Craig spotted some early news on a hacked DX10 project, which will allegedly allow it to run on WinXP and even DX9 hardware. Seems pretty out there. There's some discussion on Slashdot here.

MadShrimps compared 21 mousepads in their latest article. During a period of over 5 weeks I compared 21 mouse pads while I did AutoCad work, Photoshop manipulations, web browsing, Office work and of course gaming.

LegionHW compared the GeForce 8600GT and 7600GT cards. For those with GeForce 7600 GT graphics cards the idea of an 8600 GT sounds like an excellent excuse to upgrade, but is it worth your time? We find out. 8600GT review here on PCPerspective, too.

There's a nice Japanese wooden PC mod on Bit-Tech.

Sniper spotted this interesting article about a galactic explanation for the rise and fall of species on Earth. In particular, our Sun moves toward and away from the Milky Way's center, and also up and down through the galactic plane. One complete up-and-down cycle takes 64 million years- suspiciously similar to Earth's biodiversity cycle.

A few people sent in this nazi robot video. Sadly I'm capped so can't see it, but sounds interesting. :)
