My initial "registration of interest" with RS was on 8th March. Following publication of costs including shipping and VAT, saw farnell was cheaper, (not by much, but it all counts!
) and registered an interest with them on the 23rd March. Farnell invited me to place an order at the beginning of April. Free T-shirt thrown in! It arrived the last weekend in June, (after minor panic as I was away for last two weeks and might miss delivery.) Finally had an email from Parcel Force this evening at 19:30, "Your Item is being despatched." Order No. just shy of 78k7.
Dissappointed with delay, as RS have usually been good in past experience, both with personal orders and with orders through work account.
Farnell T-shirt starting to hum a bit now. I should probably take it off and wash it!
. Currently running RiscOs Alpha Distro. It's still a work in progress, but showing promise! When I receive the second one, I'll let my brother and nieces (12&8) have it to play with. He used to write sofware for the Eurocopter Tiger, and has flown in one, (tethered flight 2ft off the ground!) Hope some of the details are useful.
