right today i came back late in the morning after a lot of free
soublaki and retsina and in my bed I booted my x60s, probably to check
my mails, watch some porn or something, don't remember. I had it in
all timers off mode and therefore was quite dazzled by the light which
was coming from the display when I woke up again 8 hours later and
lying flat on the keyboard and display. I assume I was too pissed and
tired to use the fingerprinting sensor properly...
Thinkpads are definitely reliable...
