We are currently testing Sapphire´s Toxic RADEON X800 PRO VIVO 256MB AGP graphics card. It has 12 pipelines, slightly increased clock rates (500/1040 MHz vs. 475/900 MHz), glowing cooler. This card bases on X800XT with its 1.6ns memory and 16 pipelines. Therefore patching it with X800XT BIOS enable all 16 pipelines and X800XT clock rates of 520/1120 MHz.

Congratulations on the Sysadmin Day!

Dear sysadmins! And also sysadmin helpers and "anykeyers"! iXBT.com and Digit-Life.com congratulates you as well as all PC specialists with the Sysadmin Day!

May your hardware be obedient, users humble and ping replies fast. We thank you for your hard work and readiness to help lam... users with their problems, be it home PC or Photoshop shortcuts.

Users remember! Sysadmin is a human being like you. He has family and his private life. Don´t rush in his room screaming about downed DNS. Chances are high that he´s already fixing it. Don´t forget to congratulate your sysadmin, yes, that one who dwells in that remote humming room. And if your admin is not at work at the moment — know that professionals have everything working even when they are away. Present him a humorous postcard, admins have nice sense of humour, really.

Wishing you all working hardware, wide channels, mutual understanding and excellent mood. Congratulations!
