Dan has yet more letters. I get the feeling I'm going to be saying that regularly for a long, long time.

ExtremeOverclocking have an article about server power and performance.

News bits from Joel: "In studying the effects of last summer's MSBlast worm, some security experts turned to an unlikely source in search of clues to the prevention of computer epidemics: plants." A Chicago federal judge on Wednesday upheld a $512 million patent verdict against Microsoft that could ultimately force major changes in many of the most common Internet software products. Multimedia device reads nine formats.

Browca04 noticed that WiFi on aircraft will be a reality soon, on Emirates Air anyway. The ultra-long-range A340-500 will be the first aircraft to include a wireless Local Area Network (LAN) certified for passengers' own WiFi enabled laptop computers.

Enscape have an article about wireless networking back on solid ground.

Some timewasters: an extremely poor taste but quite fun escape from neverland from Kev and Turkey Shoot from Murmur_X.
