Still lots of those bank scam emails going around, I've received 4 pretending to be from Westpac in the last day or so. If you get an email asking you to "confirm your details" or enter your credit card or account numbers for any reason, don't! Give your bank a ring if you think it's genuine - and call the number in the phone book, not in the email. :)

There's some Fluorinert immersion cooling happening on a norwegian site. Hva skal man så gjøre, når oppgaven er å vise fram en ikke ledende kjølevæske? Oh well, you can see what they're up to in the pictures, thanks Hans-Christian. I think OCTools' Mission Submersible series were the first articles to bring Fluorinert immersion to everyone's attention.

The AmigaOS4 Roadshow hits Melbourne this weekend, details here, thanks Boky. There's some pics from the Canberra event here, thanks Jeff.

LiquidNinjas compare seven waterblocks in their latest roundup, while SLCentral checked out a few DVD Burners.

It seems that Socket940 and Socket754, as used by current Athlon 64 chips (our review of the Athlon 64 FX-51 chip here), will be around for longer than expected. AMD have been good about keeping SocketA alive for so long so it was disappointing to hear their earlier plans for very short lifecycles, particularly for Socket940. But now they will last throughout 2004, according to xbit.

MetkuMods have a quick mod to make a cable that glows, and lets you use an Xbox controller on your PC.

Want to make your LAN party comps a bit more organised? Lan-In-A-Box allows you to run a ladder or single elimination competition for any game. It's been updated recently and it's free.

Sudhian have been raiding Raptors. So did we, here back in June.

FlamingShrubs want to show you how to build a Storage Server on the cheap.

Hot cars and hot babes are the order of the day for TheTechZone, with their SEMA Show coverage posted. It's apparently the largest specialty automotive accessories trade show in the world. If that doesn't satisfy you, Smack01 went to the Auto Salon Final Battle in Sydney on the weekend and took lots of pics. A lot of much nicer paintjobs than my toy has!
