Viper Lair want to show you how to setup a Linux Router/Firewall. Forum member Martinus shows you how to setup a diskless version also.

Alltechbox.com have had a look at the IOSS RD1 BIOS Savior. "Thanks to the built in FlashROM, after installing the RD1, you will have two BIOS chips and with the small included switch you will have the ability to chose which BIOS to use when booting your PC. Since the two chips are separate and only one can be active at any time, if something goes wrong with the first BIOS you can always reboot your PC using the other BIOS and then restore the damaged one."

A personal favorite of mine, Sygate Personal Firewall has been given a once over by The Inquirer. SPF is free for home use.

Ian from Designtechnica has a look at this years Comdex with a focus on the non-computer related items (gadgets) on display. Seems mostly PC related to me.

It seems that Abit have decided to drop support for Intel's Granite bay. "Granite Bay is too little and too late" say the folk at Abit.

Since it's the silly season, Arachnadactly sent in a link to the Elf Bowling game. Now at version 2.

It looks like taxi fares are going to rise again, but only if you want to listen to the radio whilst you're in the taxi. Thanks AzonIc.

Oh, and some more letters and answers from Dan.
