Heard a rather interesting bit of gossip this morning.. a mate is having his Optus@Home service temporarily suspended for two weeks for breaching the AUP.. but not for choking the NetStats, and not for leeching illegal software.. but for running too many services! I'm sure we're all aware that you're not allowed to run any servers on your PC connected to o@h, but it's never stopped anyone before.. It must be said that he was running quite a few services.. but even still. Hope they don't ping anyone for running telnetd/sshd.. let this be a warning - tighten up your boxes!

Top of the box this morning was CaseJunkiez review of some new rounded IDE cables that I've seen around the local PC shops.. they're functionaly the same as all other IDE cables, except they're rounded and then wrapped with braided wire and stuffed into a clear tube with clear boots.. look fairly ricey, but I know that some of you are into that sort of thing.

Dan has checked out a German product with a silly name: NoiseControl NoVibesIII. Good use for it tho, it has rubber rails that you mount your HDD onto designed to reduce vibration noise.. sounds good. I know a lot of us are starting to become obsessed with quiet PC's..

John Gatt from VIA points out that a new VIA technical support site called ViaArena has just gone live.. the idea of it is to get all the Drivers, Technical Support and Knowledge Base info into one central place for all VIA users to take advantage of.. the best part for VIA users is that there are forums that are monitored daily by VIA staff to answer your questions.

Judd pointed out the World Superbike results from last night.. Which you'll have to click through to find out.. because I'm sure there are a few of you that havn't seen it yet and don't want to have their fun spoilt.. countless others have told me that Lleyton Hewitt took out the US Open this morning.. just on bikes, Tony points out the longest motorbike in the world is up for auction on EBay.. Guiness Book of Records certified and all!

In case you wern't aware, today is Monday. That means a new issue of ZZZ Online.

JSIHardware has a quick guide to modding your case to add some wheels.. good if it is so borg that you cant carry it.

Finally this morning, Herbo points out this article showing you how to Voltage mod your shiny new $700 GeForce3 card.
