You can't even register for the RS Components site with a non-UK address... so I dunno...

Farnell has an 'export' site, that seems alright, no idea what shipping will cost. Actually clicking on the 'Preorder' button just gives an error every time though.

I wish I had a screenshot of the Raspberry Pi guys smuggly bragging how they were 'totally aware' what the load would be like and had it all figured out.

I'm glad I only had to stay up to midnight here, what a waste of time.

Sounds like anyone in the US is just screwed. Even when Farnell's 'export' site finally comes back, who knows what shipping will cost, usually with regular electronics component distributors they really screw you. Guess we'll have to see how much they cost on ebay, (my guess is at least $100), or when the second batch becomes available.

btw, Farnell's US branch (both are owned by element14 or something) is Newark. But it's not on Newark's site.

Twitter is saying Farnell may aleady be sold out, but I can't imagine how that's possible since the site was dead in less than a minute.
