Musta been a batch of bad peanuts or something.. I think all my newsmonkeys have died. Only Darkness has endured!

David wrote a cool thing: I made a little OCAU reg tweak that adds "OCAU" to the right click menu of IE (when text is selected) and allows easy searching of the forums. Thread about it here, download it here.

Marz spotted the world's funniest joke.. and it's even funny.. a bit. :)

ArsTechnica have an article on Hyperthreading and Superthreading.

ExtremeSystems have a guide to voltmodding the Radeon 9700 Pro. Check out our review of this card here.

I can't believe people are still falling for the Nigerian Scam.. some of the baddies have been busted now anyway, thanks Robin.

Having said that, looks like we fell for the blondes are going extinct story.. which apparently isn't true. Yay. ;)

Perhaps a life of crime isn't on the cards for this guy.. funny stuff, thanks Sniper.

OCWorkbench reviewed the Gigabyte 8SG667, an SiS648-based P4 DDR motherboard. They noticed there's a secret tweaking section in the bios! Those sneaky Gigabyte engineers.

One of the biggest mod chip manufacturers may be going bye-bye soon, as Microsoft have unleashed the lawyers.. thanks Dan.

Quilb spotted this SysAdmin Career Guide thing, funny.

Mark noticed that, in the wake of cutting their HDD warranties from 3 years to 1 year, Western Digital will let you buy an extension back to 3 years for $20USD. Hmm.

DWPG have an article about electromigration.. haven't heard that one since the days of burning in Celeron 366's.

I actually wrote "Viruses" for the title of my earlier news post, but corrected it to "Virii" immediately after. Now, Martinus tells me I was wrong to do that.. hmm, I'm sure I can work that tidbit into the next geek cocktail party I go to. :)
