| Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) started shipping a Linux-compatible
| single-board computer (SBC) that adheres to the VPX military/aerospace
| form-factor standard. The XPedite7170 is equipped with a 45nm Intel "Penryn"
| processor clocked up to 1.86GHz, and offers USB, gigabit Ethernet, serial,
| and SATA interfaces.

| One of my favorite computer stories is about my first web server. I had
| mentioned it previously, but I’ll provide a quick recap here. Back in the
| day, I put together a Linux web server using a 486-DX2 box I had lying
| around. Aside from being impressed that this “Linux thing” actually worked, I
| was impressed with the fact that a lowly x86 box could do a great job serving
| web pages. Of course, back then web pages were basic HTML 1.0, but compared
| to other more expensive UNIX servers this system was a real bargain.
