Start of a new working week. (0 Comments) (link)

Monday morning. Don't you just love the smell of a new week at work? No, neither do I. So lets have some news instead...

Lou seems to think that snakes and power supplies don't mix very well (duh). Tech support would have a few tails to tell after this one came in.

Someone called Jacob from Nigeria wants to put millions of dollars into my bank account...do people really believe those things.

Viperlair.com have an guide on how to setup internet connection sharing. Why pay for routers when you can use windows built in tools to do the job.

Tom advises that CoolBits doesn't seem to work with Detonator version 40.72. Dropping back to 29.42 enables CoolBits to work again. This may be because the 40.72 are WHQL certified, which typically means no overclocking. You might want to try nVHardPage that we linked to yesterday.

From thetron, the producer of BF1942, Lars Gustavsson, will hold a lecture which will last 1 hour at the Australian Games Developer Conference 2002 (6th - 8th Dec). In his lecture "Battlefield 1942: A Developers Diary from the Trenches" he will tell about the development time of our beloved game.

Jet Pack Sam is the flash game for the day. It's a blast. Gotta love these things...

Want to light up you case? PC-max.de have an article showing you how to do it using LED's.

Are you into distributed computing? Looking for a new project to donate those spare CPU cycles to? This might be what you are after. James writes: It uses distributed computing to compile a list of spam emails. If a Spam makes it through you simply block it and that "vote" against that spam goes into a general pool of spam senders. If enough people indicate an email is spam, then it gets automatically deleted from your inbox. So far, it gets about 90% of spam for me and the more people that use it the more effective it (in theory) should become. Also, there is no chance of having a personal email blocked accidentally as it doesn't use content filtering. Only problem at the moment is that it only works on Outlook. The Site claims an Outlook Express version is coming soon. Sounds promising.

Another Kikkoman flash thingy...translated into english this time. I don't know if I should laugh or cry!

Remember the WinIPcfg utility that shipped with Win98/Me? thetron sends word that MS have an equivalent for use with Win2k/XP. Get it free from here.

Thinking about rushing out and buying yourself a Dremel? Who isn't. Overclocker Warehouse have a bit of a play with one. Sexy little machines aren't they!

Dan's latest letters are out!
