I hope all of you in Australia (and any ex-pats overseas) had a good Australia Day. I know I did - BBQ for lunch, spent a few hours down at Circular Quay and the Opera House - had a great day. :) But enough about me, let's get down to the news.

Want to know how strong the Arctic Silver Thermal Epoxy is? Check this out. Thanks (and condolences) to Pat from Tech Patrol for this link.

B5lurker thinks that owners of Matrox video cards (G200, G400 and G450 series) will be pleased to know I'm sure that there are new official drivers available now.

Any of you running Norton Anti-Virus 2000 may wish to take note of the following information, supplied by Tony.
Upon doing a liveupdate of Nortons AV 2000, you have to reboot. (sometimes normal for Nortons updates).

But on the latest update, once you reboot Nortons doesn't apear (No
Autoprotect is enabled). The way I fixed it was to open Norton AV2K up, Click Options, then Reset, and Reset to defaults.

Then you have to manually re enable Email protection (if you had it running) and double check your config in your email client.

So, all of you running NAV2K, a quick check might be a good step in saving your systems from a virus infection.

CanEater pointed out that DirectX 8.0a has been released.

Dan from Dan's Data has posted a step-by-step guide to sharing an Internet connection. This article is probably more relevant to Australian readers than some others on the 'net, as Dan himself resides in Australia, and so covers the Australian systems, which can differ from those in the US and other countries.

ViaHardware have posted a guide on tweaking the memory settings on the VIA KT133 and KT133A chipset, using WPCREDIT.

EXHardware has just posted a short but sweet guide to cleaning the Thermaltake SuperOrb cooler.

Would you like to know what RAID is? What it stands for, and what benefits it offers you? If so, check out this link, courtesy of 3DRage. Not to be beaten, SystemLogic.net has posted an in-depth article on RAID technology. Seems RAID is quite the rage these days....


Mortin down at Icrontic has the "world premier review" of the new Aqua Stealth II water cooling unit be Be Cooling. Read what he has to say here.

Rizenet have posted a review of the DFI AK74-AC motherboard.

The Tech Zone has posted a review on the Global Win ISTORM.

SystemLogic.net has done a review of the Netgear RT314 DSL/Cable 4-Port Router.

Hmmm, reasonably long post tonight. I wonder if Agg realises he's paying me double-time-and-a-half for this, being a public holiday and all.... :)
