Asus Express Gate Lite
Asus has recently come up with a modified version of the Express Gate linux OS. Express gate had a clever concept of "Add some flash memory to a motherboard and you have an instant OS" but it is limited when it comes to functionality
Asus's lite version of the OS only shares the code base, as you have to install it on a hard drive (can also be installed on a flash drive but Asus doesn't recommend it).
Express Gate Lite has been tuned by Asus to work with their motherboards, which means drivers will be about.
One of the first reported Express Gate Lite motherboards is Asus's M3N-H/HDMI  (shown on right). Has a Geforce 8300 chipset which can support simple 3D, it also has PCI-E x16 slot, two PCI-E x1 slots and 3 PCI slots. The board is passively cooled and is said to get a little toasty.

You would not believe what just came into my Village pub... a PARROT!? :o
The bloke named John(our primary school council leader - worrying I know) comes to the Four Horse shoes with a parrot in a cage under one arm and a dog on a lead in the other.

Unbelievable! The parrot can talk. It was a fantastic afternoon chatting with it. It likes to whistle a lot, little tunes it gets from TV and so on. He also said a few funny phrases. The bird is called Humphrey by the way.

"My Name is Humphrey, I am a Vulture" <--- My favorite.

"Im a Celebrity" <--- Reason being, he escaped and was in a news paper.

"Who turned out the lights" <---- Said when john put a blanket over the cage to keep the rain off.

As you can tell it was very funny. He also did some evil laughs too. Oh and a telephone ringing. That was amazing seeing as it sounded very electronic.

Haha, great fun.
Should we have a Off to the Pub thread? Anywhoo, what is everyone up to?

I would've gone to the pub today, but I put it off for tomorrow, as I have to get up early tomorrow to move some stuff for my uncle. So I'm actually in bed, so this is more like my "off to bed"-post. :P But I'm gonna get sh*tfaced tomorrow. :D

Edit: Btw, I'd love to see a talking parrot! :D Did ya take any pics, or better, film it?

I have a few phone pictures.. and a film. Hard to get him to talk though. He does it on his own accord.

Once I find the cable ill post the pics.

Heh, we haven't actually got any "local bar", but we're proud to have the highest amount of bars and nightclubs of any city in Norway. :D

I'm practically next door to a pub. Not the friendliest bunch, but you can just ignore them and get on with drinking and playing pool.

Hmm. pub tomorrow sounds like a plan.

pubs are wonderful things :)

Agreed. I live opposite one student pub named the Avondale, and am surrounded by a plethora of clubs and bars.

Trying to sleep during the weekends isn't all that easy, but i'm used to it.

Ahh yeah I'm just back from the pub.. Been out playing PGA Golf on one of those pub machines with the ball.. Great!!

A load of parakeets chill out near me and have done for years.. Not quite the same but still nice. There seem to be loads in London since a few escaped quite a few years ago.
