Had the email on Friday saying I was in the first batch, not had anything since. Given the issues with the network sockets they may still be waiting to actually get the devices past final QC and into their warehouse before actually promising a shipping date.

I gather they got stopped at Hadrian's Wall. The Scots are demanding supplies of deep fried Mars bars to let them pass.

Mars bars? Surely they demanded something else

I got two bad emails. I registered at 6:17am, after not registering at 6:05am because of notice about RS showing the wrong page from raspberrypi.org

@Bluemerlin, don't kick yourself too hard; I registered before that tweet went out, and I'm not in the first batch. I think it must have been the first one or two minutes that counted.

I think we have narrowed it down to the first 7 seconds.

At 700 per second, if you believe the press, it would only have taken a few seconds for both companies to max out.

Whether the servers melted before or after that is anyone's guess.

I've always taken that to mean 700 connections a second, not purchases....  I'll be very interested in so cold hard data whenever it becomes available.

I suspect it is one of those figures grabbed out of the air.

I just called rs in the uk from sweden to see what was going on. well they sent the "bad" mail to everyone just so we would know they have not forgotten about us. That is why everyone got the "bad" mail but only a selected few get the "good" mail. If you got the good and then bad, don"t care for the bad one, you are still in the first batch.

Thanks, I also received both and the second one got me worried. Anyway I when we can place the order I would be much relieved.

Also I got my registration at 6:00, during the first 30 seconds.

More likely it was grabbed from somebody's RS (components).

I got in I think before 6:01am (GMT) according to my text messages I'd text my other half the word "On"  at 6:01 so I had done it by then, I went right on RS and did it without reading the page though and then was taken aback a bit by the Thanks for your interested page, then I spent a while looking for the right page, but didn't have any problems getting around the site for those first few minutes, think at around 6:07am I started having trouble, I was still looking for the right page as twitter said to do, unknowingly I had obviously already been on it though!

Anyway times are...

Registration on site... 6:01 (for good measure)

RS Confirmation email... 01 March 2012 19:33:55

RS First batch email... 09 March 2012 15:19:49

I haven't heard anything from RS since 04.04.2012. Am I alone in this regard?

Nope – that's me too….  I registered with RS as a fallback for my 29th Feb Farnell Order

Same here. Thanks for registering on 1 March and again on 9 March.  Updates on 15, 23 and 29 March and 4 April. Nothing since.
