The Mozilla boys do Mozilla+Firefox+Thunderbird. They may do more than that, but thats about all I follow. Once you get the hang of Fire Fox, It's nice. Then again, I'm now using Opera, go figure!

DDR-3 The Future sooner than later?

Couple weeks back I was reading some obscure article about DDR-3 somewhere. The basic jist of the article was how well DDR-3 is working out. They aren't having all the problems with it like they were with DDR-2 when they first started working on it. Speed looked good and if I recall they can hit 160...

X bit labs had a little bit of info about it in their coverage of IDF. I think its a good idea. Even with cooler running chips in the future, multi cores will still add up the total thermal load. Air will only go so far. Fluid cooling is the next logical step. I don't know what happened in regards t...

I'm curious. Why Mozilla? I use to use Netscape for a lot of years, but once Bill Gates got his hannds on Netscape via the AOL deal, well, most knew where Netscape was headed. Hence some of the old Netscape boys started up the Mozilla foundation. So , I switched to Mozilla. The new Mozilla team then...

Well, I took the whole computer into the shop.

Well still don't know what happened, but the hard drive had to be reprogramed with windows. Couldn't save my data either, that sucks. There was no partition left there or something.

Wow! Intel has come a long way in a short time. Conroe seems to be real, not hype. 450 mm wafer production coming. Moving from .65->-.45->-.32 mfg process. New CPUs in the future that will only need 200 mv to operate. Wait a minute, I also remember couple years back reading about the future. Single ...

Intel future- Pentium M core

So, the future of Intel was not meant to be the P4, but back along the lines of the P3 family. More interesting, the M core. I can remember reading several years ago how some folks were suggesting to Intel they ditch the P4 in favour of the Pentium M in the desktop. At last, this is good. I'm lookin...

In my marathon Doom 3 ROE game fest that "I forced myself to play" for OCing testing, I found this out about the Koolance auto fan speed settings.
