:
plugwash wrote: More and more people use the internet on the move these days, and often connect over insecure connections (GSM encryption has been cracked, most public wifi is either unencrypted or running in psk mode with a key that is readilly available to attackers). Plain http makes it trivial for such attackers to sniff passwords and session cookies and hence potentially take over user accounts.

Using https makes it much harder for attackers to do this. Enabling strict transport security and key pinning would make things harder still for the attackers. I don't know if the rapsberry pi foundation have done this or plan to do so.
