QuakeCon, a big gaming convention in Texas, is on at the moment. Coverage on HardOCP, LegitReviews, Bjorn3D (and here) and TweakTown.

IANAG have a guide to removing Gator and related adware from your PC. Tons of "Free programs" install some variant of this ad serving software on your system to make that developer money.

IceTeks have a little desk modding going on. In this article we install some toggle switches right on the desk to control the fans. The PC is not stuck to the desk since the cable can be disconnected, and the computer's existing switches or fanbus can then control the fans.

Metku tried spraying some sticky stuff on PC input devices, to get more grip. Airsoft enthusiasts have been using similar products to improve grip on their airsoft guns. It should be only natural for this stuff to work on computer input devices too.

TweakTown have a guide to installing and tweaking WinXP SP2. Meanwhile, the hunt for holes in SP2 is a concern for security experts. PCStats cover slipstreaming SP2 into a WinXP install CD.

From SpN: "Britain granted its first license for human cloning Wednesday, joining South Korea on the leading edge of stem cell research". Info here and here.
