I think we've hidden him under the kitchen sink, but he keeps popping out and surprising us from time to time. :D Rattus' description is probably more accurate though.

Oh well. I'll continue hacking about with the TI-Launchpad. Maybe I'll get so fed up with banging my head against a set of registers there that the lead fumes and burned fingers will seem like a good alternative.

Lead fumes? I used unleaded, but the flux fumes, I don't like. (Mask)

I'm hoping this is a Britishism, and the rest of the world is scratching their head wondering what just happened.

I have just received this email from Farnell UK in response to when I could expect delivery of the GertBoard I ordered 08/08/2012 22:58.

"Hi there

At present we are waiting for a concrete date as to when we will be in receipt of the Gert boards. At present we have been told that this will be 65 days.

Many thanks

Michael"

- Geeps, what's the problem with these? Is there any chance Sony can build them instead?

No , I'm not building one as they won't send me the bits...

I wonder if anyone has received a Gertboard kit from Farnell?

is there a reason everyone eagerly waiting for Farnell hasn't just cancelled and ordered from Tandy instead? I really enjoyed assembling and using mine. Why would you wait?

Thought I may as well wait for delivery as Gert had received the "end of the month" advice.
It's going to be a big challenge for me to assemble this...
I think I'll cancel with Farnell and order through Tandy, this delay is beyond a joke.

I sent Element14 an email two days ago and they have not replied. I am not very happy either since it says this on their website:
