Sunday morning. Ooh the peace and quiet (until the mower starts).

Anti-piracy groups are getting clever these days and having pirate material on your hard drive can be expensive. Just ask some of the people in Denmark. "A group affiliated with the Danish music, film and software industries has been sending out invoices to users of peer-to-peer file-sharing networks like Kazaa and eDonkey, demanding payment for downloaded copies of songs, movies or video games".

When I went to school the student would sometimes bring the teacher an apple as a gift. A sign of appreciation. It seems that is old school stuff. These days, you need to aim a little higher.

Google has launched a new service. Its called Froogle, and it aims to help the shopper find the goods they want to buy. Have a look for yourself and see what you can find. Thanks TheHippo.

Can't get ADSL in your area? You're not alone. Australia's DSL roll-out is not up to scratch according to this article on News.com.au.

This over on australia.internet.com. "VCAA and the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) will be offering SMS as one of the ways in which students can chose to receive their end of year ENTER and VCE results". We used to have to wait for a letter in the mail. Snail mail that is.

The latest version of Netscape has a feature that allows the user to suppress pop-ups. This is something all browsers should have, in my opinion.

AMDZone have a 4-way Radeon 9700 Shootout featuring cards from ATI, Crucial, FIC and Sapphire. If you're after one of these baby's then this is a must read article.

Thats about it for now.
