A serious programming error by VMware has led to ESX machines thinking they are expired when they aren't. When the time clock in a server running ESX 3.5 or ESXi 3.5 Update 2 hits 12:00AM on August 12th, 2008, the released code causes the product license to expire. So don't reboot or suspend until you've got the patch! Discussion here.

Apparently Crysis Warhead is on the way in September. But that's not all -- also announced was Crysis Wars, a new multiplayer feature in Crysis Warhead that'll come with three modes of play: InstantAction and PowerStruggle from the original Crysis, and the new TeamInstantAction mode that, obviously, adds teams to the mix. Crysis Wars will include 21 maps in total, including six new maps for TeamInstantAction and InstantAction, and one new map for PowerStruggle.

Tweaktown compared a Single HD 4870 X2 vs Two HD 4870s on P45. Meanwhile MadShrimps checked out the 4870 X2 Crysis AA vs DX9/DX10 Performance. The increased level of detail with 4xAA doesn't really reduce performance all that much. While the GTX 280 takes a serious performance hit.

Techgage have part 2 of their ASUS Republic of Gamers coverage. The ASUS RoG Con is done and over with, so we take a look back at what made the weekend so great. Depending on who you ask, the LAN was a great success, with nobody leaving without some sort of swag in their hand. But, there was so much more to it than just that. Will we see another? We sure hope so.

IGN mention some religious hullabaloo about Spore, but more interesting is the casual remark that it's coming out in the first week of September. I thought we'd never see it! Anyway, discussion in the gargantuan Spore thread as always.

Cooler Master's Cosmos S is becoming a hit with the modders.. here's a nicely finished project over on Bit-Tech. After a second, I thought, "What better than a new Skulltrail system to prove the capability of the heavily modded Aquagate?"
