SORRY -Sold out

Sorry guys, news is out: Farrel is sold out and RS server is down, and probably sold out by the time you read this.

Many thanks to the Raspberry Pi team - let's hope next time distributors will be better prepared. The good news is now they have a precedent. Cynics even say it can't be worse anyway, but I'm on the optimistic side. I'm also delighted for the team. It is a resounding success that should help them tremendously get more backup in the future for the rest of the project.

Big applause for you guys, even though I never managed to get one :-)
