Search begins for Australia's best modder

A nationwide hunt is underway for the best PC modders in Australia, with a 3.2GHz PC on offer for the winner of the Intel PC Mod Challenge.

The top eight entries will be showcased at the Australian finals of the World Cyber Games (WCG), to be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre on 30-31 August.

The Australian finals will host about 100 gamers who have progressed through their respective state competitions. Those who become national champions will travel to Seoul, Korea, in October, to battle 55 other nations at the WCG Finals.

Entries for the Intel PC Mod Challenge must be functional and use a Pentium 4 processor.

Intel and media representatives will judge entries on creativity, technical skill, performance and functionality.

The major prize is a new PC with a 3.2GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel 865 chipset.

Entrants must send a photo of their modified PC, along with a one-page description of the entry and an explanation of why a high performance processor enhances the mod. All correspondence is to be sent to caseyw@spectrumcomms.com.au.

Entries close 22 August.

One Western Australian enthusiast has built a fully-functional, high-spec PC with the project name of “JellyBean” into a model car shell.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
