Digital-Daily have a roundup of cheap coolers for socket A CPUs.

A couple of news bits on ZDNet UK, it seems DVD X Copy is going to be released despite an immanent court ruling which may go against it. Also, this item describes a fake PayPal site which wants to know your password and pin number. Thanks Gavin.

PCStats have posted a handy beginners guide, this time all about Internet Connection Sharing. Also, one on Home Networking and File Sharing.

A new article at Monster Hardware, Basic Networking Tips featuring Belkin networking products.

Ross found a great site and thought he would share it with us. Electronics Cooling have an online magazine and there are many articles that will be of interest to the overclocking community. I just spent an hour there and bookmarked it for more.

After clicking on a pop-up advertising a program called "Memory Meter", forum regular Anarki decided to have a read of the EULA and was disturbed to read the following: By using the Software, you may be exposed to contaminated files, computer viruses, eavesdropping, harassment, electronic trespassing, hacking and other harmful acts or consequences that might lead to unauthorised invasion of privacy, loss of data and other damages". You can read the full EULA here. Personally, i'd be giving it a big miss.

From fxr91, Shaft and Splade. If you are into online games, and happen to live in Thailand, you may cry now. "Authorities in Thailand are set to impose a strict curfew on online gaming which will see access to online game servers blocked between 10pm and 6am every day, with Internet cafés also facing curbs to their business hours along the same lines". Read the full article here.

There has been a lot of talk lately that Microsoft's Xbox has a major security hole that will compromise its integrity. Certain people threatened to go public with the details of this unless MS agreed to release a Linux boot loader for Xbox. Well, MS declined and so the details are here for all to see. We have a forum thread about it here. Thanks Zach.

Linux hits the movies, thats the title of an article which talks about the computers used to render films such as Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas and others from Pixar and Dreamworks. Thanks Michael

Ahead Nero, or Nero Burning Rom is due for an upgrade with version 6 ready for release on the 18th of July. CDFreaks received a copy of the new Nero Burning ROM software and they can show you what you can expect from this new version. Find it here.

This from Radix. A new website has popped up recently that's run by a local Perth guy I know. It's called GotMyVote, has real potential and it's recently gone live as of July 1st. What the site does is allow you to vote for your favourite things, services, products and just about anything else you can think of. It's an Australian grown site - is free to use and anyone can join and put in their vote, or see the top 5 votes that people have listed for a particular service, etc. Check it out.

Brett sent in a link to the Australian High Tech Crime Centre. Interesting!

Here is another article on Lifters , those amazing yet simple anti-gravity devices that people have been playing with for the last 80 or so years. I'm yet to see an anti-grav car. Perhaps they're waiting for someone to invent very long extension cords.
