 Wednesday, 30-October-2002  19:04:35 (GMT +10) - by Darkness'

As promised, here is part 2!

Don't forget our ever so sweet OCAU competition! In which you can win yourself a brand new P4 system from Computer Alliance! Not to be outdone, Come to the OCAU weekend and you can win yourself some stuff! Oh yea, there is some paintballing, go-carting and bowling as-well. :)

"Intersil Corp. today laid claim to the first two-chip, dual-band wireless LAN chipset for 802.11a, b and g." More info can be found here.

There is a roundup of 4 silent HSFs here. "2 of these heatsink fans are from OCZtechnology: Gladiator 2 SE, and the smaller Glacier. The other two competitors are from Zalman: CNPS3100-GP and the CNPS6000-Cu."

Apparently this is the first look at Windows XP MCE (media center edition).

CerealKiller sent in this damn time waster which delayed the news for a little while. :) cheers.

Interested in lighting up your case? Here is an 8 way cold cathode roundup.

Dan has been writing again, this time about "Apple keyboards on PCs, where to find drivers for an orphan modem, why two dollar video cards are a bad choice, why PC speaker magnets are safe near hard drives, whether DDR memory's worth the money if you're on a budget, one of many ways to stop your LAN from working, and how to get your Recycle Bin back. And there's a handy household hint."

This is old, but still funny for some cat lovers, PawSense, the cat protection program. "PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It quickly detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard." Thanks Sarah.

There is an article up that takes a look into BitBoys.
