Sciby noticed that the RAAF has a YouTube channel with some interesting videos including this one about the trusty C-130 Hercules working in the Middle East.

Assuming you only read Playboy for the articles, you can now do so safely at work. Playboy Enterprises Inc launched a website today which swears will be safe to browse while at work, eliminating the need for men to throw themselves over their computer screen when the boss walks by. You'll still have to do that while playing WoW at work, though.

FOTW sent in this neato knife made from fibre optic glass.

For this test we will be using not just an Intel Core i7 processor, but also the Core i5, Core 2 Quad and AMD Phenom II X4 processors, which will give us a good idea of just how core dependent each series is in order to deliver maximum performance.

Paul spotted a warning of some malware on Dell motherboards. In response a Dell support staffer said there was an issue with a small number of service motherboard stock - new PowerEdge systems are not infected. He said the malware would not infect non-Windows servers.

JuStDaN sends word that GenConOz 2010 has been cancelled. On the eve of announcing our guest list and event schedule, we have decided that due to the current economic climate and its recent effects around the globe, that it is not financially viable to hold Gen Con Australia in 2010.

Mad Mike sent in this cool physics demo video. Worth full-screening!
