Tweakmax have a thing on hot-swapping your BIOS here in case you flash it and something goes horribly wrong.

Big surprise, turns out Microsoft is Evil. Who woulda guessed? Some sneaky back-door thing has been discovered in IIS, their web-server product. I don't care - I use Apache and so should you.

Quite technical article on how the Athlon works here on Tweak3D.

Acer have released a laptop with no floppy, but a CD-RW drive built in. Pretty cool..

AnandTech have taken a look at the new Maxtor DiamondMax 40 UDMA/66 HDD. Pretty snappy transfer scores. Also, they check out a 64MB GeForce from a new company called Suma.

Fairly simple idea here but works well, fitting a thermal probe through the back of your slocket. His slocket already had holes but I've seen people drill through them to do the same thing.. obviously you need to not hit anything important with the drill. :)

VR-Zone have an article on popping the cover off your Athlon. Interesting in that they recommend using freeze-spray to loosen the pins that hold it together.

HardOCP has had a lot happening over the last few days. Firstly, they have some benchmarks of an AMD Thunderbird - check out the memory score in Sandra, 423/483MB/sec! Dunno about the reported 4k L2 cache though.

Also there is a quick look at the Powerleap Neo-S370 FC-PGA -> PPGA adapter.

Finally, I noticed on the HardOCP that MBM 4.17 is out. This supports the VIA 596B so P3V4X and other Via Apollo Pro 133A board owners can use this excellent proggy now. Get it here.
