Please move the author block back to the left column. It's awkward on the right and largely invisible to me. I have vision issues with my right eye, and I have to make an effort to see it.

Re: Thinkpadders Rejoice (*LARGE PICS*)

True. Having said that, it was still a shady move on Lenovo's part and makes one wonder what "bugs" - not necessarily as easy to detect as this one or Superfish - might be shipped within their business-grade offerings, now or in the future. Well, I never said they weren't thick-headed about stuff l...

Since then I have been degraded to all sorts of titles, currently "Token Ring". That's hilarious. Knowing how outdated Token Ring is, I would almost have seen that as an offense.
