Hi Matthew,
I'm sorry, but we can't skip the purchase order priority of delivery.  If we did, other customers who've been waiting longer would get shorted.  
Regarding your order, I've just processed it.  Please expect a 4-6 week lead time.  We're into production now so you may actually receive it sooner.

Kind regards,
Sonny K

Also just received a third email from BFL regarding the order and using a RaspberryPi -




I know several customers have plans on using Rasberry to drive the units.  There's no reason for it not to work.

Delivery is 4-6 weeks from the date of payment.





Our cash was taken over two weeks ago now so we could have it within two weeks and hopefully sooner than four weeks now
