Need Help Identifying A Motherboard?

I stumbled upon this page at Intel while trying to identify a motherboard that had no clear model number (the only designation that was obvious was E210882) and thought I’d share, since it was quite helpful. =)

Search by AA numbers

If you know your AA (or Altered Assembly) number, you can use our search engine to find information on your IntelĀ® Desktop Board. You will only need to know the first 6 digits of your board’s AA number (Figure 1). Type these 6 numbers into the search box in the left hand channel (Figure 2), and press the go button.

Note: It is important not to include the -xxx to the number, and only search on the first 6 numbers.

Linked Lists

Excellent Computer Science resource with tutorials and Java code examples at – this was very helpful to me in my CS courses…

Linked Lists are a very common way of storing arrays of data. The major benefit of linked lists is that you do not specify a fixed size for your list. The more elements you add to the chain, the bigger the chain gets.

There is more than one type of a linked list, although for the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll stick to singly linked lists (the simplest one). If for example you want a doubly linked list instead, very few simple modifications will give you what you’re looking for. Many data structures (e.g. Stacks, Queues, Binary Trees) are often implemented using the concept of linked lists.
