Anyone get and have a Raspberry Pi running, yet? How long did it take from registration to actual order/delivery/setup? #raspberrypi

I've been on the list for one for what feels like ages (since their announcement), the stores keep sending me updates, but no order links just yet.  Patiently waiting!

Thanks! They're glass micro-injection needles with a dab of Super Glue on the end. The other end is stuck in a piece of clay. As long as the glue doesn't hit the wing hinges or head, they'll inflate.

Story
Tagline
I work with Drosophila, therefore I can say "collect virgins" with a straight face.
Introduction
I run a core facility at Duke University called Model System Genomics that helps labs use Drosophila as a model system for their research.  I also teach a genetics and developmental biology and genomics laboratory courses.  Oh, and some molecular biology, as well.
Bragging rights
For about 2 months I had a top 20 national ranking on the extra missions for Ninja Gaiden Black. God, I loved that game.
