    Too good for Joe Bloggs...

    CK 1985 guessed the last HEXUS.pipeline straight away, so here's one to really test you: The upper echelon, initially asynchronous JavaScript and XML we hear, mixed with a sound mission.
    Watch the show.

    Re: Too good for Joe Bloggs...

    well One Thee Three Seven = 1337 = Elite so i'm guessing it's an ECS Board...

    Not got a clue with the upper echelon, AJAX and sound emissions clues though...

    ECS A790GXM-A by the looks of the dual LAN and serial port.

    Red is on the right track and Hibby gets it REAL close... really, really close! (So close as to be right, tbh)

    Just like GCSE Maths, please show your working out. The fun is in deciphering the clues.

    Well done Hibby.

    1337 & upper echelon = Elitegroup
    sound mission = 790 (speakers from mission)

    No idea how that combines with AJAX to form what Hibby said.

    Re: Too good for Joe Bloggs...

    A+J+XML + "we hear" = A...GXM-A ?

    TBH I just went with the memory slot colours from the video and the I/O layout. Credit to VictorE for the manufacturer, would have taken a bit longer otherwise.

    Re: Too good for Joe Bloggs...

    Ok, here's the solution:

    "1337" as Red and duc guessed = Elite, from the 1337 speak dictionary as used by CS script kiddies.

    duc was on the money with "The upper echelon," = Elite Group, as hinted by 1337.

    Duc was also spot on with "a sound mission" = hit Mission's site and there you'll find the 790 speakers

    Hibby was seriously close with his guess about "initially asynchronous JavaScript and XML". The key to this one was the "initially" and "we hear".

    "asynchronous JavaScript and XML" is more widely known as AJAX, as Hibby guessed, which is why "initially" was in the clue, so you'd go for the initials.

    "we hear," was a clue to it sounding like AJAX, which is where the G comes in.

    And finally "mixed with" is to tell you to mash that lot up, giving you the Elite Group A790GX-A.

    So you guys were seriously close on the clues there, seriously close.

    I think the cookie has to go to Hibby as he was really close on the actual product but Red and duc deserve a special mention for their deciphering skills.

    Well done all. New HEXUS.pipeline on the way.
