Yeah the new page 5 and 6 are the bomb. I'm still laughing

Time now to figure out all the riddles to finally know what Xena is...

!-- Hmm? Still here? --

!-- Oh well, as we're talking about movies, have you seen Avatar yet? I haven't. Been looking forward to it a while, but things keep getting in the way. --

!-- You know, things like this web site. It's not easy thinking up puzzles to keep you lot amused, you know! --

!-- I was going to go yesterday. Had it all planned, trip to the cinema with my girlfriend. Unfortunately she wasn't feeling too well, so we had to cancel. --

!-- Ah, she's feeling much better. Looks like we're on for the cinema tomorrow. That's good. -->

!-- Okay, okay. You want something more solid? Hrm. I can't really say much here. So let me just address a few rumours. No, you haven't seen this motherboard before. Yes, it's a desktop. No, the A-EON partners didn't design the Nemo board in their garages, and no it's not an evaluation board! Goodness. It was designed by a highly experienced design team to A-EON's specifications. Yes, it's high-end hardware. No, it doesn't have the number of cores you are thinking of. Whatever number you are thinking of. At least, not necessarily. No, we don't have a release date. Yes, it will be fairly soon. Yes, the software team does have functioning boards to work on already. Yes, it is the most powerful AmigaOS hardware ever. By a big margin. I did say high-end. Yes, it will come with a case. It's a computer we're making, not just a motherboard. Yes, Nemo IS just the start. --

!-- ... --

!-- What? What now? Not obscure enough? --

!-- Sigh... --

!-- Well people have been asking for some solid info. A joke can only go so far, and we will be revealing all we can currently reveal tomorrow. --

!-- Anyway, what about that thing with the number of cores? Come on! That was pretty obscure. --

!-- Look, just go back a page, look at the source there. Far more fun. Solve that charade riddle and you'll know a lot more about Xena. --

!-- And with that, I am gone. Good luck, have fun! --

@mingle

New high-end hardware - shame no release date yet though - would be good to be able to purchase at the end of the PR fever.

Sounds like an FPGA to accelerate arbitrary processes in hardware. Not a new idea but there aren't any desktop machines using it. There are tons of papers on stuff that can be sped up dramatically like this. I guess this explains why they put an FPGA on the SAM now. We'll see if I'm right in due time. It'd be interesting to see how you'd program the FPGA if I am, most tools are on Windows and Linux x86 only.

FPGA as a programmable custom chipset? Smells like something Individual computers might be involved in (an incarnation of the C=One?)

Jeri Ellsworth could be the Amigan's pinup once again perhaps?

You need to replace the HTML uncomment tags to display the info.

To follow, begin where Nemo entered into a rage.
Then add to that what the Phoenicians used to see,

A new incarnation of a parallel, once thought lost.


Nemo can mean a grove of trees.

Code branches in repositories...

some code once thought lost? lol, nah surely we're talking hardware today?

Maybe it isn't an FPGA? Maybe it's something different... ;)

That was my first idea too.

Would be great if the C-One concept will be adapted to Amiga!

At a1k.org Jens wrote that he is definetly NOT involved in this project, so it can't be the Clone-A.

Ben was a Cell fan, perhaps it's something that has some multimedia units in it.
Like GPU dedicated for general acceleration instead of (just) display???

Xilinx Virtex but that's a *very* expensive FPGA.
