Bit of a bike weekend.. a few laps of the national park (very burnt), ripped the fairings off and installed some frame protectors.. nice to get away from the PC sometimes.

Dean spotted the top story of tonight, AOL may buy RedHat, makers of a popular Linux distribution. Hmm, not sure how I feel about that, could be good or bad.

OCNZ have an AMD DDR motherboard shootout.

There's a BBQ in Tassie for OCAU folks. There's also a LAN coming up in Darwin.

It's normally Japan that gets the scoop on new PC bits, but Chris has spotted some goings-on in France.. or at least in French. Abit's KX7-333 mentioned in a store's catalog there (ok, they could just be over-eager) and the GeForce4 MX440 cards from Leadtek and Abit mentioned on the french version of TomsHardware.

Sabrtooth found this guide to calibrating your thermal diode on ArcticSilver's site.

Hexus have some info on a home-made watercooling project. Meanwhile, Bit-Tech have a clear-case project.

There's a contest to win a sound card here, no forum spammage required, doesn't say anything about international entrants.

Found this article in my wanderings.. scientists have discovered organisms that don't need sunlight or oxygen to live, suggesting that planets we consider hostile to life may in fact be habitable by creatures very different to ourselves.

Digit-Life have a roundup of five 24x IDE CDRW drives.

Ungrateful Ninja spotted this very cool site with ultra-high-magnification pictures of images hidden inside integrated circuit designs. Cars, comic characters, mythical animals.. even a picture of Thor, the Norse god of thunder, after which our new server is named.
