Well, from the logs it looks like the vast majority of people are seeing the site and the forums on the new server now. I think that's the smoothest DNS transfer I've ever seen. :) Still working on getting the PCDB back up. In the meantime, some guy in Nigeria keeps sending me email saying he wants to give me a billion gazillion dollars - how cool is that.

There's another issue of ZZZ Online posted.. aerogel, avalanche jackets and the CSIRO looking for landmines, among other things.

JATHardware have collected (or so they claim) all the overclocking and cooling reviews from 2001 into one big links page. That should keep you busy for a while..

Spectral spotted some Star Wars fans taking the whole queueing-for-tickets thing a little far.. maybe they didn't see Episode One. :)

TomsHardware had a watercooling comparison a few days ago that we seem to have missed.

SLCentral have an editorial about video game consoles.

Mike spotted this gargantuan subwoofer at MIT. It's called Mjolnir which, although it doesn't mention it on the site, is actually the Norse name for Thor's hammer.

A site called WhiningDog has some benchmark numbers for the new Prestonia P4 Xeons with hyperthreading.. that's the thing that makes them look like an SMP system even though there's only one CPU - or in this case, a quad system with only 2 CPU's.

Tony notes that surround-sound standard THX is now in cars.. just the thing for masking the distracting sounds of other car horns and screaming pedestrians.

There's a lan on the 2nd of February called Sutherlan, which I have to assume is in Sutherland, south of Sydney.
