Saturday morning... *yawn*.... *scratches head*... (0 Comments) (link)
 Saturday, 20-January-2001  13:13:01 (GMT +10) - by Sciby

I really have to stop playing Counter-strike until 3am. Oh, and hello to anyone who plays Ultima Online! Yes, I've regressed in my gaming habits and gone back to my RPG'ing roots. Tis very cool, so if you see someone named Sciby wandering around the Oceania Shard, looking lost, say hello and offer lots of gold. :D

iBuyer and hardCOREware are "proud to introduce" their new Weekly Hardware Price Index. It must be said, of course, that prices are US$. As usual.

MSI has released a new BIOS for their spiffy and stable board, the K7T Pro2-A, version 2.2.

This is... er... interesting. AMD has patented a new technology called "Magic Packet". Sounds like normal old wake-on-lan to me. Thanks to GARY_J. :P

Still more from Gary_J, and still on Wake-on-LAN, here's a website that'll let you send a wakeup packet to the computer you want to be up and working.

8balls.com.my has written an article on how to get the most out of Fdisk, that happy cheap little partitioning proggie.

Overclocker Cafe has done an nVidia driver comparsion, the blurb goes:

We benchmarked all the Nvidia Detonators versions 6.32 through v7.17 with Q3A and 3Dmark 2000 v1.1 to see who rocks the hardest.

Right. "Rocks the hardest?" What kind of talk is that?

According to Insane Hardware, Hercules will be using shallower Blorbs on their new NV20-based video cards.

SystemLogic also has a price watch thingy happening. Again, USD prices. *mutter*

Holy stormy weather Batman, just heard on the radio that there were 25'000 lightning strikes in one hour last night, from a storm that went through Central Queensland last night.

It seems that certain game company isn't playing fair with reviewers. Hmmm...

More internet angst: a norwegian hardware site as been plagurising a BIOS optimization guide, from Rojak's Pot. Stealing from one is plagurism, stealing from many is research.

Teehee, some naughty, naught l33t h4xor kiddies have hit http://www.campbelltown.nsw.gov.au/. Take that, Campbelltown government suit types! Fight the power! There were no demands from the perps, apart from beer, pr0n and mp3's. *ahem* I'll put my order it too, thanks. Thanks to Manaz for hunting down this violation of basic website existance. (Manaz, will you give me beer?)
