Well, hasn't it been a ripsnorter of a weekend. On Saturday the Lions walked all over Essendon, and showed the silly Victorians the proper way to play aerial ping pong, then on Sunday night the Knights walked all over the Eels with a near-perfect game. Sure, I may have assignments a-plenty due, but that was some quality footy.
Just on quality, Wokket points out that our Genome team is wiping the floor with the Anandtech team. Sure, Genome isn't AT's strongest suit.. but just judging by their server farm their readership is a bit more substernal than ours. And that's all the excuse I need to give a good pimping to our Folding and Genome teams.
I'm sure some of you remember the hyped-up Digital TV launch that occurred back in January.. and if it wasn't for those pesky THIS SHOW IS AVAILABLE IN D-I-G-I-T-A-L messages at the start of the news and other programs you probably would of forgotten about it too. If you're keen on finding out for yourself what Digital TV is actually like, Vegeta points out this page selling set-top boxes and the like. Having a look around there the reason for digital TV's small penetration becomes quiet clear.. $630 anyone?
Znipa-X points out this article in the Scientific Journal Nature which covers a recent achievement scientists have made which is bringing them one step closer to teleportation. Mmmm, just the cure for oversleeping lectures.
Xntrik points out this rather cool web mapping tool.. he explained it best to me, so I'll let him explain it.
fire it up.. and open a new URL, and map with the address "www.overclockers.com.au" and watch the
rings expand as it goes through all the links and maps them as rings.. I've attached a screenie of some of the output.. I'm thinking that if u left it for ages...it'd end out mapping quite a large chunk of the net. End's up looking rather cool in my opinion as well.
Guru3D has just released RC7.1 of their RivaTuner 2.0 util.. quite a few different versions of these nVidia tweaking tools getting around at the moment.
Finally tonight, AnandTech has info of the changing product lines coming up from nVidia.. looks like the moniker "Titanium" is going to get tacked onto the end of the GeForce3 product line, and they're going to release a suped up version as well.
