Good morning all.  Sorry if I'm later than usual with your morning news.  The past few days my Cable connection has been very slow and the folks at RoadRunner say everything looks good.  While it may look good on their end, I'm slogging along at Dialup 5x speeds.  Hopefully I can make enough noise to get something fixed, but it looks like they have the upper hand.  It's a real shame it has to be that way.  Anyway, the news is flowing this morning, so let's get down to business.

Good morning folks!  How is everybody doing today?  I take it you all had a good weekend?  It was a little wet here in good ol' NY, but things have dried out nicely.  It is absolutely awesome outside right now, sunny with a light breeze.  Come to think of it, I should fire up the WiFi and get out there.  Hold on a second... Ok, I'm back!  Wow, I could definitely get used to this.  All I have to figure out now is how to get my overclocked personal rig stable in 80 degree weather and direct sunlight.  That's something I'll have to work on later though!  For now, it's onto the news...

Good morning everyone. JeffB checking in to ring in the new weekend. Since I've started working from home, weekends have a lot less meaning than they used to, but I still look forward to them. If all goes well I will be snuggling up with a new piece of hardware this afternoon. Otherwise I think I will be getting out. Thanks to my latest addiction, Far Cry, I haven't gotten out much in the last couple of weeks. I really hate games that don't have in-game saves, but I will say that Far Cry is an exception. If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's one of the best I've ever played. Just be aware, this bad boy stresses even the most powerful systems to the brink of reboots. Little secret, turn...

Good afternoon, and welcome back HotHardware fans! We've just posted a review of the Asus DRW-0804P 8X DVD+/-R Burner.
