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.

When I click personal pre-order, I get a list of countries. (http://export.farnell.com/jsp/search/displayProduct.jsp?sku=2081185) Which one did you select? As the European countries listed are mostly East-European, and the site that appears when I click one of those is in a language I cannot read.

(When I try to look at it again... I get the gateway timeout again.)

Edit: I got family and friend who own companies... so it wouldn't be that much of a problem either.
