Been a while since I've posted "normal" news. :) Many thanks to Mred32 for keeping things flowing while I concentrate on articles etc - there's certainly been plenty of those this week, with more to come. Thanks also to Sciby for assisting with the editing of a couple of reader-submitted reviews. Speaking of which, if you'd like to try your hand at writing an article or review of some goodies you've got lying around, we're more than happy to host it for you. Drop me an email if you want to chat about it.

This rocket man wants to fire himself 50 miles straight up in a home-made rocket.. that's taking DIY a little too seriously.

Hard to say whether this is a wind-up or not, but it's pretty funny and sad regardless.. a forum thread (non-OCAU) where someone gets confused about watercooling, with disastrous results, thanks Sim and JAB.

More cool stuff on NewScientist as always, this time molecular storage.

NewsFactor wonder if cybercrime still pays.. It is the stuff of IT lore -- a hacker is caught breaking into a company's systems and is given two options: Take a job with the company or face prosecution.

If you're annoyed by misleading ads from Bonzi Software, Sabretooth has some good news for you.

From Lord Archades: a good cheap alternative to the dremel and black and decker is the rotary tool from Super Cheap Auto. for $80 u get the tool, a bendable universal adapter thingie so u can get into tight places, some grinding stones, and other tools for the job. for $20 u can get a pack of a heap of grinding discs, cutting, hard and soft multi shaped stones. so for a hundred bucks u can get an awesome tool, instead of the $250 for a dremel. I think its perfect for modding. i just wish someone made cutting and grinding discs that last a while. a diamond disc would be good. The B&D Wizard (reviewed here) is a cheaper Dremel alternative, too. Personally, I got a Dremel and couldn't live without it now. :)

nEoLIthIc notes that PayTV Pirates are being nabbed.

StratosFear put together a huge OCAU XBOX FAQ in our Other Toys forum.
