First up today...

If you are chasing a job in the IT field, there are 100 IT positions up for grabs. "IAG who owns NRMA/CGU, are asking for Australia's BEST IT pros!!. Everything from desktop support to server support!! Melbourne/Sydney and the rest of the major cities". The jobs will be advertised in all major newspapers THIS Saturday & on Jobnet & Seek. Thanks Raz.

For those already with IT positions, elvis reminds us that tomorrow (25th) is SysAdmin Day. (ab)use it for all it's worth!

This is one heavy duty looking GPU cooler, the Zalman ZM80C-HP Heat-pipe. Full specs here.

Several people have sent word that Microsoft's DirectX 9.0b is available from the Windows Update site. I'm yet to give it a go but no problems have been reported so far. Thanks guys.

From Peter, "Just let you/community know, that nVidia released a new Quadro (Based on Gforce 5900) Quadro 3000 and 3000G". nVidia page here for more info, so if you have a few grand spare, go grab one.

PCStats have an article that everyone should read at least once and some people need to read many times, Beginners Guide: Installing Windows XP.

Its ZZZ time again, and that does not mean go to sleep!

Bjorn3D had a chat with nVidia last night, if you missed it you can find the chatlog here. They discussed things like the HL2 FSAA issue, the UT2k3 AF issue, and asked the big question "Why do NVIDIA optimise for benchmarks".

On DarkVision you can find some info and linked pictures of ATI's "To Be Released" Radeon9200SE. They look at the Sapphire Radeon 9200SE Atlantis. Thanks LSDsmurf.

The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) have handed out over 900 subpoenas in their move to identify and shut down individual song swappers. Are you on the list? Thanks Willy.

News-Hound eDust has returned from holidays and has a couple of interesting pieces. "Iomega have released their DCT drive (Digital Capture Technology), a small disk that holds 1.5 GB. Also, Palm have officially announced the Tungsten T2. I'm a big fan of the Tungsten T".

A very schmick looking mod called Integration Alumicoat. More aluminium than you could poke a mouse at!

Moggie found this very disturbed web server. Not disturbing, just disturbed. It's been around a while but is still funny.

There are a couple of LANS coming up for the Queenslanders, Sunny Coast Lan on the 3rd and then the 17th of August. Thanks Ghost.

SiliconAngel found a cool Flash site called HomeStarRunner, but it got "DELETED"!!! /StrongBad Voice.
