Xbit looked in detail at the i845G and i845GL integrated graphics and compared it to previous onboard video for P4's.

Kaan passed on this message from a mailing list: I've got hold of a copy of the DirectX 9 SDK beta. It comes with the interesting warning: This beta version expires on Aug 20, 2002. You will need to reinstall Windows if you do not have a valid DX9 ID & password to download Beta 2.

Ever wondered what's inside those "magic 8 ball" things? Me neither. But Heist did, and now he knows.

From Judd: This German guy (link fixed!) has managed to overclock a dual P4 Xeon Prestonia Board from 2.2 Ghz to 2.8 Ghz, and it SMOKES an 8-way PIII Xeon and a dual Athlon MP !!

1000 gamers in a LAN for 5 days.. craziness, reported by LanAddict.

T[H]ug says: The Cureinfo project has been scrapped, but the makers of it have released a new program called Samurize. It is only
in its alpha stages atm though, but can be worth a look.
I had no idea what he was talking about either, until I read the page.. Samurize is an system monitoring application for Win2k/WinXp, that can display information about your system right on your desktop, and uses almost no memory! Ah-ha.

From Iroquois: New P2P program, offering only OpenSource content. "it is a controlled content delivery network for open source and public domain content" - here.

MrW spotted some Intel specs for their Itanium 2 CPU.

AMDWorld have an article about RAMBUS.. and whether it lives up to claims.

Apparently IT people are poorly skilled in Australia, thanks Cryogenic.

G3D have a thermal paste showdown..

Still getting zillions of virus emails. Sjc sent a link to a free virus scanner that he reckons is really good. So now you have no excuse, download it and clean yourself up, gawd!

Apparently xbox hacking is trickier than you might think. That article is mis-using the term "hacker", but hey, how surprising.

IANAG wonder if rounded cables could be bad for data integrity.. they test by doing some CD burning.

Rob sent in the world's smallest website.. at 1280x1024 it's probably the most annoying one, too.

Xbit looked at the HPT RocketRaid 133 ATA133 RAID Controller.. we checked this out a few months ago now in our Raid0 Shootout with ATA100 and ATA133. While we're on ATA133, Hardware-TestDK reviewed a Maxtor D740X-6L ATA133 HDD, which we covered in our more recent High-End HDD Shootout.

Ages ago we linked some instructions on Yamaha's website to make a model YZF-R1 sportbike from paper. Smash3d sent word that Othy has made one and there's pics in that thread. Nice job, but you have way too much free time. :)
