Ack, it's one of those late-night-with-an-early-morning-ahead news posts. You know you love them..

]-[ellfire pointed out these counter strike flash movies that are apparently quite funny. I can't comment, havn't watched them. On the subject of games, I've been playing a bit of Max Payne recently.. not a bad game at all, but I don't think it really lives up to all the hype. Or maybe it's just a victim of my if-its-not-cs-it-sucks theory.

Also on humerous OT stuff, Paul noted these little, ok, REALLY little silicon etchings on microchips. There are more here if that sort of stuff does it for you. If not, I'm sure you might, for a moment, find some amusement in wasarrested.com.. even if it's only in tricking your mates. Cheers to Andrew.

Anantech has a WindowsXP RC1: revisted article up.. they wrote they OS off pretty badly in the original article - do they reign themselves in again, or did they find more things that suck? I don't know, I'm too tired to check. Off you go :)

For all the case modding mad men out there, ProCooling have a handy little guide on how to get your case as shiny as a car. A new car. That's seriously shiny. Almost that shiny.

klif sent in this article which talks about CRT technology picking up it's game to really take it to the new LCD technology starting to make a decent showing for itself..

Andys sends in this italian article that covers a few benchies on the Tualatin core, a 1.26GHz part with 512k of cache. It really takes it up to the Pentium4, and with a 0.13u die process it might be a decent overclocker as well. Proof is in the pudding.

Finally tonight, over in the forums I noticed a few case modding projects starting to come to completion: Rex has a fairly tricked out black blue and green system with more fan grills than you can poke a neon at, and it seems that he is going gold for his next coat of paint on his case. Holden "Tiger" Gold in fact.. that horn orangey color you see SS commodores in. Nice.
