Well folks. It's that time of year again. The fat man in red will be coming to visit soon so I hope you will all be on your best behavior. Christmas, New Year, and of course, school holidays. And what do we always get when we have school holidays. Yes, thats right. It's script kiddie season. I hope everyone has done the rounds and installed those security patches that you never quite got around to. Beefed up the anti-virus and firewall. Locked the servers down good and tight. I guess it's just a fact of life these days. Anyway, on with the news.

Forum member risesies notes that the number of threads in the pub has passed the 10,000 mark. Dare I say well done people.

Neil from www.envynews.com has put up a review of the MacPower DigiDoc5. Not new you say! They now come in silver and black. He also has a look at how well a Thermalright SK-7 heatsink can cool an Athlon XP 2000+ CPU.

CoRDWoRK doesn't want any of us to get any work done at all. Here is a few more flash games with which you can idle away the hours. I like the animal maze game, just watch out for the sharks.

The GTR2002 mod for f1 2002 has been made available. Go here and follow the instructions on how to download it.

First Person Shooters. Sure, we love to play them. Björn's 3D World have come up with the Top Ten Reasons not to play them. Number 7 rings a bell with me for some reason! 7)Showing your four year old child how to rocket jump just doesn't go over well with the spouse.

For all the rally drivers out there, 3DAvenue have taken an in depth look at Microsoft's PC port of Rallisport Challenge.

So far, VIA's 8x AGP implementation has not been very successful when teamed with the KT400 chipset. Well, VIA has finally come up with an answer in a new set of drivers reviewed by Amdmb.com

3dGameMan have a video review of the FIC AN19E Stealth² Motherboard (Socket 462). Might be a bit of a strangle for those on dial-up.

If you're like me and not much of a hand at modding, then a pre-modded case might be the way to go. GideonTech have reviewed the Jupiter case from Skyhawk.

Niko from Red&Blackness Mods has posted a shootout between no less than 4 Thermal Compound. Wow.

Thats about all from me for today as it's back to bed ready for the night shift again tonight.
