Just so I understand, I registered some time ago and have had a couple of e-mails from RS providing updates. Now orders are being taken I assume RS will at some point, send me an E-Mail saying "congratulations you are number xxxxxx and can now order a RPi! Please note the code below when entering your order…….etc".
Currently searching the RS site just takes me back to the "Register Your Interest Page"??
Anyone care to post a different link?
Far too exciting for an old duffer like me.
Yes, you're right - there's the process as I understand it. RS have created a completely separate website for the actual ordering of your Pi, which I presume they'll send out in the converted email. My guess is that they're trying to avoid crashing this new site by preventing several hundred thousand people from trying to get in without a code
While I'm very eager to get a look at the site, I understand the reasoning behind keeping it as private as possible - they struggled as it is to cope with a few hundred people on the site last night - imagine what would happen if someone Slashdotted the link!
My guess is that you can't get onto the site at all without a code (anyone care to confirm? Along with a few screenshots for us code-less losers? )
