Next stock date?

Tue May 15, 2012 8:20 pm

I know, im annoying. I checked the front page and peeked at the stickies, don't hate me, it's just easier this way.

I STILL don't have a raspberry pi and I am wondering if there was a firm date on the next supply.

You need to speak to RS or Farnell (Element 14). They are now handling all manufacturing and distribution. Best to call them, by phone.

If it makes you feel any better, RS are just queuing up people for their first big batch - as I registered on the 3rd of March and I've just been sent an invite.

That's a bit strong. Chill-out fella - it's *only* a computer!

Did you actually register on 03-03, or did you register on 02-29 and receive your registration email on 03-03? Most other people reporting RS invites so far seem to have registered in the first few minutes.

It's all a bit hazy now. I concentrated my efforts on Farnell as I have an account with them - it was only later that I cottoned on to RS's requirements - in retrospect I suspect I got my main email address in to the RS database on 'the day'.

I've just phoned CPC (part of farnell) about my order and they've given me a delivery date on 30.7.12

Looks like I'll just have to be patient....

CPC seem to be out of touch with the goings on in Farnell. Jenny and Liz have both stated that ordering through any Farnell group company should be handled the same and shipped from the same queue!

I've been getting similar runarounds by CPC who seem to just throw out some statement on them not being available for another 2 months +. On 4th May they told me end of August and I ordered around 11.15am on 29th Feb.
