A few people pointed out that DetonatorXP v30.82 drivers are now available.. but only Freestyler included a link. :)

Apparently Mitac is buying Tyan, famous for their workstation and server-class motherboards.

Interesting approach to watercooling from HP: What's novel is the way they are doing it: adapting an inkjet printer head to spray a fine mist of liquid on an overheating semiconductor, and using a mobile robot to look for "hot spots" in a data center. .. thanks Gaz.

ZeUSS says: Asus have skipped a couple of revisions of drivers for the A7V333 mobo - they jumped from 1008 to 1011, available here.

Telstra has bought $3.3M worth of wireless network.. interesting, thanks Stanza.

TomsHardware compared a few 21inch CRT monitors.. mmm, I can feel the tumours growing already.

JimX spotted this daily driver car.. if you want to play GTA3 in real life. At the other end of the scale, here's the ultimate bike accessory, thanks Dave.

GamePC compared a few SMP motherboards.

Interesting one from Troy: Its now confirmed (I got a phone call from the Production Manager of Village Roadshow this evening) .... Lord of the Rings production in QLD, NSW, and WA have had problems... the DVD wont play in some / most XBoxes, PS2s, and PCs with decoder cards. Something to do with the bufferning of the DVD. You can take the DVD back to place of purchase (where they will be returned to Villiage Roadshow) who will credit you. Next week they will have out a fixed version of the DVD - they suggest getting the video shop / store to test the dvd in an xbox or ps2 to confirm it is a fixed DVD.

Another timewasting game mentioned in this thread.. playing with gravity. Spot the link to Spaced Penguin in there too, that game inhaled a serious amount of OCAU'ers time a few months ago.

Hmm, time for some Agg's Eggs, I think.
