Hmm, quite a bit of the old offtopic-but-interesting stuff today.. if all goes well, there should be 2 OCAU reviews up for you today. :)

Dan's checked out some wireless spy stuff! For use as a baby monitor or watching nocturnal wildlife, he says. Suuuure, Dan.

Icrontic have sent a breathlessly excited message saying they've updated their KT133 FAQ. A fair bit of info there, I wouldn't say tonnes.. but if you're having a prob with your motherboard it might be worth checking out.

FireMoth sent in this funny pic. Not very politically correct I'm afraid, but jeez.. how embarrassing. :)

If you've got steady hands but a slow SocketA CPU, consider soldering the bridges as per overclockers.com's guide.

If you haven't got steady hands, consider becoming a cyborg. Currently only available if you're a tiny eel.. and then of course you wouldn't have hands anyway. Sorry. :)

CPUReview.com have an interesting moving to Linux article.

Seems CD-R prices will increase according to PCWorld, thanks alchemy.

Hypothermia have an interview with one of the brains behind the game "Giants".

My favourite digicam-review site, DPreview.com, have reviewed the Nikon CP995 digital camera. This is the successor to the CP990 which I've had for nearly a year now and have used extensively on this site. One of my other photographic interests is macrophotography, the technique of magnifying things using a camera - making the image larger than the actual object. The Nikon is excellent for this and it's one of the reasons I bought it. I took some photos of a (dead) spider I found on my bookshelf a few months ago and I don't think I've put them up on here yet.. so now seems as good a time as any. Be warned, if you have a spider or bug phobia, you WON'T like these pictures so move along. :) I'm not a bug freak but it seemed a good subject. Spidey1 is a wide shot showing a 20c coin for scale. Spidey2 is a front-on closeup (aww, what a cutie, not!). Spidey3 is a closeup of his eyes, looking down from the top and is colour-corrected.

Sennheiser HD570 headphones on GameSurge.. our review here.
AOpen HQ08 fulltower case on IPKonfig. This is the same as the popular HX08 but with a different faceplate.
Logitech Cordless Optical mouse on NeoSeeker.
Mushkin Revision 3 PC133 SDRAM on SystemLogic.
Hercules 3D Prophet 4500 Kyro-II based video card on Digit-Life.
Swiftech MC462-A monster socket cooler on FrostyTech.
