ARNnet have a preview of Longhorn, Windows 2006. "Internet Explorer, meanwhile, at last includes a pop-up blocker just as every other Web browser in the world does, as well as plug-in and download managers and a convenient tracks-covering feature that clears all cache, cookie, history, and personal data." About time too. Read the article here. Thanks FuXToR.

Here's a good way to share your Internet connection with your neighbor, even if he's 35Kms away. From patto.

Draffa says "The Prequel to Babylon 5: I've Found Her, Danger and Opportunity, has been officially abandoned by Space Dream Works and released to the public. It's playable, has realistic physics and is (obviously) located in the Babylon 5 universe. Grab the file from their download page or from Fileshack."

Banshee points out that the Catalyst 3.10 Drivers are available.
