Uwe, thank you very much for your reply.

That sounds good! So patience is my goal... or learning C++ very fast. ;-)

I just feared that the work on the A8N-E board runs into a "dead-end".

A.f.a.i.k. the board was well sold as it was state-of-the-art some time 
ago and is therefor widely available (at least in my surrounding area).

Keep healthy!
