Hello. RS invited me to order a few days ago. I registered my interest on April 18th. Things has changed and can't buy the Raspy. So, if someone is interested in an order code from RS Components, please leave a message. Please, make a little donation to a charity of your choise, let me know and I will send you the order code. Thanks. Stefano

Same with me, I recieved invitation from RS however after getting into the total cost to recieve it necessary equipment, I cannot justify the expense at this time.

Is this poor form to give out our spot in line via this forum? Or is there an official way to relinquish our codes to those ready at this time.

Thank you,

Your code is tied to your email address.. I dont like handing my address out to random people on a forum, particularly if they are going to use it to impersonate me.. :)

Since the system was never designed for passing codes around there is no telling what might happen. All of the updates for a Pi someone else orders with it may come to you and not them. Or it may work out fine - only the developers know!

You can also just not order - that means that your Pi will be allocated to the next person in the queue and every person after you moves one position higher.

Hi

When you order from RS you enter an email address on the order which doesn't have to be the one you registered with. My son expressed an interest but when the time came to order he decided he couldn't afford it. So I placed an order for myself but with my email address instead of his.

However you do need the original email address to use the code in the first place.

Cheers

Paul

I would really love to get a code if someone reading here isn't going to use it.
I live in Denmark, but i don't think that will be a problem?

@dholster
I added you as a friend, so if you still have the code, you can send me a PM.

Thanks in advance!
