The main page of ThinkWiki is not protected, so feel free to edit it. But do it with caution - it's the primary connection to the all content of our ThinkWiki ;-)

I added to wikipedia-like templates. To edit them go to Template:ThinkWiki_Preamble and Template:ThinkWiki_News. Shall we put the other parts of the page in templates, too? If we do so, we could have that nice block design from wikipedia on our mainpage.

I think this is too much color. Makes it less readable, takes longer to orientate than the plain list style layout.
Liked it with only the two blocks in the beginning.
If we want to use blocks for everything, please stick to fewer colors. I think the yellow of the first block is not bad, and else i'd suggest light grey, maybe light blue.
However, if we stick to having all in blocks, how about this color scheme?

Made another Mainpage layout sketch. This tries to resemble the Tux and IBM logo colors and therefor looks quite "fresh".

- Too colorful for my taste, I think the other one is better --Nomeata 19:46, 28 Sep 2004 (CEST)
Important change: Moved Main_Page to ThinkWiki for cosmetical reasons..

Needed: older ThinkPad specs...
As you can tell by my userid here, I've got a 600E. There are a whole lot of them out there thanks to the fact it was the current model during the Dot-Com era. We should cover the older ThinkPads and their quirks as well as the later models.
I also had a 365X, which is now living with a friend in the UK.
Yes, the next ThinkPad I'll probably score is a T4x, they are really kewl machines and inspire technolust in this geek. But until then, I love my 600E and I'm looking forward to some upgrades this weekend.
I will make copious notes on the upgrade process, which will include the installation of a 40GB hard drive and using the stock 10GB drive as extra Windows storage space. I have a hard drive bay module so the stock drive can be reused. The vast majority of the HD will be given over to an install of Debian Linux, with a 7GB Windows 2K partition because the University I will be attending a year from now demands it. (Yeah, I know, sucks, doesn't it.)
ThinkPad different, Michelle
I totally agree.
All specs of all models can be found on the IBM support pages, we just need volunteers to transfer the infos into internal pages.
Since this is not the most interesting thing to do and hence it would be best if people using older ThinkPads transfer the specs for their models themselves. The same goes for other articles as installation infos, problems or whatever. I had a 570 once and loved it even though T30s where available at the same time...and i'd like to see more about these machines here, which everyone of them had some special characteristics and ideas behind them. So please show up, proud owners of Thinkpad 730TEs. 701s, 360Ps, Transnotes etc. ... ! ;)
Owners of the newer machines should take care of writing their articles (especially when creating new pages or sections) in a way that they are open for older models as well...i.e. make clear in the page or section title that its a specific topic for newer models.

I just inserted Benchmarks into the main menu.

I replaced the old logo with the great new one crafted by Wyrfel
--akw 14:22, 1 Mar 2005 (CET)
- The new logo is too large to fit the sidebar. I can only see the yellow center with the ThinkWiki text and the left foot of Tux. I am using 1024x768 resolution and Opera. --18.104.22.168 14:37, 1 Mar 2005 (CET)
In Firefox the rest of the logo appears overlaid over the page frame. Interesting, that Opera doesn't do this.
However, we'll fix this soon.
Wyrfel 19:57, 1 Mar 2005 (CET)
- Well, I am using Firefox and I only see half of Tux without any overlay. I guess I'll wait for the fix :-) --22.214.171.124 21:33, 1 Mar 2005 (CET)
Strange, it works with firefox and epiphany for me. I'll fix it.
Ok, now the smaller logo image is online. Looks nice for me :-)

Main Page now protected
I had to protect the mainpage from editing because of vandalism. Everyone who wants to add something to the mainpage is asked to post it here, the admins (akw, Wyrfel) will insert it into the mainpage. You can also contact us to make your suggestions!
We're sorry for inconvenience. :-(

i tried to do some stuff with templates, but it seems like templates in this version of MediaWiki are lacking some features and also seem a bit buggy (or i want too much). Is it troublesome to update to 1.4rc1? Shell we wait for the stable? Wyrfel 01:09, 14 Mar 2005 (CET)
- ATI Proprietary driver updated (8.12.10) http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/linux_8.12.10.html
I updated the thinkwiki software to version mediawiki 1.4.4. I hope this update will not be too painful. There is still a problem with URL rewriting, so I had to deactivate the .htaccess file. Because of this, we got this ugly URLS with this index.php/' before the entry. The problem seems to be with the wiki config file LocalSettings.php and/or the .htaccess file. I hope I get it fixed soon.
