“The CPU module is ready. I had thought this would be the slowest part. We actually have all of the electronics done. The issue is the bottom case. In order to make the units fanless, the bottom of the case had to be made from metal instead of plastic. The first metal mold wasn’t as good a fit as we wanted so the bottom was remolded. I am told that on the outside, 20 September is the ship date.

My graphics card died a few days ago, and after going to the stores and getting to know that i would be forced to pay about 200$ for a new one, because it’s a darn good AGP card, and those are out of date by now. I found a better card for 40$ at a local geek =D It’s an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra AGP, and it’s working to perfection after i found out which driver it was that i needed, thanks to our wonderful wiki.
Too bad that suspend stopped working, and as I’m an avid user of that I’m quite unhappy. Hopefully the forum guys will be able to help me with that.
