Hello again OCAU. I know many of you would rather I was working on The Imperator rather than starting a new project, but when VIA tapped me on the shoulder to do something for the 10 year anniversary of the debut of Mini-ITX, I couldn't resist. After building the GTRPC in the late 90's, in 2003 I worked with VIA on Project JellyBean, or Eve as she was known officially, for display at trade shows such as Computex. To commemorate the evolution of the Mini-ITX platform, I'm going to build the project that I really wanted to more than a decade ago. Now free from many of the restrictions imposed by the size and capability of the technology, I can build something that is beautiful, functional and at the same time, completely pointless. But hey, isn't all art like that? Well... exepct maybe the functional bit. Work commences this weekend, I hope you'll join me for a simultaneous review of the past while building the future.
