I am placing my US$42,00 in the "Doubtful Debt Reserve" line.

Everytime I inquire RS Components, all I get is "we are finalising the new supply route for Brazilian customers", and to "expect to have some further information for you by early next week".

Three months have passed and nothing concrete happens.

I am not willing to cancel as I do not want to get back to the end of the line (or queue)...

My only option now is to be a good boy, say my prayers every night, and hope for Santa Claus to place my R-Pi under my Christmas Tree... After all, it is only 4 months till then!

Best of luck for you all,

Rafael

Was supposed to be delivered last week but because they don't have the bloody case in stock - and there's no way of changing to either a black or white one, I now have to wait indefinitely for the CLR case to come in!

Interesting. My order number is 118xxx ordered on the 28th. Does this suggest a big jump in the number of orders around that date?

28th July = 118xxx
29th July = 129xxx
30th July = 133xxx

Oh, and I've still heard nothing yet. I'd cancel and go with Farnell again if it wasn't getting reasonably close to the supposed delivery date.

I just got a reply from Mike in re info I sent him from my order in March so they are still working on things.

I suspect that they are all up to their butts in alligators and having trouble finding time to drain the swamp.

I'm also getting the feeling that whoever is in charge of their accounting systems missed school the day the class discussed audit trails.

Yes, exactly. If you check the table in the first post of this thread, you see that between June 19-29, they sent out invitations to order each day that covered about 1-2 weeks of registration time. This at least moved people into firm orders with order numbers that they could keep track of.

Me too. It may be a little frustrating that Farnell has seemly caught up with their backlog, but RS is still within the timeframe they quoted me, so Ill wait out a few more weeks and see what happens.

My back-of-the-envelope calculations say that they may be a little ahead of schedule they set, but dont quote me on that. :) The latest order number that has been delivered that I have heard of is 101xxx. Mine is 124xxx and I have not received anything in the mail, nor an email.

I did think it kind of tacky that the foundation was going to be selling them at Defcon (though they never said that outright - maybe they were just going to sell tshirts?) when there have been loyal fans waiting many months who are still left hanging.

When the foundation have been at events with Pi's to sell they have always been Farnell/element 14 ones. Since that supplier can now normally deliver within a week anyone can get a similar service.

RS are quoting 14 days for refunds for products they charged for weeks or months ago. With your one week delivery from Farnell that is three weeks if they mean calendar days, or four weeks if they mean business days. Add to that Farnell is quoting 3 weeks delivery right now, it goes up to 5-6 weeks.

Regardless there are tens of thousands of people who have been in RS's queue for months because they think the Pi is awesome. Seems insensitive to me. YMMV.

My mistake. That should be June. That's what happens when you rush a post when you're supposed to be working!

I also ordered on 29th June, since I recieved my invite that morning, and I got 121xxx, so I guess there are actually a few thousand orders on that day.

someone posted this on that same day:
Roalush wrote:My friend placed his order half an hour after me and he is about 900 orders after me. Wow! I didn't know that the demand is that high.
So that might explain the 'jump' in order numbers around that day.

Just to show that funny things happen from time time - last Friday 3rd August, I was googleing and saw a sponsored advert for Rpi - I clicked and was taken to Farnell website which said 142 were available to order - I did and it arrived 5 days later on 8th August - how/why I have no idea.

Maybe some sort of experiment ?????

I think Farnell dispatch pi by region. If u are UK or SG, they will dispatch very fast.
I ordered pi at July 30 from Farnell, but I still wait :cry:

While we are waiting our four-number orders, they are reselling it in Russia for 3527.90 rubles ($112 or £71). This morning my friend sent me a link to the terraelectronica.ru shop. 35 items available.
