Some Finnish lads calling themselves Skenegroup set out to break the 3DMark record.. 20724 is not a bad effort at all.

Chris says the Sun isn't going to go pop in 6 years after all, info here and here. Well, that's a relief. :)

Nice modded mini-PC with an LCD screen in the front here, thanks Dink.

MadShrimps have an AthlonXP 2200+ unlocking movie posted.

There was a DDoS attack on the internet root servers earlier in the week, thanks DeeMan. Hmm, I wonder what hardware/software the root servers run. More info here thanks IQ2HI and here thanks Fezzik.

From eDust: There's a software package that can track the location of 802.11 devices to within 1 metre. It has a few useful application, would also be good to hunt down wardrivers.

THX1138 sent in this weird airborne wireless mouse.. wouldn't your arm get tired, waving that thing around all day?

From Robert: Small companies say they're being sued for employing common practices for doing business on the Net. News article here. The founder of the chocolate company in the article and a group have created this site about the problem.

A article by Richard Stallman, founder of the free software foundation, has appeared here on TheAge. An interesting read about "Who Controls Your Computer?", thanks Lefarc.

Dan compared a couple of broadband routers.

Beyond3D have an article about some new workstation graphics cards from 3DLabs.

From mence: LED Spotlights here on Bit-Tech. Also, there's a DIY ghetto version here at metku mods.

VR-Zone have an interview with an Abit person.

SystemCooling have been modding their CoolerMaster ATC-710 case.

Apparently Intel's 3.06GHz P4 will be available on the 15th November. From Sam: I don't know if this has been widely available but in order to get the benefits of and to be able to display the hyperthreading badge on a system you will need to conform to the following: 1. 3.06 or higher 2. Hyperthreading approved chipset 3. Win XP or Linux which support hyperthreading (i foget the version) 4. A thermally efficient and approved case (not essential). The hyperthreading logo will not come with any cpu's but when you have sent in you system test results certain Intel partners will be able to access the badges. Others will be able to install a splash screen for the OS which will display the hyperthreading logo. On the AMD side, I've heard from a few sources now that the XP2400+ is available in Oz right now in "tray only" form, with the boxed retail pack coming in about 3 weeks. Pretty silly really, given we reviewed the XP2600+ here back on the 21st of August.. and the 2800+ has been reviewed by other sites since.
