  • Is it only available in Austria?

    You have to pay for shipping + USB stick with OS preloaded/IP configured + USB power/data cable.

    What's the specs for transfer, then? As I recall, the Pi is hard-pressed to do more than 10 mbit/sec, so do they give 3000 gb/month?

    (edit) Nevermind, read the article, dummy. Sigh.... (/edit)

  • Still waiting my Raspberry Pi to arrive - ordered in June and still nothing much here yet!

    Selling multiple 2000-user GApps :) Shoot me a message to make an offer.

    100Mbit shared / 100Gb Traffic :)

  • I meant you can order from wherever, it wasn't restricted to .at citizens.

    But yeah, only available in the .at DC.

  • @William can we also order a RPi and let it ship to the datacenter?

    I'm sure they would do that. You shouldn't forget: You also have to include a SD-Card/USB-Stick with preconfigured OS+network...

    But anyway: Come on... NL -> AT isn't that far away, you can also ship that on your own :)

    Anycast DNS => DNS4 or Rage4

    I know, was just a question lol

  • @joodle said: @William can we also order a RPi and let it ship to the datacenter?

    Yes - You need to HAVE them write EDIS GmbH on them then AND ship an SD card with the preconfigured OS.

  • What if the SD card is broken down? I have to ship the unit back and replace one then return it to Austria? Maybe they could sell some system SD cards and some USB flash drives for storage space to cover part of their cost...

    Has anyone here already put a Raspberry Pi on colocation at EDIS ? Does it work well ?

    A limitation of Raspberry Pi is the need to reflash the SD card on a PC when upgrading to the next Raspbian major release, and this does not play well with colocation. Raspbian is the Raspberry Pi Debian port, and is pretty complete. Early Raspbian releases had a buggy driver that was causing packet loss at high CPU; this has been fixed on september Raspbian image. I was waiting for this fix before eventually shipping the board. A colocated Raspberry Pi could be a useful small backup server, to avoid storing data on shared disks.

    Nope, that's a limitation of Raspbian.

    (also I am not sure this is really mandatory, you could probably still do apt-get dist-upgrade + some additional stuff manually).

    @William are there lots of people already who colocated rpi with edis?

  • Anyone tried this http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2008 ? Looks pretty good as with 1 Ghz the RPi becomes a bit more usable and could be used to host small sites / forums ?

  • I stupidly forgot to fill in a customs declaration (didn't think I really needed to within the EU), so I think Austrian customs kept mine :-(

  • If you are in the EU there shouldn't be customs involved usually.

  • I wonder for how long will endure a usb thumb drive or a sdcard...

    @rds100 - that's what I thought, but people have since told me I should have still filled in the little green form. Not sure who's right, but it never arrived. So I'm down one RPi, a 32GB SD and a 32GB USB drive :-(

  • Nah, I didn't think it was worth it. Never mind! It's been about three months so I don't think it's coming back.

  • Well, it if can't be delivered to the recipient for any reason it should be returned to the sender. At least that's how the posts work here. Where are you, in which country?

  • LiamLiam Retired Staff

    @rds100 maybe he did not have a return address?

    @robert tried contacting the austrian postal services/customs?

    @Liam Austrian post will not talk to him. He can only talk to his own postal service that he used to send the parcel (Royal Mail or whatever). So he should be contacting Royal Mail and ask them to investigate what happened with his parcel (assuming he is in England).

  • Yeah, I'm in the UK. I doubt I'd get anywhere with the Royal Mail. They either lost it or delivered it to Austria. Either way, I doubt they can find it. It wasn't sent recorded.

  • Austrian post... Wonder what they're like @William :P

    Hope the issue with the lost pi is resolved, thinking about buying two and colocating one with Edis :)

  • I think I put my return address on it, but it's been months now. I think an Austrian customs guy has a new toy :-)

  • @Robert or it's heaped ;)

  • I'm sure one way or another it was my fault, so don't let it put anyone off Colo'ing their Pi!

  • Still you should ask Royal Mail to investigate. At least they can tell you "it was sent to Austria" or "we misplaced it somewhere". Of course they wouldn't admit it, but still... :)

  • Maybe.. But without any tracking information, I'm not sure how they'd know one way or the other.

  • If you still have the payment receipt or whatever you got when you sent it and paid for it...
