Wow. . .those boards are niiiiice.

AFAIK, first ones I've seen with gigabit NICs.

Not quite sure what this means on the liantec site:

"Flash memory capacity up to 2 GBytes (and beyond)"

I wish vendors would say "Type I, II" etc with CF cards. . that is 
something of the standard, AFAIK.

And the video capture modules are very cool, esp with 30 fps.

Me, I've been playing with Alix's for a while from pcengines.ch.  Pascal 
even donated one for the con last time.
