Can't you infuse the wood with some kind of resins to fix that?Some day when the case CAD files are published, someone needs to CNC machine a case out of wood. I would like mine made from a solid block of cherry wood please. Yeah, it would be more fragile than plastic, but cool factor 11 and all.
Reading between the lines on the mailing list archives, I think there'll be a delay while Nikolaus redesigns boards, they get made and populated and tested, and the ED or someone tests them. While Nikolaus sounds as confident he's found at least one of the issues I reckon ED will wait and see what that reveals, and not offer 2GB boards early. I think the improvements might make 2GB boards more stable under high loads as well, although perhaps not - they already survive a thorough memtest and that's pretty heavy on RAM by its nature.Looking every day at the mailing list, I can't see any other option regarding the CPU board.
Wish I'm wrong.
