There's yet another nasty virus doing the rounds - thanks to everyone who let us know. Info in this thread and here on Symantec's site. Based on the sheer number of emails I'm receiving, it looks like a LOT of people are infected already. Don't open attachments from strangers! Even if it is from someone you know, be suspicious of attachments, perhaps replying and confirming them with the sender before opening them.

Motherboards.org seem to be confused, because they're comparing video cards today. Asus's Radeon 9800XT vs Gigabyte's GeForce FX5950 Ultra. FlamingShrubs save the day by actually comparing two nForce 2 Ultra 400 motherboards.

There's a detailed guide here about installing Slackware Linux.

There's a new version of CPU-Z, a handy little CPU/motherboard information program.

Microsoft have made their Windows Services for Unix freely available. With Windows Services for UNIX 3.5, IT professionals can transfer UNIX-based tools and utilities they are already familiar with to the Windows platform. Interesting.

This guy ate nothing but McDonalds for 30 days.. unsurprisingly, it didn't do him much good.

OnlyNewZ have compared WinXP SP1 with SP2 in terms of performance.

SimoT sent in this article which is about computers knowing how people feel and using that information to help make decisions. Interesting stuff, but pretty scary if you ask me.

FiringSquad compared ATI's new 4.1 drivers to the older 3.10 version and explained their somewhat confusing numbering system.

TomsHardware checked out some DVD burners - four, from Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.

Dan has reviewed a few mouse mats.. which involved setting bits of them on fire, naturally.
