Venice Core Seems all the Rage

It seems my Venice core article has gotten quite a few links in from around the web and has gotten a lot of reads over the last couple of days.  I have gotten a lot of positive emails and the discussion in the forums is good as well.  I'm glad to see people excited about these parts again, as I know a lot of the online media is too.


I've still got a few articles in the pipeline, two of which are based around the Pentium M and two of which are graphics c

I'm sorry, but isn't that about the coolest toy you have ever seen?  And the name, "Darth Tater"?!?  Who comes up with this?  :) 


I've been caught red handed, I am a huge Star Wars fan.  As if the Mr.

Just finished up an article that is going live at 9am EST tomorrow (can you guess which?).  Turned out to be a fairly good product for the targetted platform, though you'll have to get the full details in the morning.  I just feel lucky this is the first time I have gotten an NDA'd article done before 3am or so in a long time!


Another long day for me to catch up on those reviews I promised you, but for now good night!


Worn out from the Weekend

Over this past weekend, actually from Wednesday until Sunday night, I have done nothing except move people.  One of my good friends bought a condo, and we moved what few things he had furnture-wise on Wednesday in what turned out ot be only a single day job.  My mom also moved this weekend, and that was quite a different story.  I started organizing a somewhat-packed 4 bedroom house on Thursday morning, into Friday and to Saturday afternoon.  Then the heavy lifting starting Saturday evening and went on until Sunday at about 6pm.  A big hearty thanks goes out to my f

Still plugging away at two seperate test setups trying to get them far enough along that I don't feel like I failed the entire day to complete something.  If anyone has any skills writing some complex Windows scripting to help me with some more automated testing than I already have, please email me!  Anything you want can be yours!  :)  It looks tomorrow will be pretty busy as well as I have to send a couple parts BACK to where they came in time for overnight shipping, which means by 5:30pm here.  Everything needs to be done by then, so sleep will come at the bottom

A Week Cut Short

It's a Monday night and I've been sitting in my office pretty much non stop since 10:30am.  Anyone who said the life of an online reviewer was all glam and glory, is sadly mistaken.  But at least I have all the comforts of home here, so I can't complain too much. 


I've been trying to mix up the article content that I am writing, getting away from just motherboard reviews and trying to branch out into newer, more exciting and different PC items.  The DFI 855 Pentium M article was the first in that department

It has been a stressful couple of weeks for me here; both on the site and off the site.  As I mentioned before, I am building a house in Florence, KY, to which I will hopefully move sometime this summer.

R.I.P. Voodoo Extreme's Billy Wilson

If you didn't know who Billy Wilson was, then you weren't into gaming.  If you never went to VoodooExtreme.com in its hayday, then you didn't know what you were talking about.  News reached me today that he passed away at the age of 33.  Wow, really makes you think about your own life, doesn't it? 


I talked with Billy numerous times over the years, and in conclusion, I'll leave you with a portion of an email that just shows what kind of humor this guy brought to the industry.  :)

Well, if you are here already you no doubt have seen the changes we made tonight to the entire PC Perspective website.  The forums have had a preview of this new design for some time, but it has taken us quite a long time to work out all the bugs and kinks with the site formatting to get it where we were ready to present it to you all.  Before I get into the new features and what has changed in the new PC Perspective v2.0, I'd like to take this chance to publicly and completely thank Joe White (The Wise One

Well, from the news that I have been posting over the past couple of days, it really looks like I should have gone out to CeBit in Germany this year after all. What have we seen out there that is interesting thus far? Let's see if I can remember it all:

1. 512 MB 6800 Ultra
2. Dual 6800 Ultra on a single card
3. Dual 6600GT on a single card from Asus
4. ATI's dual GPU chipset motherboards on display
5. An ECS board that allows you to have AMD or Intel processors
6. Dual core Athlon 64 live, working, with benchmarks
7.
