Anyway, I've been working flat out on my part of the book and I've actually done so much that I don't know where to begin listing things here...
I installed my nice new 580w PSU over the weekend (my case now looks like a mess because I couldn't be bothered to make it neat and tidy [rolleyes]) and the latest 100.59 Nvidia drivers. Hardware D3D10 performance seems pretty stable now, although Vista in general is much more fragile since I put in the 8800.
I've got some of the sample code up and running for the book - although not as much as I'd like.
Anyway, back to work - pictures later maybe [wink]
