ACA500 isn't forgotten. It's just that another project slipped in, and Nequester is on *very* high priority right now. Things do happen "in silence", and I'm confident I can ship the ACA500 next month.

The X-Surf 100 is exactly what slipped in - with the Nequester project in preparation for the pilot production, I needed "something small" and "something network-related" to build as a test case for label printing, MAC address generation and bar code conversion for automatic tracking on a distributed system which accesses a remote database. All these procedures must be tested on something, and I thought it would be a good idea to test it on a netowrking card for our favourite machines: Z2/Z3 autosensing, 100MBit and a local, fast expansion port for a USB 2.0 high-speed expansion. I'll make the "official announcement" next week. This works better with pictures and our own online store, which is also being prepared.

Meanwhile, everyone could help out testing network performance of their own ethernet solutions. Especially PCI (such as G-Rex, Prometheus and Mediator) are interesting, because they also offer 100MBit. Please post your results (and only your results, no discussion - I'd like to have that thread for overview) here:
