A little more news, then some reviews!

Feel like your net connection is a bit tired and sluggish? Would 8609Mbps be better? GeeJay sent in this interesting story on "Fast TCP". I want. Now.

For those water coolers amongst us, OCAddiction have had a look at the CritiCool PowerPlant, a nifty little PCI-card-relay used to turn pumps on and off with your system.

X-bit labs have published a comparo of four chipsets for 200MHz FSB AthlonXP CPUs - NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400, NVIDIA nForce2 400, SiS748 and VIA KT600. Interesting read.

Stmok sent in a link to news of Microsoft developing it's own virus scanner. I'm surprised it's taken this long, personally.

A couple of interesting eBay auctions ... some Charlie's Angels signed stools (they're seats thankfully, I checked). Proceeds from that one go to Children's Cancer Institute Australia, definitely a highly worthy cause. On a slightly less serious note, if you'd prefer to own a bit of The King (literally) and have a lot of spare cash laying about, look here .... or, you could give me the money and I could send you something very similar. Thanks k00k.
