Thursday afternoon reviews and stuff (13 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 24-June-2004  17:44:22 (GMT +10) - by Wolfy

First the stuff:
It seems we can thank GMail for another free email storage upgrade, this time from HotMail.

FoderMe has started a forum thread to indicate that Boinc goes live, it's an upgrade on the SETI@Home Project.

From Neill "Just thought I should let you know the long awaited Slackware 10 final has just bean released".

IAmNotAGeek suggest that "Anybody that thinks SP2's Windows Firewall is such a large improvement had better make sure that they know all the facts".

Daniel tells us that, "Apparently the new beastie boys cd installs a virus type thing onto pcs its run on" link here.

And here are the reviews:
ATI All-in-Wonder 9600 XT vs NVIDIA Personal Cinema FX 5700 comparison over at TheTechReport, and they say that "the verdict is easy", but I guess that was to be expected.

Intel's Spring Refresh, Part II, is Sudhian's comprehensive look at some of Intel's new lineup. I was interested to see how hot the chips run and that you'll not be able to swap your CPU too many times but that "Intel guarantees the socket for twenty installations".

Cases:
Cooler Master Cavalier 4 small black HTPC over at Viper Lair.
Yeong Yang YY-5603 "Mars", and to quote 3D Velocity: "It's redder than a Baboon's back-end", and I'm not sure they really like it either.
Thermaltake Tsunami at OverclockerCafe.

Other:
Rytech Wireless Optical Mouse one page Review at ModSynergy.com, at least this one includes a recharger.
How-To Make a PVC Pipe Reservoir and save money by Overclockers Club.
