ArsTechnica are finally catching up to us: they have an article on peltiers up. :)

FiringSquad have reviewed the Asus K7V Athlon motherboard here. It's another KX133 jobbie.

TC dropped me a note to say he had some trouble with the VOS-32 blocking some slots on his P3-equipped BE6-II - I had to cut the fins that the fans mount to down by 8mm as they were in the way of dimm slot 2. Something to bear in mind if you're looking at that combo.

I found this page with zillions of Athlon-related links on it today. Probably a bookmark for some of you..

Dan's taken a look at the Diamond Viper II. This is based on S3's Savage 2000 chipset. He's none too impressed with it.

Kyle from HardOCP, also known as "The Slayer of KA7's", has some info on the main page there about a program you can use to adjust the In-Order Queue depth on VIA boards. This setting has been blamed for a lot of the memory performance hit on those boards, this might let you adjust it even if your BIOS doesn't. I've looked at the page but can't find specific VIA chipset info, only i820. Apparently WCREDIT is the prog you're after. You're on your own for now.

Here's another everglide review.

This might be cool, but it might just be vapour. It looks like a gameboy but runs Quake3, UT, Tomb Raider, Homeworld etc..

Apparently on page 49 of the current "Computer Market" magazine is a very funny article titled "The Dangers of Overclocking".. I've not seen it but Michael reckons it's a good read. Go check it out in your newsagent. :)

Finally, YYK sent this in:

There's this young single guy on a cruise ship, having the time of his life. On the second day of the cruise, the ship slams into an iceberg and begins to sink. Passengers around him are screaming, flailing, and drowning, but our guy manages to grab on to a piece of driftwood and, using every last ounce of strength, swims a few miles through the shark-infested sea to a remote, deserted island.

Sprawled on the shore nearly passed out from exhaustion, he turns his head and sees a woman lying near him, unconscious, barely breathing. She's also managed to wash up on shore from the sinking ship. He makes his way to her, and with some mouth-to-mouth assistance, he manages to get her breathing again. She looks up at him, wide-eyed and grateful, "My God, you saved my life!" He suddenly realizes the woman is Cindy Crawford!

Days and weeks go by. Cindy and our guy are living on the island together. They've set up a hut, there's fruit on the trees, and they're in heaven. Cindy's fallen madly in love with our man, and they're making passionate love morning, noon, and night.

Alas, one day she notices he's looking kind of glum. "What's the matter, sweetheart?" she asks, "We have a wonderful life together, and I'm in love with you. Is there something wrong? Is there anything I can do?"

He says, "Actually, Cin, there is. Would you mind, um, putting on my shirt?"

"Uh, sure," she says, "if this will help." He takes off his shirt, and she puts it on.

"Now would you put on my pants?" he asks.

"Sure, honey, if it's really going to make you feel better," she says.

"Um, OK, would you put on my hat now and draw a little mustache on your face?"

"Whatever you want, honey," she says, and does.

Then he says, "Now, would you start walking around the edge of the island?"

She starts walking around the perimeter of the island. He sets off in the other direction. They meet up halfway around the island a few minutes later. He rushes up to her, grabs her by the shoulders, and says, "Dude! You'll never believe who I'm sleeping with!"
