MBM has a few fixes in this relatively minor update-I have released 126.96.36.199, it has a few changes:- I went for a new encryption algorithm for the 3 passwords you can store in MBM, this means you will need to re-enter them, the installer will remind you of this- Am very proud to announce support for the NForce MCP / MCP-D smbus and the AMD 768 smbus- You have now the option to enter the SMTP port, for those of us who need another then the default 25- And as some users requests you can now make the size of the meters on the dashboard smaller, this works okay on the VU and the tekst meters but might give odd results on the digital meter if you make it to smallAlexLinkage-MBM
Tell your friends! Tell your family!! I'm giving away an all copper Vantec heatsink. Yep, the one with the VERY loud delta fan on it. I use it, it is great. So, what do you need todo for this contest? Just be a registered user and participate in the forums and such. The drawing will be held next month sometime!! Good luck everyone!
THG has an updated review of the Radeon 8500 using the new v7206 drivers. It would seem ATI is improving in the driver department these days and is starting to take nVidia's performance crown away. Linkage-THG
That's right folks, another security update is available from M$ for IE6 to prevent a malicious user from tampering with your cookies. (Who is this guy malicious they keep mentioning anyway?) You know the drill and where to get it.....
A seriously sad day is at hand in China these days as 17K cafes got closed down for failing to block subversive sites. That includes foreign news. I guess someone forgot to mention to the Chinese gov't that foreign news sites are in languages other than chinese. Doh! Linkage at The Register
This is taken from X-bit Labs... As we learned, the first Pentium 4 processors for the mobile PCs should be launched in February 2002. In this respect, we thought that these CPUs would be showcased at COMDEX Fall/2001, but we were mistaken. They only had a single Mobile Pentium 4 prototype working at 1.6GHz on the mobile i845 based platform supporting PC2100 DDR SDRAM. Thank goodness they had at least a prototype over there...At the same time, Intel confirmed their desire to launch these CPUs within Q1’02. they are expected to work at 1.4GHz-1.7GHz core clock frequencies, which corresponds to what we have already told you before.
I saw on ViaArena that John has completed an article on the SV24 and what happened when he went to LANFEST with it. I'd love to get my hands on the SV24. For laughs, he removed the heatsink of the C3 CPU... Check it out here.
A review of the upcoming Duron 1200 is afoot over at THG. I believe that this new offering from AMD is going to be made available come monday, at least officially. A quick seach over at pricewatch turned up only 1 vendor stating delivery at the end of Nov. for $105
Here's a few screenshots of the new Castle Wolfenstein from over at the nVidia site. It's looking to be a really sharp looking game so far. I just hope that the gameplay is as good as the graphics, but knowing the boys at id, they will put out a winner as they always do. I can't wait to feed my GF3 this little piece of software!
