Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

Do you have a direct URL for that?

Call me an idiot, I thought you meant that there was a Farnell site out of Newark,New Jersey... NOT the company "Newark" which I've at least dealt with in the past. Doh.

Ok, now I at least have a working link to an order and stock status page, more than I've seen for it in the past 12 hours. Of course to actually figure that out, I had to go to Hack-a-day.
