I've had very rare occasions on this board and some others where I did click but my post never registered. I imagine that can be plenty of reasons for this along the many hops that a transmission takes to get to the destination.

The solution for me has been to wait several minutes and if it's still not there, try again. Always give quite a bit of time to avoid double-posting in the same thread. That's the approach I take...for what it's worth.

I started with an Amstrad PCW, whic I bought 2nd hand. Then I bought a new 486-sx something or other from an electrical retailer that was going bust. It was cheap and ran Win 3.1. It was a waste of time and money but whetted my appetite for computers.

Currently I have a bespoke AMD box (bespoke in the sense that I built it myself and it was cheap ) , a server which was given to me by a builder (a nice Compaq Presario 5420), a HP Omnibook XE3 bought for me by my employer and a Toshiba Satellite 220CS (p133 48mb - my current box of choice because it's soooooo solid. And it's got Debian on it!!!) that I have brought back from the dead. I didn't pay for this one. I also have the makings of another box (AMD-k2) in various drawers and boxes around the house.

I am currently trying not to buy a Thinkpad T21 because I'm not sure if 299 is a good price.

Remember if you buy a Thinkpad and are considering using lm_sensors with it, to read the warning in the man page for "sensors-detect." They strongly advise not running sensors-detect on a Thinkpad.

I always kind of wanted a Thinkpad, but now that I'm a Linux-ite, I probably would never succeed in making it work with Linux, so I just stick to my custom-built desktop, which suits me OK.
