This is a step by step guide on how to create a nice looking asteroid on Photoshop. It was created on Photoshop 7, but should be compatible with any other versions.

Ok, first things first.

Create a new file; about 500X500 should be fine and increase resolution to 200 pixels/inch.

Take the Polygonal lasso tool (L) (right click on it's icon to change it from default) and draw out a rough shape like the one below. This will be the main body of your asteroid.

Got a Netgear Wall Plug Ethernet Bridge?

Netgear has announced a recall of some of it's Wall Plug Ethernet Bridges. If you have one, and it has a model number of XE102 AND the serial number are XE12A32LB000001 through XE12A32LB005000 or XE12134LB005021 through XE12143LB053586, then you should contact Netgear. The plastic top could become seperated, and expose mains voltages. However, Netgear have a repair kit that can be used to prevent this from happening.

It's Microsoft Patch day again! Go run Windows Update if you haven't already today. There's a number of new patches fixing a few more holes in Windows.
More IE security woes!

An unsurprising event has occured! Someone has found more security problems with Internet Explorer. There are a number of issues that allow a malicious website to install software on the machine, add links to favourites or other areas of the machine, modify the channel links, and 'alter' the appearance of dialog boxes and other windows.

The outcome of all this is that it's possible for spyware to install itself on your computer simply by visiting a website, it's possible for a webpage to click on links in your webbrowser for you, and it's possible for a site to add itself to your favourites list without asking you.

What we recommend: Use a different browser!
This undertaking bears watching!

Hey Gizmo

First off I must apologize if this is in the wrong forum, if so then mods please move it.
Now what I was going to be saying..
Have you got any pics of your direct die cooling, how do you seal (neoprene??) Do you have a certain flow onto the core and off or is it just a sort of tank over the core?
Have made a few blocks my self but none for CPU's yet, might be an good project for me to try soon.
Heres some pics of the blocks I have made so far....
Copper N/Bridge , MOSFET for myself , S/Br and MOSFET for mates mobo and finally combined S/Bridge and SATA.
Direct die CPU sounds like a nice next project.
Gizmo's reply:
Ah, I was going to ask you if the link didn't give you the info you were looking for. I actually need to update that thread a little. I've changed my sealing system. I used to use a closed cell neoprene foam gasket. That worked ok, but it would tend to compress over time, plus water would leak out and corrode the capacitors and stuff on the top of my CPU (although it never managed to leak out onto the mobo while it was properly mounted).

So now I'm using a soft rubber gasket from, with cutouts for the surface mounts on top of the CPU. I then fill the cutouts with blutak (that blue colored putty stuff for sticking pictures and posters on the wall) to get a good watertight seal around the surface mounts. I've been using that arrangement for about two weeks now, and it seems to work real well. I'll try to get some pics and update that thread soon....

AGP eXpress slower than AGP 8x?
Written by Aidan

A chinese website by the name of "Myhard" took a good look at AGP eXpress and AGP 8x. They did a comparison using both a Radeon 9800XT as well as a Radeon 7000. What they found was somewhat suprising! Testing with 3DMark01 they found that AGP eXpress dropped the two cards back by between 20% and 28% compared to AGP 8x.

See here for more. Page three has further details!

Sun, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to show you what really happens in the world of developers. In what could be another case of viral marketing, Sun demonstrate that they actually have a developed sense of humour! Well, at least if you're into computers.

Mozilla browser flaw!
Written by Aidan   
Thursday, 08 July 2004 16:42

Those with Mozilla, Firefox or Thunderbird installed on their machines should look at getting their browsers and mail clients patched! Hot on the heals of the problems with IE comes a problem with the Mozilla browsers and mail client. The problem only affects Windows, and could just about allow an attacker to run a program that's already on the machine.

However, the folks over at Mozilla have produced a patch already, so you need not panic. Instead, point your browser over to Mozilla's site to pick up the patch.
water done properly... well sort of.

Patti posted: Anyone interested in keeping their cell phone numbers private may want to check this out.....


"Today cell phone numbers are private. That will soon change because the cell phone industry is preparing to launch the first 411 directory of cell phone numbers.  And it's the cell phone companies themselves who are writing the rules for how and when your cell phone number will be made public.  

You should have the choice to list your cell phone number, but industry-written rules don't guarantee you'll have that choice.  Legislation pending in Congress will give us control over listing our cell numbers and prohibit charging for unlisted numbers.  

But Congress has to act fast before the industry directory is rolled out later this year. Fill out the form below to tell Congress to give us control of our cell numbers and keep companies from charging us for unlisted numbers." Consumers Union
