A Russian Cosmonaut was one half of the first marriage in Space last night. On a hopefully not-too-similar note, JimX spotted this interesting page about people in a vacuum from NASA. No, we don't go pop.
DesignTechnica have an editorial about copyright and its increasing impact on PC users.
From Iroquois: Here's a page with lots of pics of a very serious-looking motherboard, the TYAN S2885AGNR K8W. It's a Dual-Opteron with 8x AGP, Gigabit LAN, and support for up to 16GB of DDR333. I want one.
ARP have an article about reconfigurable computing. Imagine a processor that dynamically adapts itself to changing requirements. Such a processor would be able to reconfigure itself into a DSP or GPU as and when such functions are needed.
Stalin noticed that V2 of ClarkConnect has been released. A quick skim reveals it's a "free for non-commercial use" software package that transforms standard PC hardware into a dedicated broadband gateway and easy-to-use server. Sounds similar to Smoothwall which is very popular.
ReaX found an interesting site about the power of airbrushing. Scary!
Microsoft have a new tilt-wheel technology on the way for their mice, thanks Sniper.
Wish you could go back to the days of playing Doom? Well, you can bring Doom to the 21st century.
From Andrew: Couple of very intersting Linux bootables. Great for borrowing a Laptop and no having to worry about installing stuff. Needs a fair whack of hardware though. KNOPPIX is a bootable CD with a collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. STD focuses on information security and network management tools. It is meant to be used by both the novice looking to learn more about information security and the security professional looking for another swiss army knife for their tool kit.
There's a Pot Black gathering in Perth soon for some pool and OCAU socialising.. check that forum thread.
Alex says a new version of Powertoys for Windows XP has been released. You can find more info and download it from here. Details on what Powertoys does is here. There's some cool-sounding stuff there, I might have to install it on my WinXP lappy.
