    Published: Wednesday, December 20, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I caught a glimpse of this when I followed a link from the infamously non-Netscape6 compatible site [H}ard|OCP.
    It would seem that someone on the inside leaked info about the NV20 release date and public demos. Here is a snip

    January 6-9, 2001
    NV20 "technology" demos are going to be publicly shown at Winter Consumer Electronic Show and at MacWorld but no product details will be announced at these events.

    February 27, 2001
    Product launch with full product info and product-level promotion at Intel's Developer Forum.

    It seems like yesterday when the hottest thing was the TNT2 Ultra.

  • GameSpy looks at the P4

    Published: Monday, December 18, 2000 | By: Dennis

    With these cropping up all over I'm sure everyone will become quite knowledgeable in the ways of the P4.

    This article is quite in-depth and since it's from gamespy you know it won't just be biz benchmarks.

    Published: Saturday, December 16, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Win2k SP2 is almost here. Though it is still in beta testing I am already looking forward to what it has to offer err.. fix. I still miss having added features when installing Service Packs. Then again at least my computer will work after I patch it.

  • Nvidia buys 3Dfx

    Published: Saturday, December 16, 2000 | By: Dennis

    According to this article 3Dfx will sell most of the biz to Nvidia.

    I've not been a great fan of 3Dfx products but I do admit to buying a Voodoo1 card back in the day. To bad the news hasn't done much for Nvidia's stock.

    2cpu finally got their review up on the Epox EP-D3VA. Overall it is a very good review with lots of info.

  • Personal firewalls easy to breach

    Published: Monday, December 11, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Here is a snip

    It’s one thing to rush an application to market without thinking about security. It’s another to rush a security application to market. But that’s what’s happened with several personal firewalls — a product category that was a virtual nonentity a year ago but is now standard fare for anyone on a broadband connection, including telecommuters.

    I however have a different solution. Break out that old P90 or 486, get 2 NIC's and install Linux. Then with 4 or so lines of code you have a Secure, Functional, and Free Firewall.

  • Cheats Discovered in CounterStrike

    Published: Monday, December 11, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It seems that various "cheats" have been discovered in the retail release of CounterStrike. Not that I am a big fan of CS but I know how much it sucked to get railed in mid-air by a lucky punk with a ping of 300 over and over again. He might have been good but not that good.
