Apparently, the FTC has decided that the 'Do not e-mail' list would be worthless

"Any 'do not e-mail' registry would be 'ineffective and burdensome to consumers,' FTC Chairman Tim Muris told reporters at a press conference. 'Consumers will be spammed if we do a registry and spammed if we do not.'"

Looks like AMD plans to release a dual-core processor for desktops sometime late next year. AMD of course vehemently denies that Intel's plans to bring a dual core chip out in 2005 had anything to do with their own change in plans.

Mozilla have released the newest version of Firefox (previously Firebird). Firefox 0.9 adds features such as the import of favourites, history, cookies and more from IE. Firefox also comes in at a small download of 4.7Mb, and includes a speed boost over Firefox 0.8 in rendering HTML pages.

With the worrying appearance of spyware that exploits currently unfixed security holes in IE, alternative browsers are looking more and more favourable!

Zafi virus disables firewalls and AV software

A new version of the Zafi virus has emerged, titled 'W32.Zafi.B'. One of it's features is that it can kill personal firewalls and antivirus programs in order to help itself spread.

It spreads itself via email, using various '.pif', '.exe' and '.com' attachments. Once it infects a machine, it harvests addresses from the address book on the system, and emails itself to those users. It also disables programs such as the task manager and the registry editor.

So, don't trust any attachments that come via email, and ensure your antivirus software is up to date!

If you haven't checked it out yet, its definitly worth the click.

"The project was hatched over a year ago, inspired by vintage British sci-fi, with the goal to create a clear-cased computer where everything on the inside looked as good as the outside, and from all angles; Where cabling was a feature, not something to hide away - G-gnome's 'big electronic brain' if you will. I wanted to take the concept of a clear case a step further. It meant modding pretty much every nut, bolt, screw, cover, cable and component in the entire system, 'attention to detail' becoming my mantra."

Got the Watercooling bug!

Well after much deliberation I decided to take the plunge into the murky world of watercooling.

As it was my first outing I opted for a simple "plug and play" kit from Asetek, a KT12-L20 with CPU, Chipset and VGA waterblocks. Apart from a minor bit of case modding to get the radiator properly mounted it was pretty simple really.

Gizmo has updated his thermal diode mod for the NF7-S. His updated mod reconnects the Attansic over temperature sensor, so that you can read the thermal diode from MBM AND continue to have protection against overheating CPUs.
