Our Forums passed 15,000 members today.. the member in question is called "Member15000", hmm, that's not suspicious at all. :)

Xbit have an article about using GeForce4 Ti4600 in 3DSMax, seeing if consumer-level high-powered video cards can be useful in that professional-level 3D graphics package. Digit-life see how the Quadro fares in comparison.

VooDoo notes that Ozemail ADSL may be a reality soon.

OCAU's SETI@Home Team have made it into the TOP 100 All Teams for (position #99 at the moment) and have just got our 500th member, thanks RobsGT4and DRAXX.

With all this cold weather lately, PostModern is organising a Soup Cookoff over in our Geek Food forum.

A roundup of roundups.. OCPlus compared the Epox 8KA3 and Asus A7V333.. KT333-based SocketA DDR motherboards. Meanwhile, MBReview compared Crucial PC2700 and Corsair XMS3000 memory and Tweakers compared PC1066 RDRAM vs. DDR SDRAM. SocketA HSF's get compared over on Tweaknews.

Bit-Tech have a lighted fan strobe mod happening.

With Napster and Kazaa down the gurgler, it seems AudioGalaxy could be next, thanks alx.

A spelling-mistake squatter gets hit with a USD$1.9M fine, thanks thetron.

HotHardware have some E3 Coverage posted, and so do TheTechZone. Meanwhile, Guru3D visited the AMD Tech Tour.

Apparently WinXP SP1 has some anti-piracy features in it, thanks Shizz.

Schrambo sent in this random website page. Taking idle net-surfing to a new level. :) Also, there's a Doom III preview movie out.

I thought I'd seen every caffeine-rich product (and tried most!) .. but this caffeine soap that DJ-Studd spotted takes the, err, cake.

Gary noted that Genichi Kawakami, former President and founder of Yamaha Motor Co, died Saturday, aged 90. Thanks for a lot of fun.. RIP.
