Digging up an old thread but mine arrived this morning (UK).

Couple of quirks I've noticed so far though :(.

The MAC address seems to be random every boot.

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr d6:be:9c:fd:55:df
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr ae:24:79:ad:45:4b

After adding a "hwaddress" entry in /etc/network/interfaces and it's now using a valid and "static" MAC so doesn't jump around my DHCP pool!

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:22:82:72:52:1e

Would be nice to be able to set this permanently at the hardware level so it doesn't get lost with the OS.

Typing "reboot" doesn't work (monitor goes into power save mode, lights go out on the keyboard and network access never returns) which is a big problem IMHO.  I thought it might be power related but even plugging it into a 5V/10A PSU it's still doing the same.

I like the stamp format. More minimalist powerful chips on stamps (maybe with some ram) please, and less chipset boards that try and be entire multimedia stations.  ^-^

For those that haven't seen their blog adding a capacitor+resistor resolves the common issues so far (including my reboot problem).
