More Musing

I'm bored waiting for my friend to go and return from the States with my latest toy. I'm getting the new Linkstation LS Pro XHL - it's basically a LS Live v3 (Bittorrent model) with a faster CPU (1.2Ghz Kirkwood ARM processor) so should be ideal for usenet downloads and bittorrent. I already posted how to bootstrap this box on NAS-Central forums so I can add IPKG and Optware. Now some waiting!!

Also built a mini ITX rig. Based on Intel's D945GCLF2 mobo - that has an Atom 330 (dual 1.6Ghz). It's also a good board for Amithlon and for Hackintosh and XP and Linux. Yeah, all done already. Looking at a new ITX rig though so this one will be sold.

Oh and my son has taken my MSI Wind clone off my hands, so all mobile browsing is iPhone only.

I therefore NEED some more toys!
