After a long hard day cruising the Swan River, enjoying the sun and the scenery, I thought it time to do some news. I know what you're thinking, but you can save the applause for later.

Do you drink coffee? Are you a caffeine freak? Some interesting research here claims to show why different people react to caffeine in different ways.

ZALMAN have released a new VGA cooler. Called the NORDIC WHISPER (and looking very much like the Zalman Heat Pipe), it is being touted as "their silent thermal solution of choice for high-end graphics cards". Knowing Zalman products, they are probably spot on the mark.

Arctic Cooling have a heatsink round-up. It looks like more of a sell-up, but there is some good info available.

Some people have come up with all sorts of ways to remove a P4 heat-spreader. This is the first time I have heard of someone milling a Pentium 4 processor. Have a look for yourselves.

Do you own an optical mouse? well then, you a one in 100,000,000. Thats the number of optical mouse sensors shipped by their manufacturer. Thanks Gaz.

I often see people wanting to buy dead CPUs. Now I know what they are doing with them. Read here. Hair by Intel, link by idosillythings.

The landmark trial of Jon Johansen, the guy who wrote DeCSS, has come to an end. The trial was held in Norway and although the trial judge is yet to hand down a decision, the closing arguments of both the defence and the prosecution have brought some interesting points to light. Read more here.

This over on Cnet. "Less than a week after Australia's high court issued a ruling suggesting that online publishers are fair game for libel suits anywhere their content appears, a U.S. federal court has veered in the opposite direction". Just exactly where this leaves the Australian court decision is unknown at this point.

There is a battle going on with our Folding@Home team. Folding member plext (team #24) has issued a challenge to team DGROMS.com (also team #24) in a race to beat team How???'s (team #64) point score. How will it end? Go here and find out. Also a sub-team battle is raging within the fold. Have a read of this thread in the forums and for the full details. Thanks to CrikeyMoses (and Bollocks) for the headsup.

Digit-Life have posted their November 2002 Hardware Digest. There you will find info on things like production, technologies, equipment processors, motherboards and chipsets and memory.

Looking for free Wi-Fi access in Brisbane? Then have a look here.
