First up today, Bone sent in this link where you can experience the internet in its unadulterated form, before the WWW was created. If you've been online for at least 10yrs you will remember some of the early text based browsers such as Lynx, NCSA Mosaic and the many simple line-mode browsers. USENet was where all the good stuff was to be found and Internet Advertising was unheard of. Back then I was paying AU$0.01 per minute and AU$10.00 per Mb of data for a shell account using Win3.1 and SlipKnot. Ahh, those were the days...

Anyway, back to the real (virtual) world. ARP have updated "The Definitive BIOS Optimization Guide" with details about Video BIOS Cacheable and Video BIOS Shadowing BIOS options.

Iceteks have a Linux for Newbies article which, while brief, does cover some of the things a first-time Linux user should know. EazyduzIt reckons that switching to Linux will make you a Super Villain.

OC Addiction take a step by step approach to overclocking a P4 800fsb CPU.

TechNation show you how to make and fit a custom etched window to your case.

Some good info on how to Secure Your Wireless Network over at DSLWebServer.

HardwareZone have an Athlon 64 Chipset Shootout for you to read. While the results don't hold any real surprises, they are interesting.

PCI-Express is rolling our way, slowly, and IntelForums have an introduction for those who have yet to hear about this new bus.

GideonTech have a roundup of 16 SunbeamTech products, both lighted and non-lighted items. Yay!

Some more letters from/to Dan, and this time he talks about, among other things, motherboard manuals. I think I read one of them once... never again!
