This week saw an important milestone in the short but storied history of the bit-tech blog: Technical Editor Richard drew level with games writer Joe in terms of number of posts. Since the blog's launch, Joe has been its most prolific writer, but the whole team are now getting into the swing of it.

We're now updating the blog daily during the week with a selection of posts covering the usual rich mix of hardware and games that invokes our ire or has us babbling uncontrollably about its brilliance. Here's what's got us going this week:

Rants:
Graphics cards overheating! NOOOooo! Mark goes back to BSODs and the stress of his early ATI cards and what solutions might be available to his cooling problems.

I can give up the internet whenever I want... just not today, honey. Our very own newly married Mr Harry Butler looks back on two weeks spent off the grid in Canada, and how he really, could have done with a 3G smartphone...

Raves:
Samorost is one of the best games ever. If you have an hour spare: Play it! It demands to be appreciated! Oh and turn your sound on too! Wondering why I love it so much? Click here.

MSI has come a long way and is finally getting everything right to challenge the big boys of Asus and Gigabyte! Good on you, Sirs! Click here to read more about Core i5 motherboards are going to be a three horse race.

One that's already popular with our community is divulging your the greatest gaming achievement. Joe poses the question, elaborating on the subject himself that he's managed to fight through the climactic elevator battle in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time without dying, among others.

Close to all of our hearts is our first mod. No matter how simple, how old or how crap it was we want to know. Read what Antony's was here.

And finally there's this week's Asus Xtreme Global Summit Competition where you can win next-gen Asus hardware and tickets to a hardware preview event in London at the end of the month.
