Had mine a couple of weeks, now.

Tried out Debian (wheezy) and OpenELEC. Getting the video and sound options configured in Debian was a bit of a pain. Alsa support is, most definitely "alpha" and exceedingly flaky. Sound via HDMI is very hit-and-miss and there is a lot of noise on the analogue audio out.

Noticed that the Pi seems to mess up HDMI-CEC (SimpLink on LG or Anynet on Samsung). With the Pi plugged in I can't control my surround sound box from the TV (Both LG).

In use its really slow if you are used to a modern(ish) multi core desktop, but that is to be expected.

Now just need a bit of time to start doing some real tinkering.

Mine arrived exactly 20 mins ago, don't know when I will get a chance to play with it, as we have builders, plasterers in all weekend, looks like next weekend, but it just adds to the anticipation, had a look at the T-Shirt LOL, straight to bin.

Retrieved T Shirt from bin on the premise that Ram said "Summer just around the corner". We can only hope!!!!
Have got a Two hour window free of plasterers, so will give it a go and see what it looks like, running Debian, but will probably try other OS's, I have a 32gb card, is this a bit OTT.

Why do you have to baby sit the plasterers? Can't you just sit in another room and bask in all the pi goodness?

The broadband connection, is where the Plasterers are working,
and I have misplaced my Vodafone Dongle, and just at this moment my mother-in-law has just arrived unannounced with
the quote "Whats this mess all about". I feel a few beers are required (+ plus a taxi for the mother in law)

Finally got to try the Raspberry Pi, what a disapointment nothing happened, following the instructions in LFX 159, nothing got as far as "You'll see a red power light next to the USB Connections, and shortly you will see some some flashing green lights appear, (Where???).
Tried re-installing Debian from the website, but no joy,
tomorrow I will visit my local Argos and purchase a 16gb Kingston flash drive, as I find I have more joy with them,
the one I have been trying is a (8gb Sanddisk.)

As always all Help, Ideas, Suggestions always appreciated

There's a row of small LEds from the audio socket to the nearest corner of the board. the power LED is second from the socket (cunningly marked PWR).

If you don't get a red led I say your power supply is insufficient, you should at least get a red led even which no storage attached.

I've used a very old cheap 4gig SD Card and a microSD ( got with my phone ) in an SD adaptor both worked, microSD appears faster.
