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.

I was up at 5:50, refreshing the Raspbery Pi website... As soon as the RS and Farnel web links came up I tried to order from both, but both went down and didn't come back up for an hour... By which time they were obviously sold out ;)

Well, I've given my details... Hopefully I'll get one of the next batch ;)
