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.

Both sites work fine from Canada. Put in my "notice of interest" request with both sites. Received notices from Raspberry Pi and RS Components within an hour.

My boss was able to put in his requests as well. As were two other co-workers.

I'd have to say either your ISP is blocking things, or you're purposely screwing things up.
