- After seeing what the site looked like in 800x600 with a Medium text size, I've rewritten the style sheets and font handling throughout G-Web. It should now be bearable within resolutions lower than 1024x768. I've also switched from the Verdana font to good old MS Sans Serif ... let me know if you have any problems or comments.

- Added ABit BF6 BIOS RV, which improves the 133MHz FSB option in SoftMenu III, and resolves a few specific issues.
- Added IPEUp366 Virus Definition Update for InoculateIT PE Version 5.x.
- Added an Internet Protection page to the System Tools menu. This page will show apps that are proven to help fight the battle against on-line hackers and Spyware. The starting line-up of apps includes the ZoneAlarm dynamic firewall and the OptOut Spyware detection and removal tool.
- Added an Overclocker's Apps page to the System Tools menu. This page will show apps that should come in very handy for overclockers - the starting list is Rain, WCPUID and MotherBoard Monitor 4.
- There's a link on the Creative Labs New Files page to a beta version of the Creative Game Launcher for Windows 9x. This creates a unique set of display properties for each 3D game you play, and loads them when you launch the game though it.
- Archived April's News.

- Added the Unreal Tournament 420 patch, and it's Direct3D DLL to the Unreal Tournament page.
- Regarding the Matrox System Utilities 1.09 ... it seems that the results of updating to this BIOS are, as usual, different for all types of system configurations and users. So, as usual, try it if you like, but keep that 'flash-back' disk in a safe place.
- Added IPEUp361 Virus Definition Update for InoculateIT PE Version 5.x.

- Added IPEUp359 Virus Definition Update for InoculateIT PE Version 5.x.
- Updated the GetRight page with the available patches to get you up to version 4.2 (which was released last month).
- Added the Inoxx Pack of maps for Unreal Tournament.
- Added the Matrox System Utilities 1.09, which includes new BIOSes for Matrox G200s and G400s. Take care with this release, though - there are a lot of reports on the newsgroup (alt.comp.periphs.videocards.matrox) that this BIOS is killing G400 D3D performance with Pentium IIIs. I'll keep you posted.

- Added WinZip 8.0, now that the beta is a full release.
- I can't get through to the InoculateIT Update page at the moment - see if you can get through to get the latest virus definition update.

- Archived March's News.
