Not a whole lot going on out there at the moment, everyone seems to be relaxing.. and so they should be.

VooDoo sent word of the Cruise for a Cure, where you can have a nice drive and raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. More info in this forum thread.

ARP have an article about cooling your MOSFETs, those small hot black things in the power regulation circuitry on your motherboard. We had an article some time ago titled Pavarotti, Choir Boys and Balloons which explained some aspects of power regulation.

In today's timewaster you can make a rock band, thanks AzzKikr.

FuXToR sent in this editorial about the business of locking processors.

OCInside.de have a page that lets you see if a given heatsink/fan will fit a given socketA motherboard. It's an interesting idea, but the selection of motherboards is limited and it doesn't seem to tell you if it's going to fit or not, you just wave one picture over another picture to see if anything obviously clashes. Hmm.

The ArsMasters have an article about the scheduler in the 2.6 linux kernel. While you're playing with the new kernel on your linux box, pay some thought to securing it, too.

SilentPCReview have a heatsink roundup covering a few models for socketA and P4.

Lots of those bank scam, ebay scam, trojan-packin' virus and spammer emails doing the rounds at the moment. Be suspicious of any attachments and don't give away any personal or financial details, even if it looks like the email comes from your bank or ebay or paypal. And, to any spammers who are listening, I'm really not interested in seeing your Paris Hilton video. :)
