Raspberry Pi – shipping delay

Dear customer, Thanks again for your Raspberry Pi order. We are busy working with the suppliers who provide components for your Raspberry Pi to ensure you receive your order as quickly as possible. Since receiving your order, we have been advised that our next batch of approximately 40,000 Raspberry Pi’s will now be arriving during September, with further deliveries expected in October. This delay is due to the very high level of demand on the core Raspberry Pi processor chip. Unfortunately, this means that your order could be delayed by up to 8 weeks, although we are trying to reduce this as much as possible. We have updated the delivery schedule displayed in our FAQ’s and on the Raspberry Pi forum. As soon as we receive confirmation of any improvements from our manufacturers, we will advise you. Please accept our apologies for this delay and be assured we are doing everything we can to ensure the fastest possible delivery of your Raspberry Pi. Yours sincerely, RS Components & Allied Electronics

Strong, Anti-Break RJ45 Connectors

I hate it when the tab on my RJ45 connectors ends up breaking off and then the connector comes unplugged from my computer and I lose internet. I heard this happens a lot to people playing XBOX as well. I searched the internet for strong and anti-breaking RJ45 connectors, ones that would be durable and resilient but the only thing I could find was the ones with little boots that protect them, I believe they are called anti-snag boots. Well, instructables.com has a nice tutorial for how to fix your own RJ45 connectors using two zip ties: You don’t need many tools to be able to fix your RJ45 connectors: You can find the tutorial here. Please let me know if you find another solution to the common RJ 45 problem, possibly some real Strong, Anti-Break RJ45 Connectors. There is also another thing they have posted about protecting the plug with Sugru Ethernet RJ45 Plug Protector: That tutorial can be found here.
