I just got a great new laptop. It's an IBM ThinkPad 600X and I love it. I'm creating this post on the new machine. It's small but powerful with a Pentium III 50 128 Mb of RAM and a 6 gigabyte hard drive

Right now I'm trying to visit one of my favorite web sites, Slate.  It's an online magazine and is owned and operated, by Microsoft.nnBut my Microsoft browser, Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106, keeps reporting that there are errors on the page and it fails to display Slate's home page correctly. I'm not surprised.

Back in 1995, when I first tried the Internet, I tried MSN. I thought that just because Microsoft knew software and operating systems they would offer a good online service. Well it was terrible. It crashed, the access line was busy. Overall though, I'm pleased with the laptop and the browser.
