Check on the Farnell Website - I looked there first to see my order status changing and then went and had a look in my email.
I ordered a second one from Farnell on 3rd March (as a backstop, one of about three as it happens) and that one is firmly stuck on Back Order which is fine.

My Farnell order shipped today. Order date and time was 01/03/2012 16:26, order reference was 16507992. I received the email confirming that delivery would be w/c 21 May on 27 April.

No idea what happened to my RS order, they've gone quiet on me. I'm pretty sure I registered my interest with RS by around 06:02 on 29 February but communications have been intermittent.

As a matter of interest, have all of the original 10,000 boards now been delivered? I am interested to know whether mine is from that first 10,000 batch that had to go back to the factory to have the ethernet socket replaced, or from a follow-on batch.

Looking forward to getting cracking...

Ah, you're right. My Line Status now says "processing". :)

My Farnell order status (ordered 29/02/2012 14:03) was showing as 'Back Order'. This morning it showed 'Processing'. Now it says, wait for it...

'Cancelled'.

I'm a little upset.

The good news!

Your Farnell Order Has Been Shipped. Your Reference: 29/02/2012 14:51

Now the BAD news!!!!

Temporary Authorizations Link to more information in a new browser window.
Trans Date Type Description Amount
05/21/2012 Pending FARNELL INTERNET $61.05

I thought this was going to be delivered at around $40 shipped????? Maybe they just made sure there was enough credit on my card and the actual charge will be around $40???

$40 sounds low. In principle it is meant to be $35 + shipping + taxes.

My order at Farnell is in processing state since 08:09 29th Feb... at least I think. I hope it changes to something more promising soon. My problem is my mail address, which I had to change after I placed my order, because I changed my ISP. I was able to change it on the local Farnell branch page, but only getting "spam" from them. The good mails were coming from the exports.farnell.com, but this one still sends to my cancelled mailbox and I didn't find a way to change this anywhere. Oh well... I'll just sit and wait with my fingers crossed.

My debit card had expired over the (almost) three month lead time on the devices. I had to call farnell directly (08447111111) and put new card details onto their system. The lady informed me that the payment had been taken and I'd receive my slice o' the Pi by the end of the week.

Well my order status has changed from backorder to processing, but still no confirmation email from farnell.
However, in the mean time, I have just received the 'time to order' email from RS. I placed a order and its expected within 3 weeks!
Considering I didn't register an interest until something like the 9th March, I'm happily surprised.

I mentioned this to Farnell U.K. sales this morning and the girl there seemed to think that they were being sent out with the Raspberry Pi's but I told her that I didn't think this was actually happening as no one has reported receiving one yet. It is my guess that they will be shipped out 'en masse' at some later date.
Can I ask which country you are in Texy , the USA (which is my guess), or the UK, as you see to be due to receive your Pi from RS sooner than I would have anticipated!

Just got my "Order Has Been Shipped" email today. Kinda disappointed with the $61 USD pricetag, though... I was expecting it to be around $50, but jeebus. I still have to grab an SD card too... Oh well. I will be uber excited once I get my hands on the Pi!

Don't sorry. The sequence of statuses for mine went as follows:
29/02 to 22/05 - Back Order
22/05 to 22/05 - Processing (during day)
22/05 afternoon - Complete and only then did I get the email.

If you went to Processing today but no further they probably ran out of time.
Check tomorrow, I bet it will go to Completed tomorrow and you'll get an email.

Changed from processing to completed. Does your shipping info display on the farnell page or is it only in the mail? I don't have access to my mail I used when I was ordering. I hope I won't miss out on a Pi for such a stupid thing...
