RightMark CPU Clock Utility 2.30 Released

RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) is a small GUI application designed for real-time CPU frequency, throttling and load level monitoring and on-the-fly adjustment of the CPU performance level on supported CPU models via processor's power management model-specific registers (MSRs). In automatic management mode it continuously monitors the CPU usage level and dynamically adjusts the CPU frequency, throttle and/or voltage level as needed, realizing the "Performance on Demand" concept.

The basic version of the utility is freely available for downloading at the official website.

The RMClock Professional, which offers more features and is supplied as an application add-in (DLL module) for the basic RMClock package, is available for purchase at share-it!

About a virus threat at Digit-Life

Just a brief note about the virus threat that happened at Digit-Life today. We got hacked a bit it seems. As I get it, your antivirus software has already warned you about the "TrojanDownloader.AniLoad.NAC" threat. A number of general pages of Digit-Life was infected. But now everything should be all right. I thank every person, who informed me about this unpleasant matter. We are looking into this.

To our possible hackers: thanks for letting us know about a possible breach! But you could've just emailed me about that, you know :) This would've saved time and efforts of everyone involved.

And generally thanks to everyone who visits Digit-Life. Our reviews are especially for all of you!
