From Kildare: Huge congratulations to the crew from Atomic for winning the 6th installment of Battle@Matchrix defeating Team OCAU. It was a great night with OCAU (Overclockers Australia) taking the Call of Duty face off however Atomic proved to be too strong cleaning up in both the Desert Combat & Battlefield Vietnam matches. Stay tuned for full results & photos & thanks again for all those who attended & event sponsor AMD. You see, this is what happens when Team OCAU doesn't have me barking orders at them in Desert Combat. :) More info in this Matchrix thread and this OCAU thread with photo.

A couple of days ago marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Alan Turing, widely regarded as the father of modern computing.

Longstanding friend of OCAU "VooDoo" has a new project up, www.v8owners.com, dedicated to V8 owners of any type. Ie Holdens, Ford, Toyota etc. We have articles coming covering all types of modifications, News, Reviews and industry gossip. If two wheels is more your style, check out the OCAU Motorcycle Club.

Computex coverage continues, on Ninjalane and HWZ.

XtremeResources compared the Asetek Vapochill LS and nVentiv Mach II GT vapour phase-change cooling systems. If you decide you like the nVentive unit and want to buy one, if the rumours of their recent financial demise are true, you may be too late.

BleedinEdge reckon that their Shuttle needed shushing, with the little PC running too hot and loud for their tastes - so they modded it.

From Bern: ATi have quietly released Version 3.9.0 of their linux drivers here.

Today's taste of the bizarre is this Flash recreation of classic horror flick The Exorcist, in 30 seconds, with bunnies. The Titanic one is pretty funny too. Blame Darcy.

HWAnalysis have a mild rant about product launches of the paper variety.

Chris noticed this Register story about the RIAA wanting your fingerprints.

CDFreaks have a preview look at a 16x DVD+R drive from BenQ.
