Some people who bought Borderlands on Steam have been surprised by a Duke Nukem Forever Demo Key turning up unannounced, thanks Avatar. To check and see if you have a key, find Borderlands in your Steam Library and click the "CD Key" link in the game pane. If you've got the key, it should show up as "Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club Code". If you're out of luck, you can still check out DNF at the Mana Bar in Brisbane this Saturday, thanks Blinky.

NASA is dismantling Shuttle infrastructure at Pad 39B. Workers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center have begun removing pieces of the space shuttle’s Rotating Service Structure at Launch Pad 39B as part of an ongoing demolition project aimed at creating a clean, multi-use pad for future government and commercial vehicles.

Moda spotted this case mod with heat-activated louvres. When the Arduino detects the temperature changing, it automatically actuates the servo to raise or lower the louvers accordingly, and the rig features a pair of supercapacitors that can store enough power to close the vents even if power is lost.

Western Digital are celebrating their 40th Anniversary by looking for Australia's oldest working WD drive. In line with Western Digital’s 40th anniversary, WD in Australia is showcasing a unique collection of WD products compiled in Australia over the past decade. This Australian collection is exceptional with a near complete range of WD’s hard drives, since the year 2000. Assembled by a long-time consultant and fan of the company actual photos and details of the collection have been unveiled at the new WD Australia Facebook page.

The struggle to introduce Australia's ACTA continues. The release of what has been described as the 'final draft' of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) came as some relief to the service provider community, particularly after some of the more draconian suggestions in previous drafts appeared to have been scrapped.

I recieved a bizarre press-release from Gigabyte: they have opened the world's highest RMA centre in Lhasa, Tibet. As the political, economic, cultural and religious center of Tibet, Lhasa is famed as ‘the City of Sunshine’ and is a hot spot for tourists. However, its remoteness and traffic-laden roads often make life difficult for locals because services such as RMA need to be sent to distant Chengdu as part of a process that can take longer than a month.
