As GPUs and CPUs become more powerful, their thermal output is skyrockets. The typical solution to the problem is to add more fans. Pretty soon, you've more fans in your system than the old B-36 bomber had propellers—and your system is just about as loud, too. So we'd like to share a few of tips we've learned over the past year or so in reducing the noise of our PCs.

Everyone into the alternative browser and mail clients will want to take a look at Mozilla Thunderbird's first 1.5 testing release.
A key part of the Open Source market is the Perl programming language, and yesterday Perl celebrated its 18th birthday.
Unix isn't a flashy market. But what distinction there is has been going to Sun Microsystems lately, by making its Unix-based Solaris operating system available as open-source software. Last week, IBM moved to put its AIX Unix operating system back on everybody's radar by revealing plans to create a development center on its Austin, Texas, campus to speed up AIX development.
As December draws to a close, it's customary for all of us columnists to regale our readers with our predictions for the New Year. And who am I to break with tradition?

Having trouble coming up with last minute gift ideas? Yeah, we've been there too. If you need a few ideas, we've come up with a list of gift ideas from our own wishlists that should make any geek happy.

So, what happened this time?
