Wednesday evening, via multilink 56k dialup, w00t! (0 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 3-January-2001  21:37:29 (GMT +10) - by Sciby

Yes, that's right, Sciby has gone BEYOND plain ol' boring 56k dialup and gone the DUAL dialup... which is less than exciting. Alas, Rockhampton doesn't have ADSL or cheapish cable. At least all the pages are loading faster whilst I check them out. Onto the news...

The-Ctrl-Alt-Del.Com have sent us an email with the subject "Satisfy your sadistic needs...". I will if they send one more damn html email. Pine just can't deal with it, and my brain can't translate html code in realtime. Anyway, the aforementioned needs they were referring to are the needs you have to see a dead Athlon go up in smoke. Truely disturbing. Downloaded fairly quickly with the multilink though. :D

The ThermalTake SuperOrb is a dirty great big orb-style fan. I think they're way too big, but then I don't own one, so I'm probably biased. OC Addiction has reviewed a SuperOrb and think it rather spiffy. (still too tall :P)

Gawd, a new type of RAM called FeRAM. Most exciting. Warning: article contains the word "paradigm".

Rune, apparently, is a very popular game. I've never heard of it, but that doesn't mean a hell of a lot. 3D Spotlight has written a tweak guide for it. They say "Drivers, it is essential to get the latest drivers for you video card & sound card." I disagree, especially with the nVidia Detonator drivers, 7.17 yeek, go with v6.47, thanks to Voodoo giving me that advice I got another 250-300 points out of 3DMark 2k.

Hmmm... I think this hack has been done and reported before, but it doesn't hurt: if you own an Abit BH6 motherboard, here's a lil' tweak to give you an extra voltage boost.

Amdmb.Com (?) have updated their ATTO UL3D SCSI RAID controller review. No, I've never heard of either. No matter.

According to Whirlpool, Telstra's "AUP Monitor" isn't even offical. Thanks to Azrael.

[H]ard|OCP is taking a look back at the, *ahem* "[H]ardest of 2000". Fairy nuff, but "chipset of the year"? Hmmm...

...and welcome to OCForce, the newest overclocking website on the Internet (for the next 10 minutes at least), Kris (aka ][ellfire from IRC) will be covered in little booties and baby photo books in no time, and OC/AU wishes the happy family the best of luck. *polite applause*

If you care about consoles, you'll care about the X-Box, Microsoft's effort. Here's some offical pictures. I'll stick with my Dreamcast for now thank you very much.

Anandtech's got their grubby lil' American hands on the new Intel Celeron 800 cpu, it's the one with the 100mhz fsb. Groovy.

Gasp! More optical mice! Yes, it's true, they starting to breed and The Tech Zone has reviewed of the Logitech strains. Thanks to Malleus

It seems that Microsloth is being sued (surprise surprise) for being racist. Hmmmm... perhaps they weren't employed because they were incompetant, not because they were black. Oh well, the world just takes another turn for the worse.
