- Kingmax DDR2 !!! Mars Attack !!!

The KINGMAX giants have announced today that they're rolling out their next generation DDR2 Mars Series memory using the latest 0.10ì original factory DDR2 chips. Also, KINGMAX has developed high-tech anti-counterfeiting measures to protect the rights of end-users by adding to each DDR2 memory module a red ASIC decoder chip, which uses our patented TinyBGA "color compound" packaging technology. Nice touch! - More details in the official KINGMAX PR.

Following on the heels of the global success of its DDR1 products, KINGMAX is now rolling out the next generation memory--KINGMAX Mars Series DDR2, using the latest 0.10ì original factory DDR2 chips, for greatly enhanced system stability. Kingmax's DDR2 memory module, with its low 1.8V voltage, reduces power consumption by approximately 50%, and is fully compliant with JEDEC specifications.

- Startup Library Launched!

Martin over at IAmNotAGeek has just put together a huge (and extremely time consuming) startup library based upon Pacman's startup list (with his permission of course). Basic search functionality is already in place but they aim to further refine it's abilities in the near future. The guide will work hand in hand with their File Help DB and at the time of their passing this on, they already had 4883 items added with an effort to update consistantly and regularly. If you're a little suspicious of the going's on with certain memory resident tasks etc. on your pc, head over here for all the support you'll need.

We've rolled out a startup library which is based upon Pacman's startup list. We were given permission to use what they've done as the basis of ours. To start things off we've added a couple of major features like an individual page for every listing of both the startup name and the process name which will be great for search engine lookup. Currently we only offer a simple search but will be adding more refined searching abilities in the future. This new guide will be going along side our File Help DB and we will be working on them both simultaneously. Currently we are sitting at 4883 items in this DB and we do expect it to grow quite a bit in the coming weeks.

If you were wondering why we had been rather quite for a while now you know why....
