Thinkpad T43, daily use.  I've had the laptop at least 3.5 years, but this is my second hard drive.

SmartCTL shows his drive is at 727231.  I didn't renew my warranty after three years.  My first replacement was covered.

Unlike vista, Win7 is actually pretty snappy on this machine, but I'm more comfortable here back in Ubuntu.

This simple HTML still crashes Beta2.  It will probably still crash the RTM.  This was a trick I found back in 2002.  I had reported it somewhere, but obviously nowhere important.

Hacking's just another word for nothing left to kludge.
