Christmas morning. Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope that Santa delivered all the things on your wish list. If you have all been good boys and girls then I'm sure he did. Here's to a safe and relaxing day for us all and I hope you stocked up on AA's. I know I did. The new Char-G is going to need them.

A week or so ago, Agg posted his review of the Asetek Vapochill PE. OPPAINTER from XtremeSystems has also had a look at this unit. His review is here.

JMke from Madshrimps has put three KT400 motherboards up against each other with some surprising results. The Asus A7V8X, Gigabyte GA-7vax and Msi KT4 Ultra. Check it out.

This must have come from America. A Christmas legal contract to avoid any unpleasantness with your relatives. Don't believe me! More info here. Thank Patdman for the link.

It looks like Yahoo is to Buy Inktomi. Anthony wonders how this will effect Google, if at all. Also from Anthony comes news that Red Hat have released Phoebe, their new beta release of Red Hat Linux.

There has been a lot of discussion about GF4-4600 video cards being killed when used on an EPOX 8RDA+ motherboard. PiLsY from the Xtreme Systems Forums seems to have found the reason for this. It has to do with the physical installation of the card, and not an electrical incompatibility with the EPOX 8RDA+ motherboard. I know quiet a few people have lost new GF4's to this so if you own or plan on buying these two components, this is a must read item. Thanks to DF and several others for the link.

Yesterday I mentioned this site with info on how a web site can access you clipboard data. Mig has provided us with a solution to the problem. "To fix that IE clipboard bug, go to IE's Internet Options->Security Tab->Internet Zone->Custom Level. Disable "Allow paste operations via script". Thanks Mig.

3DVelocity have decided to put a dual MP2200+ machine to the task of Video Creation. How did it go? Read it and find out.

Hexus.net have an article titled WaterCooling - Here to Stay or Passing Fad?. Read it for yourself, but for me, it is here for as long as it provides me with an advantage over whatever else is available.
