I notice THW01F has updated his PCDB entry, it continues to impress. The entries from SpOoNFisH and millhouse aren't bad either.

Sniper noticed this news release from the office of Senator Alston, regarding Using internet for offensive and menacing purposes to be outlawed.

HotHardware have GeForce FX5900 cards from ABIT and Leadtek in a shootout.

A few people have mentioned the Google Calculator. There's a thread here in our forums about it.

Seen any giant beavers lately?

Here's another Australian robot from Roland. With a flower focus rather than bombs, this one's not as nasty as the last one.

Darmok sent this link, which is supposedly to a German page with pics of a Zalman case using heatpipes and the chassis to cool components.

Iroquois thought we Might want to check out UltimateBootCD. Has HDD diagnosis for several brands, disk management, DOS Anti-Virus, Memory tests, Overwrite/Wipe utility, partition utility, etc. all on 1 CD, and free to download. Runs off Linux images, and is a handy tool for the arsenal.

From Sniper: Athlon 64-m cpu info and ABIT IC7-MAX3 Available Now! The pricetag on the MAX3 is a bit of a killer.

Moose sent in this open-source download manager for Windows.. free of course. I never got around to using GetRight or FlashGet, but might check this one out.

Over on MadShrimps, Liquid3D has written an extensive editorial on the memory conflicts that keep haunting the Overclockers using motherboards with an I875 or I865 chipset!

Apparently Europe are shooting for the moon as well as Mars now, thanks Kerridwyn. The probe's engine uses solar panels that converts sunlight into thrust. The light is converted into electricity, which is then used to convert xenon gas atoms into ions. This tiny matter is then thrust out of the engine at high speed, providing propulsion.

Microsoft are removing activation from XP.. but only in Thai copies of Windows. Very odd, thanks Ross.

Believe it or not.. there's more news yet to come.
