No need to. The facts are what they are. Not liking them and waving the flag of conspiracy theories is a most unfortunate and increasing common practice these days.

Re: Corona-COVID-19 virus statistics and HOW is it affecting you.. what are you doing..?

A follow-up answer to the OP's question: reading "Resisting Illegitimate Authority" by Bruce E. Levine (a book of 240 pages) and "The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude" by Étienne de la Boétie (a book of 82 pages)

Sorry, but I don't subscribe to any "points of view" that start with "The US Medical System And CDC Murdered 100,000+".
From the chief of the CDC himself: see here and here (a short video related to the first link).

Re: Corona-COVID-19 virus statistics and HOW is it affecting you.. what are you doing..?

But I guess this Virus mania book is even weirder. Any book that starts with "the deadly effects of AIDS, Ebola and Polio have never been proven" should be mandatory reading. :mrgreen: I'm more interested in whether anybody named in the book filed a complaint against the authors and if so about its...

I consider Fauci one of the finest doctors too. ... Further I dont think Fauci has a particular agenda outside of his hippocratic oath. ... I find your faith in Fauci disturbing . See also this and this 2007 book which documents the virus frauds preceding Covid in which Fauci is mentioned by name. ...

Re: T520 upgrade question

I installed an i7 2760QM in my T520 that runs great. I rarely ever hear the fan run. You can do better though with the i7 2860QM... Lenovo's PSREF indicates i7-2760QM and i7-2860QM laptops are equiped with a (W520) 170W AC adapter. Is the T520 170W AC adapter 'adapter plug' compatible with the T520...

T520 upgrade question

I'm eyeing on a refurbished T520 Core I5-2410M with SSD. With reference to the corresponding thinkwiki.org's page, which is the maximum useful (mainly for compiling) CPU upgrade without needing to upgrade other parts (heat sink, AC adapter, ...)?

Re: T530 Quad Core + Thinkpad 4337 Mini Dock Series 3?

OK thanks, that's good news.

Unless I'm mistaken, T530 QC's have a 135W AC adapter so it should work with the 4337 Mini Dock Series 3.

I'm wondering though: the ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0 have a 170W adapter. What is the additional #W's useful/needed for?

Re: X220 Ultrabase 3: can not remove 2nd HDD Caddy/Ultrabay

I managed to "gently" pull out the Caddy with a pair of pliers. One of side screws to fasten the HDD to the Caddy was sticking out and probably blocked the Caddy's removal because once screwed in deeper the Caddy can again be removed without problem.

[SOLVED] X220 Ultrabase 3: can not remove 2nd HDD Caddy/Ultrabay

Though no problem before to insert & remove the 2nd HDD Caddy/Ultrabay, now it's stuck in the Ultrabase. When sliding the small unlock switch, the T-shaped handle pops out, which should enable to slide the Caddy further out, but I'm unable to remove the Caddy. Any idea how to free it?
