And a happy new year!The turkey's been eaten and we're waiting for our Christmas pudding to be served up with rich brandy sauce. Hic. So in the meantime allow us to wish every one of you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. The past 12 months have been a blast, and it was made all the more better by your comments, forum posts and emails. Thanks to everyone who took the trouble to read our articles and participated in discussions.

A guide to overclocking Kinetic and StrongARM CPU cards
Charlie Lane has compiled a package of notes and photos on overclocking various StrongARM processer cards, including Castle Kinetics, for RiscPCs. Overclocking is the process of ramping up the digital timing signals of the computer to force the processor to work faster. Charlie told us: "I thought it would be fun to investigate the possibilities of speeding up my Kinetic RiscPC - only to find suitable information on Kinetic cards was rather hard to come by so I set about working it out for myself." Note: Follow the instructions entirely at your own risk.
