From Eluial: Linux.conf.au 2003 is Australia's national Linux conference; it will be held at The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia, from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th January 2003. This is the fourth conference of its kind in Australia (following L.C.A. 2002 in Brisbane, 2001 in Sydney, and CALU 1999 in Melbourne). Also, Dave noticed this storage networking exhibition on in Sydney soon.

There's pics (and non-english text) of a watercooled PSU on InsaneWB.

Xbit have examined the effect of CPU power on graphics card performance. Their article deals with the investigation of ATI RADEON 9700 PRO performance in Intel Pentium 4 and AMD Athlon XP based systems of different levels.

Isengard noticed this linux security howto for power-users. Ars-Technica, meanwhile, have a wireless networking security guide posted, thanks dave.

Aselabs have an easy case modding guide. Slightly more complicated is this project to add an indiglo clock to your PC on GideonTech. BurnOutPC squeezed an entire PC into an old scanner, while Monster-Hardware built a lego PC.

Oosh reminds us not to mess with engineers.. A reclusive pensioner who booby-trapped his home with the intention of killing his estranged family, died himself when he inadvertently triggered one of his own devices.

HWZ have compared AGP 4x to AGP 8x.. this is the 2nd part of their article, taking the newly released NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200-8x for a ride on the SiS648 platform.

The price war between AMD and Intel continues to lower prices, thanks Silent Remorse.

From Sin22: Tt SubZero4G featuring a TEC. What will they think of next.... rather have a Swifty MCX462+T which is reviewed here.

More letters and answers from Dan.

GotApex compared three SiS648-based motherboards for P4's, from ASUS, Shuttle and ABIT.

Mark spotted this pretty cool project, the Thunder Table.. a coffee-table with a monster subwoofer built into it.

Digit-Life have a digest of some recent happenings in the mobile communications world.

nBK sent word that Telstra may be fixing the ADSL problems that many people have been complaining about recently.

Tori Lee says that the current Cook-Off in the Geek Food forum is for a photogenic smorgasbord.. so get your camera into the kitchen I guess. :)
