JetSurf Board – Riding Without The Waves


Water toys never end, this was created for those who love to surf, just reminded me of the Segway for some reason. This a gas-powered mini-surfboard with a built-in 100cc engine for a propeller. With its 35 mph capacity, all you need is to thrust on that hand-operated control unit and your surfing in seconds.

A unique design and very light surfboard, design with a powerful one-of-a-kind engine technology and handcrafted carbon-kevlar make. The board comes in three variants, the ‘Ultra Sport’ basic board-for-all with an 86 cc displacement and 30mph, the fully equipped 100cc ‘Factory’ model that tops out at 34mph and the 100cc ‘Pro Race’ 35 mph advanced model for expert riders. Each comes equipped with a 2.5L fuel tank fit for over an hour of runtime. This machine can surf on many different surfaces, and I would love to try it in Khiran, it would be interesting to see how this moves. Priced at approximatly $16’000, I really want to try this thing out, looks like a lot of fun.

EVGA Classified SR-2


“The Mother of All Mother Boards”

That is what they call the scariest motherboard I have ever seen, I have built the infamous Intel SkullTrail and that monster was a beast, but this is just another creature. Running dual Intel Xeon processors, 12 Dimms for up to 48 GB DDR3 Ram, Two Sata III, Two USB 3.0, and a very big board. Every once in a while there is a piece of hardware which just blows you out of the water, the last one for me was the Skulltrail and I got it after a long time, and not the Classified SR-2 from EVGA. They really outdid themselves, has twin LGA1366 sockets, providing the foundation for a colossal 12-core, 24-threaded monster box, and it’s worth noting that Intel’s Core i7-980X isn’t supported. This board is so big they had to make use of the new acronym, HPTX, which is bigger the ATX boards which are the usual size in computers. It can be yours for about $600 and that doesn’t include the extremely expensive Intel Xeons that you have to get the heart beating in this beast, but if your looking for something that can eat up all you can throw at it then this is where you start.

The Boards Have Arrived

After a lot of tinkering and figuring things out with the Windows Home Server, I’m planning on building a new server and performing a data and hardware transplant. Two boards have arrived:

The Asus board will be used for the server and it will be the work horse to make sure that it takes care of everything. Suprisingly I’m running the current WHS on a weak motherboard but its handling it, but its reaching its limit and I have almost filled up 11 TB worth of data with duplication. Expansion is at hand but with the right planning, in regards to the Skulltrail I am going to build a 64 bit Vista machine to handle all the tasks, and I’m planning on upgrading my KVM to a dual dvi output KVM and at last one has been made by Linkskey.

I would want to build the machines now but I have to wait on the rest of the parts which are slowly trickling in. I bought one case online against my better judgement because of the shipping cost and the other one will be from Kuwait, so I have to see what is available.
