There's been something brewing among some of the international hardware websites for the last day or so and now it seems to have exploded. TomsHardware visited and sponsored the MillionMan LAN recently. AMDMB.com were vocal in their disappointment over what they termed a "media blackout" by TomsHardware of the event. Sudhian managed to also cover the event despite the blackout and LANAddict have some coverage too. TomsHardware have now indicated they will be suing AMDMB.com for the comments made in their article. HardOCP now have joined the debate, with much info and opinion on their newspage, to the point of financially supporting AMDMB's defense of their case. TomsHardware have a further response posted. Stay tuned, I guess..

This article has some info about products on the way from AMD.

From von Stalhein: I was browsing here and noticed that the advice on the bottom of the page could be taken by the more cynical amongst us completely the wrong way: "* The specifiction and pictures are subject to change without notice." :-) Heh, well spotted. Maybe they're being more honest than other manufacturers. :)

lordconan noticed this Tron 2.0 game. If you're into lightcycle games, Armagetron is another good one.

Hardware-Test have a guide to making an 8-port fanbus which is controlled via software and your parallel port.. neato, but seems complex for electronics n00bs like me.

Rachmaninov spotted this amusing story about the Slashdot effect knocking an entire country off the net.
