CPU-Z 1.43 – from CPUID – Released

Posted in Fun Stuff, Site News, Utilities, Windows

CPU-ZCPU-Z is a small, yet extremely useful utility. The recent release encompasses several supports for new processors, for example

  • * Intel Skulltrail platform support (Core 2 Extreme QX9775 + 5400B MCH).
  • * Intel X48 chipset detection.
  • * AMD Athlon 64-LE 1600 and 1620 support.
  • * Fix detection issues on unlocked Phenom (ES/BE).

Hosted by CPUID, this small utility provides a rather informative data about your motherboard, memory and graphics card. One instance is that you can find out the speed of your RAM, e.g. PC-2700 or PC-2100, or the chipset of your microprocessor.

The good thing is that CPU-Z does not need to be installed. Simply unzip the files in a directory and run the .exe program (see screenshot). To remove the program, users only need to remove the entire directory.

WordPress 2.3.2 Released

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

WordPress DashBoard

WordPress 2.3.2 was released 2 days ago, barely unknown to me just right under my nose. I have been expecting it for quite some time, as the previous version released, WordPress 2.3.1, was then released more than 2 months ago.

This WordPress version provides several bugs fixes, as usual, but more noticeably, it is highly recommended to upgrade to this version. One of the main fixes is that the previous version exposes a security flaw that allows draft posts to be seen by public. Several other bug fixes and enhancements can be found here.
