Will that be sleeve or ball bearings?

  View Printable Version 
HardwareIs your box noisy? If so, the culprit is probably one of the fans inside. If you ever wondered if ball bearing fans make less noise than sleeve bearing ones, you can read this article at Comair Rotron's web site. These people make a living out of providing fans to the electronics industry, so you can rest assured they know NPEL from CFM from dB.

If you wonder what a ball bearing is, you probably shouldn't spend time wondering why it's noisy.

Baseball for the uninitiated

  View Printable Version 
Every year about this time, the entire world except the parts located outside the northern Americas, does something called "The World Series Baseball". This is an odd game, not only for the fact that most nobody ever gets to see it played, but also because it involves grownups in pajamas.

If you happen to wonder about the rules, equipment and lore surrounding this intricate ball and stick game, Dave Barry takes it on himself to explain.

FreeBSDWhile FreeBSD 4.4 ships with most services shut off per default, all kinds of strange things happen when you install software via ports, especially during first time installation. Installation of FreeBSD is - well - not the next-button-fest some other OS'es gets you involved in.

"With an abundance of commercial and free software products available, it may be difficult to choose a good product"
"Ethereal can read the data files from a multitude of other packet sniffers, letting you analyze previously collected data"

XP is here, and so are the patches

  View Printable Version 
WindowsThe day after XP was launched with much ado, there's already 20 Mb worth of updates waiting for you over at the Windows Update web site. This is ofcourse if you opted for manual download of patches when installing XP. If not, MS may already have pushed these updates in your direction and installed them on your computer.

Some of these patches are bugfixes, some plugs security holes and some bring new functionality.

Read it all on cnet.com.
