Something easy to start with today. The smallest review I have ever read. The Zalman Fan mate gets a mention on PCDreams.

Blagged-hardware have an article for you, titled A Guide to Effective Air-Cooling it covers all the basics and has some good pics and diagrams. If you think your system could do with some extra air, this might be the place to start.

XbitLabs have reviewed a Maxtor D540X-4G 120GB hard drive. If, like me, you are continually scraping around for extra drive space, something like this would go well under the Christmas tree. Actually, in the computer would be a better spot but you know what i mean.

Part six of the Definitive BIOS Optimisation Guide Rev. 7 is up at Adrian's Rojak Pot. I have learnt a fair bit from this series. If you are the least bit interested in the inner working of your BIOS, head on over and have a read.

Microsoft has released some new tools for .NET developers with the aim of increasing security in message routing and transmitting file attachments via Web services.

For "The Sims Online" fans, there is some new info over at CNet. Have a read. I think am going to get this game though I will wait for a few more reviews.

Search engine HotBot, has had a facelift. More than a facelift, a redesign in fact. More info here.

Do you need a few extra bucks? Then "get a web site". Beggin' for bucks via the Internet is catching on in a big way. Maybe I could beg for a motherboard to go with my new CPU. Read more over at Ars Technica.

A neat looking LCD display. USB powered, serial based. The "LIS: Lost In Space LCD Display". Go and read all about it at GideonTech.

This was in the news box this morning and although I was hesitant to include it (as its not really news) :), it did bring a smile to my dial. www.COLONPEE.com. Blame DJ-Studd.
