Water Cooling

The recent hot weather coupled with my moving back to my small bedroom in Evesham has made me notice more the loud fan in my computer. This and fear that my current computer will suffer the same overheated demise of my last machine has prompted me to look into water cooling. I have just ordered a Corsair Nautilus 500 water cooling kit from Komplett. After reading two reviews it seems that should be a good purchase. The water cooling kit I will be getting. I should be able to easily fit it without removing my motherboard and expand it at a later date to also cool my graphics cards. Being easy to drain should be handy too seeing as my computer gets moved around a fair bit. How easy it is to fit will be revealed in 3-4 days...

Facebook lawyers

My picture in the Oxford Student.I recently received a cease and desist letter from the law firm representing Facebook. They had a problem with my registration of the domain name facebookquizzes.com (I had considered setting up another skinned version of QuizSender.com targeting Facebook users). I did manage to get some free advertising in an Oxford Student article though.
