    Published: Wednesday, December 06, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Once again, another link to those astute Brits at The Register. Fast speed with a passive heatsink and aluminum (Pronounced AL-OO-MIN-EE-UM in England) wiring.

  • P3 SMP vs Athlon vs P4 in Win2000

    I knew that dual processor machines where the "cat's meow" when used properly. This article just gives it do us in writing with some pretty graphs.

  • Cable modems suck!

    Published: Tuesday, December 05, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Well I was stuck at 56k last night when the cable network went down. I have to admit I feel dirty. But that didn't really upset me, what did was the girl I talked to on the support line proceeded to insist that my node was bad and a technician needed to come out to check it.

    Well if that is the case why do I have access this morning? I hate them but its cheap so what the heck.

  • Deus Ex on the Dreamcast

    Published: Tuesday, December 05, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It looks as though Deus Ex might be ported to the Dreamcast in the near future. But that is not the only game. First Quake 3 Arena, Next Deus Ex and Unreal Tournament. Here is a snip.
    In an interview by Joystick, a French PC gaming magazine, the lead programmer for Deus Ex said "Concerning the PC to consoles port of Deus Ex, I'm not in charge of the port but I oversee the project." So, it looks like Deus Ex will be coming to next generation consoles! Might it come to Dreamcast? Quite possibly, especially since fellow Unreal engine game Unreal Tournament is already well underway. We'll keep you up to date with the latest happenings on this possible story"

    Could be fun,

  • Speed up Maxtor Drives

    Published: Sunday, December 03, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It would seem by this tech post at Maxtor that most of their IDE drives are released and configured to run very quiet. Bad thing is when they run quiet they also run slow. I'm in the process of converting my drives to the non-quiet setting; I'll let you know how it pans out.

  • Dual CPU with DDR support

    Published: Thursday, November 30, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It was bound to happen I just didn't think so soon. Take a look at the board and look at how it is laid out. The power connector is below the processors, and the floppy drive connector is under the last PCI slot. Not really the most effected layout.

    Considering that this board is a socket 370 I find it hard to believe.

  • P4's choke on VooDoo 5

    Published: Thursday, November 30, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Here is a bit of news for 3DFX fans. Seems the new P4s are not compatible with the V5 or V3 but are compatible with the V4. Kooky.

  • Freeway Review - another on the way

    Published: Wednesday, November 29, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It seems that the Freeway Designs motherboard review has become quite an attraction here at Ninjalane. Glad to be a part of it.
    I've been told by one of my close friends that he will be getting his hands on the new Epox EP-D3VA dullie motherboard sometime this week. So, that means you can expect a similar review of that motherboard sometime in the coming week and maybe a compairson between The Freeway Designs FWD-P3C4XD and the Epox later this next month.

  • Site update

    Published: Wednesday, November 29, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I noticed a small bug in how my URL's where being processed, it seemed that when I posted a link within my site it was still spawning another browser window. This has been fixed and shouldn't happen in the future. Sorry to all that this "bug" annoyed.

    As I told you before the holiday Ninjalane.com has broken new ground in the realm of hardware reviews. The first piece to be added to the list is the sexy red motherboard by Freeway Designs.
