Interesting mod from Cursed.. is it a new window-mod idea or did he cut it on the wrong side? :) Some discussion about it in this thread.

Sypha spotted this Volcano9 mod which apparently makes it cool even better.

Stanza sent in this page with some conspiracy theories about WinXP.

VR-Zone have a Barton engineering sample photograph - slightly larger core than Thoroughbred due to the 512KB L2 cache, thanks (of course) Claw Hammer.

Ben noticed this guy getting a loan through Ebay. Bidding on the opportunity to lend someone money, hmm.

Monster-Hardware have been modding their GF4, with core and memory voltage mods and watercooling.

Black holes smashing together, oh my!

Apparently this machine is unhackable.. how's that for a challenge? Thanks Aquaholic.

From Joshua: Microsoft has just released (the game) Asherons Call 2 in the USA with the release date here on the 6th Dec. Unfortunatly they have had an oversight and you cannot play it if you live outside these areas. Info here and here.

We'll assume this is a mixup by GigaByte's marketing people, but they're saying here that AMD's Hammer has Intel's HyperThreading technology. Sin22 suggests perhaps they meant HyperTransport.

TechSpot have a list of zillions of operating system updates that you might need.

Seems Microsoft think Unix is not too bad after all.. well, they did a little while ago, thanks Skit.

Whitey Ford has an interesting idea in our Pub forum, an OCAU Secret Santa where forum-goers randomly send a Christmas present to someone else.

AMDMB have their COMDEX coverage posted. Sudhian have part II of theirs up.

Arkenstone noticed that security.debian.org burned down a few days ago. Pictures here.

From the PCDB: HyperSonic turned an old VCR into a DVD PC, very nicely done. NakedChef has pics of their project to install an appliqued window with LED fans in it. Sometimes though, it seems a huge fan is the only solution. :)

Overkill LAN is on in Melbourne on the 14th and 15th Dec, info here.
