I had backordered mine from Robotshop.ca last week and got it yesterday.  It's not an NG but a Decimila (spellling? as I'm at work atm).  It works so far, only got to test the basic blinking light program last night as the 009 zip file would not complete unzip all the directories, I had to manually extract each directory in the structure (this is after d/l twice with no interrupts).  Did not have this problem with other 50+mb zip/tar files.

Weird.  What operating system are you on?  What program were you using to extract the files?

Vista64 - IZarc
Ubuntu Warty - Xarchive

Dual boot so I tried in Ubuntu and had the same problem with both d/l files, could have been just a coincidence that I had 2 corrupt d/l's though.

I got my new arduino today. 0009 expands just fine (mac-intel). However, I am getting a weird problem on sketch upload... (doesn't work)

I'll tinker a bit later..

That's probably because you have the wrong thing selected in the Tools | Serial Port menu.  It should really print a more useful error message, but I needed to get Arduino 0009 out because the Diecimila boards were ready.
