The net still seems very slow. I am being routed through bbnplanet.net in Seattle in the USA.. to get to some Australian sites! Weird.

Film scanners used to reside in the domain of professional photography labs only, but have been dropping in price consistently for a while. These let you scan the negatives of your photos so you can manipulate or store them digitally. ComputerSource checked out 3 models here.

DesignTechnica have a little preview article about Electronic Ink, an interesting new display technology.

SystemLogic have updated their guide to installing a SocketA cooler. If you're wondering what cooler to use, check out our 21-way roundup from a couple of months or so ago.

The GeForce FAQ grows ever larger and has been updated, thanks XG8. If you want to tweak your TNT or GeForce-based card, RivaTuner has been updated too.

G3D have been LED-modding their keyboard.. as you do.

One case mod I like to see is when people convert big old server cases to house more modern parts. An example was added to the PCDB recently in the form of Destroyer_FF's PC which looks like an old DEC or HP server. Similar is Wildemere's modified AST Manhattan server which won our first case-mod competition at MPU ages ago. A few more case mod pics from MPU in this article. I've still got the Big Kahuna lying around the AggCave but it, along with its big brother are just too huge to be practical. One day I'll build a watercooled dual system into that box. :)

Apparently Below-0 are having some DNS problems (heh, aren't we all) but you can get to their site here while their normal domain isn't working.

Brisbane peeps who want to see high-tech goodies in modified cars should go to Auto Salon 2001 which is on this weekend, says Rasta.
