Big news sites are often spotty during lunchtime in their vicinity, and
about-an-hour-past-rush-hour (e.g. when folks get to their home systems).
Those are the hot surfing hours, and you'll see spikes from other time
zones slip in. (I think the surfers-in-same-zone effect comes from local
backbones getting overloaded)
I rush to comment that
www.linux-laptop.net (singular) is Kenneth Harker's excellent
link farm on the topic...
www.linux-laptops.net (plural) is a vendor who sells refurbished
laptops. As they call themselves "Linux Laptop" we *hope*
they sell them pre-loaded, but, since they don't say squat
about which distros they selected, much less any MSwin
versions at all, you can't prove it by me. They do seem
to be models which behave ok under Linux, but I'd call the
domain name opportunistic.
Just to get that straight.

Good to see it, Scott.
Hmm, I'm sure I once saw a resource where folks were keeping stacks and
stacks of raw XF86Config files for PC *ix users to enjoy. Glancing at it,
I'm not sure it's *that* many anymore, but it's certainly nothing to sneeze
at. On Kharker's site it's a little buried, so I mention it here:
Although unless he means he has a DELL Inspiron 5000e with 1600x resolution:
...they don't seem to have anything for him.

Good luck, Tuxer, let us know how it's going!
