Our Alex rating has dropped again! It dropped from 20,402 to 19,430.
Take note that once site's drop under 20 000, the competition heats up and the gains are usually very low.

The supplier asked that we run this poll to work out if production of the badges will be worth it or not. Thanks!

Would you like to... Get all the latest hardware free to play around with? Get your name and picture exposed to a huge audience? Well if that is you, we are looking for someone to write regular informative articles and guides on TweakTown - We need somebody who is knowledgeable with everything to do with computers (specifically tweaking and overclocking) and is able to put it into words effectively. If you believe you are the person for the position, please contact me with your application.
It's my pleasure to announce that through CafePress we can now offer everyone our very own merchandise - Jumpers, coffee mugs, mousepads, boxer shorts - It's all there, even mini TweakTown basketball hoops! The prices aren't particularly cheaper, but nor is the quality of the products and your supporting TweakTown either way.
You've asked before it in the past, now you can have it - TweakTown Merchandise for sale here!
It's that time again. Sydney is hosting the IT Comdex 2002 show at Darling Harbour in the grand old Exhibition centre from Tuesday 5th till Thursday 7th of this month.
This year we have a more active role in the show. Located at the Kingmax Technology stand (Hall 4 Stand H25) we will be demonstrating a full system show casing the benefits of DDR-333 memory to the masses in a joint initiative.
I will be attending for the full three days and Asher "Acid" Mosses will be attending the Wednesday session. If you are in the neighbourhood, feel free to come and visit us - We always love to meet the people that have made us what we are today.
The forums are back online after some short down time due to a database error. Some posts have been lost and if you registered on the 22nd of December 2001 or after you will need to register again. So grab a coffee and come join us in the forums!
Mike "Darthtanion" Wright has gotten hold of a new heatsink that is made by the premiere case company, Antec. Can it hang with the big boys? There's only one way to find out, and that's to check out TweakTown's latest review covering the Antec Jet Cool HSF.
Also, make sure to check out our newest writers' very first article! Sevan "Starchild" Ismailian has posted a piece entitled "Windows XP Preview", so go see what he thinks of this OS of the Future.
Just a quick update today, Osiris and FiReBLaZR from the forums have created some new TweakTown wallpapers for your viewing pleasure. I have added them both to the wallpaper section for all to download, check them out here - Top work guys! :)
Just recently we have been looking into the possibilities of having available our very own TweakTown Merchandise - This includes; t-shirts, jumpers, mugs, beer steins, caps, mouse pads, boxer shorts and tote bags and so on. The products will be produced by a third party company in the United States who have international shipping available, considering the majority of our reader base is American.
I would like to encourage all interested to vote in the TweakTown Forums - All profits gained from sales will be feed back into the hosting costs of TweakTown and other costs we may incur. If there is enough interest shown, chances are we will be holding a design contest for the logo or design to appear on all the merchandise products. Thanks for your time!
The largest tel co in Australia, also one of the biggest Internet providers in Australia, people using Telstra Internet services and the network as a whole cannot access TweakTown - This includes my school which uses a Telstra ISDN line, Telstra cable users, Telstra ADSL users and so on. I'm not sure why this problem is, but I've got some feedback on this issue - Loyal readers have even been swapping ISP's so they can access TweakTown as per usual. I will be contacting Telstra shortly so we can try and resolve this problem together. If people are changing ISP's, I think it is a big enough problem for Telstra to take responsibility and take the required action to fix the problem.
I have since got in contact with Telstra and after talking on the phone with them for about a half an hour they will "check it out and see what they can do...". I don't know if this means anything at all, but at least they will check it out, I hope. If you are a Telstra Internet user and cannot access TweakTown, you can contact Telstra Internet Services on 131 282 anytime, which may just get them to take some action.
Update - Well it seems Telstra have fixed the problem. Lord Skippy let me know just recently that he can now access TweakTown, and he is a Telstra Internet customer. Good news, thanks go out to Telstra for fixing the problem.
Hi all you overclockers and Hardware nuts out there. If you happen to be at the Melbourne IT expo starting this Wednesday head on over to the Kingmax stand to see the TweakTown DDR box in action and get a hands on experience at DDR SDRAM technology.
