Happy 50th birthday Jab!

Something different from Edward: My team have put together a short survey regarding the Victoria Police website in order to gain a better understanding of our audience and their needs. This is a good chance for people (and OCAU members) to have their say on what information and services they would like to have access to on our website. We do welcome responses from outside of Victoria, and the end results may be shared with other state police departments therefore hopefully having a positive influence on their services as well.

XbitLabs compared two high end CPU coolers in a battle of TEC vs Air. So we have every right to call our today’s test session not a super-cooler battle, but Ultra-cooler battle.

Madshrimps meanwhile decided to improve the Scythe Infinity for more extreme cooling. As the heat output increases the extra cooling power of the modded Infinity shines through, starting out with a difference of 2°C at 2.4Ghz it goes up to 6°C at 3.6Ghz quite a nice difference.

Toe2toe spotted this interesting page with a history of CPUs, discussion in this thread. The 6x86 began to earn brand recognition, and in mid-year the new 6x86-200 became the fastest chip on the market. This was a huge boost to the company, and Cyrix sales went through the roof.

HardSpell checked out 6 hot CPUs in 3 hot games. Somewhat odd english but you can work it out, lots of pics etc.

Darkness is very excited about this new game: Set for release in July 2007, Ultimate Duck Hunting is a realistic hunting simulation that features both shooting and retrieving. Choose your dog (yellow, chocolate, or black Labrador retriever) and train him to respond to your commands, all controlled by player motions using the Wii Remote™. Gear up with name-brand guns, camouflage, and decoys – then it’s off into the wilderness to set up decoys, use duck calls, and ultimately become a crack shot using the Wii Remote to aim and fire at tough-to-down mallard, hen, black, and teal ducks. He goes on to say Just about any gamer should remember the old duckhunt game for NES! Righto then. :)

Today's timewaster from MDKKnD: Not sure if this has been posted before but check out The Greatest Nintendo Games of All Times - Playable Directly In Your Browser! Java based NES emulator For the win.
