Paul noticed these DVD-detecting sniffer dogs now being used. More info here and here.

LegionHW looked at overclocked gaming performance from an Intel Pentium D 805 and a P4 630. This article will compare both processors at their standard frequencies and of course their maximum stable overclocked frequency using air-cooling. Keeping in mind the P4 630 does cost roughly $30 US more, is it worth purchasing when the Pentium D 805 is now readily available?

HoJu spotted some info on sugar-powered rockets.. info here, here and here.

PCMech explain how disk encryption works. If you want your private information to remain private, you must take steps to keep it so.

Darkness sent in this Hellgate: London trailer. Scary stuff.. impressive CGI. 28MB zip.
