Hey, Phil Katz died a couple of days ago, the creator of PKZip.. bummer. We've all used his software, even WinZip started off as a shell for PKZip. RIP..

Dan's been playing with Palm's, he's got 'em receiving email and recording voice memos.

Here's another K7V review. This is an Athlon motherboard, KX133 chipset. They like it.

Trouble getting your ATI video to work with your Soyo SY-6VBA-133 mobo? This BIOS update may fix it.. I wonder if it'll fix the dog-slow memory performance of their recent BIOS updates too. I'm using one 3 versions old and it screams..

PeterC wrote in to say that, while Celly2 SMP does not work yet, you may be able to get away with 1x Celly2 and 1xP3E, according to (somewhere in) the powerleap forums. Presuming you can find an FSB they both work at, and a common multiplier (C2-600 and P3-900E? hmm) it may be a goer. I have run chips with different multipliers on my BP6 before (a C400 with a C366) and had some stability issues, but I've seen reports of it working flawlessly elsewhere with mismatched Cellies. Food for thought, anyway.

PCCritix have a review of the Soyo SY-6VCA mobo, Soyo's new Slot1 VIA Apollo Pro 133A offering.

This thing seems pretty cool. It's a really well-done parody MPEG of Star Wars and the Matrix in one. "Stars In Black" .. really professional quality. I'm only about 1/3 through downloading it, it's 43MB and yes, I'm on a modem too :( but worth downloading in the background or while you're mowing the lawn or something. Thanks to Poit for pointing it out..

Actually, Poit is an regular from the alt.comp.hardware.overclocking newsgroup I used to frequent. Check his site out, there's a load of good info there, water-cooling etc.

Tech-Report have another comparo between the Everglide Giganta and the Radpad.. "they're almost exactly the same, but I like this one better" :)

Microsoft have given nvidia a USD$200MIL advance payment for video chipsets for their X-Box product. I guess they really are serious about it.

An interesting article about the whole web-patent thing here. I've not read the whole thing yet but surely they need to shorten patent lengths for web stuff or software.. but then, maybe other industries will want it too (like pharmaceutical engineering, another high-paced industry) .. hmm.

There's a bunch of silly stuff on this Aussie site - scroll down to see a "portable" computer, pretty funny. :)
