Hope you're all suffering from hangovers. That'll learn ya.

For all of you with a Corvette just lying about under a tarp in the backyard, here's a step-by-step guide to tubbing out the wheel wells to take 12" tyres. I couldn't do that. I don't own a corvette for a start.

Apu's Hardware had a LAN party, and they went techno-ghetto-crazy with their T1 and lan string setup. The setup downloads Counter-strike in 2.5sec (80mb worth), and requires the supervision of Chris the Cat. Just click on the link, you'll understand.

Unh... how to switch the screen layout on your HP Jornada from portrait to landscape. As you do. Not a bad thing, but as I don't own one, and no one wants to give me one, it's earned my contempt.

Here's a look at the new motherboards being produced by MSI in the first quarter of 2001. MSI's rock. Oh dear, I'd better finish the review of mine before Agg hurts me. He locks me in cupboards you know. Honestly.

Some random techo goodness from ZZZ Online.

Adrian's Rojak Pot has updated their Windows 2000 Hints and Tips guide.

Aopen has changed their front page on their Taiwan website. Anymore flashy things and we'd all be having epileptic fits. Thanks to alchemy for pointing out the Flash mind-trip.

The Guru of 3D has updated his RivaTuner util to to version 2.0, check it out. I will be later when I get my games machine up and running. I'd had a lovely lil' MX sitting in there for two-three weeks, and all I've done is run 3dmark a couple of times.

Finally, MOS Technologies has an affliate program running, and a banner design competition to go with it. Check it out, you could win a whole bunch o' Stuff™.
