My old ThinkPad T60

I bought it in December 2006! It still works fine except it is starting to make really too much noise sometimes, maximum amount of memory is 4GB, battery isn't able to keep it going for more than 2 hours. And it is 15", with 9-cell battery that is "sticking out" on the back side of the notebook. It is quite heavy.

I've replaced old hard drive with Intel SSD 160GB year ago. Notebook is now blazingly fast. But - as stated above - has some problems. So it is time to buy new one.

BLUG 2011 day 2

Second day of BLUG 2011 was starting with two "blast" sessions: Admin and Xpages. I kind of wanted to see both of them, but finally I took the Admin one. And it was great and I am sure the Xpages one was great either.
Fabulous @Formulas by Kathy Brown (Running Notes) made me think about how is it possible to work with some product for so long (I started with Notes 3.0) and still stumble on a completely new things.

BLUG 2011 day 1

I am not a big fan of keynotes, they are mostly too high level for me. But it was raining outside in the beginning of day 1 at BLUG so I decided to listen to Kevin Cavanaugh's keynote. And it was quite good, although not technical at all, if you do not count using Expose :-)
He pointed out (in a CxO language) where IBM is heading with all that "social this and social that".
