Gotta love 11-hour power outages..

A few people noticed that ATI have released Catalyst 6.9 drivers.

ExtremeTech have Top Tips about a range of PC-related topics. So my question is, should I make more than 1 partition? And if so should I have more than 2?

Weird Al has a new (?) song/video out called White and Nerdy, with a few funny geek references.

Battlefield 2142 has apparently gone gold now, with a release date of October 17.

Speaking of which, here's a mod that adds supersonic bullet cracks to BF2, adding to the "realism" of someone shooting at you. And remember that when you hear the crack the bullet has already passed you by so don't worry too much about it. The old saying is that "You never hear the one that hits you".

Nick spotted this exploding IBM laptop on slashdot. This used to be Alan's laptop, an IBM Thinkpad 600 with third-party batteries we bought separately: ie possibly not IBM's. Last night it exploded.

From James: Steorn energy. Steornís technology produces free, clean and constant energy. This provides a significant range of benefits, from the convenience of never having to refuel your car or recharge your mobile phone, to a genuine solution to the need for zero emission energy production. Unlike most people who make these kind of claims, they seem to be open about having their technology tested and verified. This represents a significant challenge to our current understanding of the universe and clearly such claims require independent validation from credible third parties.

DriverHeaven consider the world of MMORPG gaming. Since most of the world is only now getting proper broad band infrastructure it comes as no surprise that MMO games have only recently started to gain true popularity.

Dan has more letters. In this edition: Consoles vs PCs, remote PC control, UPS batteries and a Keyboard of Mystery.

HWZone have an interview with AMD about the merger with ATI. Hardware Zone managed to catch up with Bryan Low, the VP for Sales and Marketing in South Asia at AMD to answer our queries of the merger, current status and upcoming plans.
