Hi from the new NewsGibbon! errmm, I mean NewsMonkey .... first post, so please be gentle.

There's an interesting article comparing hyperthreading performance in Win2k and WinXP over at ComputerBase. Always amusing to see how well babelfish translates ... The original German version is here for those able.

Apparently the Irish TV network RTE thought it would be a good idea to stage a Big Brother style show on a boat - until it sank in the Irish Sea. That's a real shame, but what's more of shame is that houses at Dreamworld don't generally sink, if you ask me. Thanks nEoLIthIc.

A couple of cool links from ShonkyMan. A cable clock, and a vacbot, which certainly wouldn't go astray around here. Hmmmm, I wonder how my cat would feel about that.

Daniel sent in this rather amusing Matrix bastardisation. I knew Tom was the root of all evil!

Do you feel like sometimes you play games just a little too often and should be outside in the real world from time to time? If so, don't watch this video, a documentary on modern day gamers. The video is ~ 70MB, but it's worth the download. Thanks to Chris Bailey.

ATI have the official Catalyst 3.5 drivers on their site. You can get them here (thanks Shintaro)

A couple of people sent in links to news of (up to) 100Mbit Fibre-optic broadband currently up and running to some South Perth homes. Gimme gimme gimme! More information here.

A fairly comprehensive review/stress test of a nice and shiny P4 2.4C CPU at digital-daily. The 2.4C looks to be pretty good value for money at the moment.

Have you found yourself wondering what the graphics card market is like in Slovenia? I can't say it's something that's kept me awake at night, but there's a very good interview over at Slo-tech with Richard Huddy, ATI's man-in-europe about ATI, NVidia and where things are headed. Oh, and not just in Slovenia.

Finally, svirax sends word of LANbash, happening on the 5th - 6th of July at the Alstonville (now there's an ironic name for anything related to technology) Leisure and Entertainment Centre, which I think is somewhere near Lismore in NSW.
