Actually I"m increasing growing jealous of those who haven"t heard about the project by now, the ones which will come along in a (few) months time and go, "ooo that"s a neat piece of kit" and simply buy one.
Been watching this project since it first appeared "all that time ago" on the BBC, it"s been a long time now, it"ll be a wonderful day when it arrives. Looking forward to seeing the sale numbers over the next few months, should be quite amazing.

Well, we're getting a foretaste of what will happen over the next few months. We've been here, lurking, arguing and plotting what we're going to do when we finally get a Pi in our sticky little mitts. There's been a massive boost in numbers coming here since mid-December and we're being overwhelmed by questions that were talked to death and sorted out in September/October.
Now I can't call the new members who have joined to find out about Raspberry Pi nitwits, because they're new to the place and they've not discovered the nuances of the search system. But I do wish there was a way to drawing attention to all the threads that deal with issues that have already been done to death. As a minimum, a compact register of all topic headings, alphabetically grouped by forum would be a good way to find similar topics and reduce the repeating cycle we seem to be getting into.
If that was in place and a new member posted a topic about, oh I don't know, using a mini composite monitor for a display for example, then.....
D'you think they'll be here by the 30th?
I'm just a bouncer, splatterers do it with more force.....
