Well that was a bloody shambles. Up at 5:45am this morning trying to get my hands on one of these. Announcement was made at 6:00am of where to get one. Somewhere around 6:01am the servers for both seller websites had a fucking stroke and that was that. Tired an grumpy now. Fair play to the manufacturers though, not their fault. But RS Components and Farnell UK should have been prepared. Poor form goofnuggets. Read more at RaspberryPI.org

Got this little beauty in the post this morning, doesn't have a print date on it but it was published by Austin Rogers & Co back in the days when things cost 'ninepence'. So basically it's old as dirt. Some nice alphabets though. Some of the images are on their side, i don't know why this is. I have rotated them several different ways but Blogger wants them to go that way.
Looks like these guys are back with a new website and an overhaul of their paint. I picked up a few cans of the old formula from Graff City ages ago to check it out and the paint quality was pretty good. I liked the way the cans were designed so you could get right in close to the wall without scraping anything, the cans did look pretty janky though and i remember thinking that fatcaps didn't come out all that fat. Still, if the new formula makes it over here and isn't as ridiculously expensive as the picture suggests i'll pick some up for a test.
