A couple years ago, Lenovo announced its plans to build a "retro" ThinkPad that would resurrect design elements of ThinkPads past as an homage to the brand's long history.

That ThinkPad is now real. Check out the ThinkPad 25, sold to commemorate 25 years of ThinkPads.

I'm just going to leave this here for you lovely ThinkPad people. This isn't for me, but I'm not here to ruin your party.

Do clean up after yourselves.

Simple chat clients still only require a few MB of RAM or even less. Just take "net send" as an example which makes IRC look bloated ;)

But most people aren't using those. They are using chat clients that can do video-calling, share desktop programs, transfer files, send animated emoticons, etc.

I also remember Windows 98 and IRC-Clients crashing or losing connections several times in 1 evening and needing constant restarts for "simple things" like a resolution change
