This is also my story with X300.
I have 4 notebooks at the moment, two are Toshiba other two are Thinkpads. I dreamed about X300, it just amazed me, and after I got it, paid loads of cash for it (I paid in cash) ~2400 euros, after I rejected the fact that I’ll get Windows with it, since I’m basically “pushing” towards Debian development, otherwise the “original” cost would be ~2500 euros.
I order it Genelec (official dealer), wait for it for less than 2 weeks, got it, paid full price in cash.
Now I get my X300, I’m amazed and all, first I notice one weird thing, battery is not as it “noted” everywhere else, every week it’s losing 5 minutes of its battery life, in the end I get with something as 2:45-40, please do take the fact that I compile my own kernel and that I optimize it to the maximum, but … that’s the story.
Tried many methods, “blank it” out to … whatever it didn’t help, but I had idea of getting a new battery and in the meantime 128GB SSD came out, so it was in my future plans, some day. Anyways, pretty much everything was great and I was actually considering of switching to Thinkpad for good.
more “Beer spill on X300”
As it goes or whole “system” itself, this is final v1.0 release. I’ll talk about bugs in one second. Last month on 14th, I started this whole “foolcontrol” thing, and for 1 month period, all I can say is that … yea I’m very pleased with the “results”.
Most of visitors come from North America and Europe. Windows is still leading OS with 51.20%, while Linux comes second with 34.82%. As for browsers, Firefox is defeinte leader with 40.36% while IE comes in third with 19.64% :)
Average would be 27.9 unique visits for day, so for a blog yea that’s good.
As for the bugs, there was one people like to complain about, and that one is that poll its result, actually everything regarding it, text would be just … “jagged” or screwed if you wish. So I just did a fix today. As it comes to another “big” bug. Konqueror on front page, it only displays first and last post. I have no idea how to fix this bug, and just so you know, Konqueror on KDE4, there’s no more such thing. It displays everything perfectly.
And yes “Emails from @foolcontrol.org marked as junk?” adding spf record helped, so that’s been solved now too. If you wan’t your foolcontrol email … get it :)
I’m actually thinking of implementing a forum, some of you would actually like that :)
I think I’ll let poll decide about that one, while I most definetely will implement gallery … over time :)
That’s it, peace out ;)
