From Tee: There's been a bit of a stir here in the office about the Benny Benassi "Satisfaction" clip. I managed to track down the producers of the clip and they do some fantastic work. There's heaps of short clips on their site, mostly ads, but all are very funny. Mmmm.. bikinis and power tools. That clip is probably not safe for work.

From fxr91: ELECTRONICS manufacturer Toshiba and chip maker Elpida Memory said they will make memory chips that are about eight times quicker than today's fastest chips for gadgets in future network-linked homes. It seems that RAMBUS are back with some new faster memory also.

NetworksToday have an article about NAT and PAT: what they are and why you'd use them. You may even be using one of them now!

OCAddiction have a fairly ranty interview with the guy behind OmegaDrivers, which are alternate drivers for NVIDIA- and ATI-based video cards. Apparently NVIDIA aren't too happy about this at the moment.

Theres an interesting article here called You Don't Know Jack About Disks, about hard drive technology and how much it's changed over the last few years.

I'm not a huge fan of PC's that glow, but if you are, you should check out THW01F's PCDB entry.. which even has UV-sensitive paint on some motherboard components. A more pedestrian approach is this Tasmanian-themed case from mrfishy.

Ross notes this review of some OCZ memory which (among other interesting things) proves, as many have suspected, that OCZ memory chips are made by someone else and re-branded. No big surprise and no big deal really, provided the performance is there.

America has a new aircraft carrier, which isn't that interesting I guess, but I found the construction pictures amazing. One shot shows them lowering the "island" onto the deck - pretty much an entire 6-story building hanging in the air there. Engineering on a scale that's hard to fathom.

On a smaller scale, Rainwulf fan-modded his ADSL modem to stop it overheating and crashing.

TheModFathers wonder if heatspreaders for memory are worth bothering with. I still think Dan said it best (scroll down).
