A few weeks ago, we had some server trouble and had to restore our mailing list from an old backup copy (my bad). That may have led to some newer subscribers losing their place on the list. If you would like to receive a notice when we publish an important article or review (not just any news item), you can go subscribe here. We don't give out the mailing list to anyone, and there's an automated unsubscribe function, so it should be hassle-free.
That said, some folks who had unsubscribed in recent months might have been added back to the list when we restored from backup. Sorry about that. Just click the unsubscribe link in the latest mailing, and you should be set.
I mentioned recently the joy of using RMClock to enable Cool'n'Quiet on my Athlon 64 FX system. It really does work reasonably well, but I've noticed a nasty problem: when the clock speed moves up or down, the change injects a bunch of static into any audio stream playing on my M-Audio Revolution card. I'm not sure which is worse: constant fan noise above what I want, or occasional static during processor load spikes. Have any of you guys noticed a similar problem with clock throttling, either via RMClock or otherwise? I wonder if this problem is confined to RMClock, to the M-Audio card, to my Asus SK8N mobo, or perhaps the combination of two or three of those elements. Anybody else notice this problem? Anybody using RMClock without this problem?
