hello again, I'm uhh... *checks username* nym, and some of you know me, others don't. I'm coming back because Xkeeper kept mentioning it on Mastodon and I kept thinking, "yeah, I'll go back there some time."

So uhh, yeah, little about me for those that don't know/remember: I have no personality and you should just ignore me.

Trackpoints are wonderful -- there's also the keyboard, the fact that servicing the thing yourself isn't painful, the magnesium cage/CFRP base, the fact that they can be had pretty cheaply now...

I wish they'd make something entirely CFRP again, though. And indeed, everything outside of the p series seems to have fallen off pretty hard...

This got extremely off-topic. Oh well...

I can just appreciate the days when "extremely thin" wasn't the prevailing design aesthetic, so that stuff had depth, weight, and didn't feel like it was made out of paper.

The best thing about the Thinkpad design was the included Mouse Nub™. Lightyears ahead of touchpads, still is.

yeah that 90s-early 2k look and feel is amazing

and Windows ME works brilliantly in a T42 apparently

i love the style of thinkpads,
id love a modern pc with effectively the same design as a 90s thinkpad
i know they made the thinkpad 25 last year,
but it doesnt seem quite the same
(and seems to be a piece of crap, on top of it)

Thinkpads are nice, yup. I mean, not that I can say too much about them, since I only have a 380ED from 1998 or thereabouts, but I guess I do like them in general?

Also, welcome everyone I haven't welcomed because I'm lazy and don't post enough.

I'm lucidiot and I have no idea how to properly introduce myself! I... like cookies? And thinkpads. There are a few people I know from Mastodon here, I guess they would be able to describe me more accurately!

I got to know xkeeper on tilde.town then on Mastodon a little more than a year ago. After coming here once or twice just to look around I decided to just register and try to get involved in here. Tilde.town has gotten just too big and scary for me and I do not have that feeling of belonging in there anymore, maybe I will find something like it here?
hello und welcome to our humble abode

Although it appears that the profile in question's been renovated recently.

I updated yours to remove the title around the same time I updated a different title.


Anyway, hi, welcome to new users and welcome back to returning ones. It's good to have you around.

Even though I wasn't a part of this place the first time, it's kind of reassuring to see older faces filtering back in. Welcome!

i think i gathered solely through your avatar, eheh

also, i suppose i havent reintroduced myself so, here goes
hi im roxie, im 27 and i never fuckin learned how to read
i uh, was banned for a while for being, kind of a fuckhead
and then i like, got unbanned i think? in 2011
and then i just kinda drifted away from jul,
because for whatever reason i found twitter more compelling
who knows what i was thinking there

anyway, now im back,
because im hella sick of the entire rest of the internet!! woo

im so tired


Well, welcome back!

I can relate, breaks and time away gives you time to evolve, and that's a good thing!

It's good places like this continue to exist! the internet may very well be dying in different kinds of ways.

I was gonna make a "EVERYONE IS HERE!" thing because of all those returning faces, but I am a bit lazy.

It's nice to see all you new and old peeps get here.

Big ol welcome to the new ones, and a welcome back to the old ones.

Now, I'll go back to my habit of furiously lurking.

I'm guessing that you like bats too?

Hee - I do, yes! I actually picked the name for not very good and non-bat-related reasons back when I made my Livejournal account in 2005, but it was pretty easy to fall in love with the animals themselves. 💚 🦇
