John sent word of his large disk array project, with 16 60GB IDE drives. He even made a PCDB entry for it. If hardcore storage is your thing, check out our Intro to Storage Area Networks from last month.

Also from the PCDB, PhlyingPenguin's killer Linux box (cool artwork), Phat^Trance's tidily-finished fulltower and Tasmaniac's very cool midtower featuring (among other things) an LCD very similar to the one in Wolfy's article from today.

3DSpotlight have a Socket Cooler Roundup posted.

Dennis_B has posted a multiplier modification guide in the forums, detailing how to cut bridges by shorting them out with a power-supply.. errrm! A little scary for my tastes, must be getting soft in my old age.

Also in the forums, MWP has put up into on his modified Rio800 pump for watercooling. These things are pretty loud by default - I mentioned my dissapointment in my original watercooling article, because on the box it says "Silent Operation" and it's anything but. Anyway, MWP has some cool ideas to make it quieter.

Ever been sucked into Popup Hell, where you can't get out of the cycle of automatically-opening websites pushing dodgy stuff into your face? Seems the USA are taking legal steps to stop this kinda thing.
