A Trip Down Distro Memory Lane

file-exists-p Where can I get the Slackware 1.0 ? (238 comments)

I wanted to download a slackware 1.0 (hence 1993), the first distribution I ever used, to try it on an emulator. After 15min of google, nothing. Is there a canonical place to find old distributions ?

Lenovo's New ThinkPad Has 2 LCD Screens, Weighs 11 Pounds

file-exists-p Re:Since Lenovo took over, Thinkpads suck (194 comments)

It seemed that he does not like the "touch" of it, with that impression that the whole keyboard moves down when you press a key. Cheap laptops tend to do this, but not the thinkpads I own.

Lenovo's New ThinkPad Has 2 LCD Screens, Weighs 11 Pounds

file-exists-p Re:Since Lenovo took over, Thinkpads suck (194 comments)

I am the proud owner of a 570e, T41p, T61p and X61s. And indeed, the T61p is the most Lenovo of the four, and it sucks (huge and hot). The X61s is wonderful (netbook sized and amazing keyboard, CPU, HD, screen and linux compatibility) but it seems that it was IBM designed.

One of my relatives just bought a T400 and his comment was "pretty cool, but the keyboard sucks a bit" ... Knowing that one of the main reason to buy a Thinkpad was the quality of the keyboard, this is bad.

Now, maybe the expensive ones are better ? People do not seem to complain about the X[23]00, do they ?

What Restrictions Should Student Laptops Have?

file-exists-p None on the laptops, lots on the wireless (1117 comments)

I would put no restriction on the laptops, and hard restrictions on the school wireless (i.e. whitelist), if there is one.

From my logic, what the students do with their laptops out of the school is the parents responsability, what they do at school is yours.

file-exists-p Re:I like Genetics personally (511 comments)

One of my relatives has Crohn's disease, and by simply restricting her diet to a very limited group of food (i.e. rice, fish, certain fruits and vegetables, olive oil, and no diary, no meat, no spices, no alcohol, no cholocate, no coffee, no citrus, etc.) she does not need to take any med.

Before switching to that diet she was under corticoid, with all the associated side effects.

file-exists-p Real-size keyboard (354 comments)

I really don't get why nobody cares about the keyboard size. Young people do not type anymore these days ?!
