View Full Version : IBM - China

13-12-2004, 07:46 AM
Heard yesterday - but it can be only rumours - that a Chinese company bought IBM and their goal is to sell a complete PC, (screen, mouse, keyboard printer..) for.... 75 :eek: :eek:

This is not a typing fault. :confused:

If this is true, the business for the small airco's is almost gone, now it will be also for teh computers.

Its all over the front page of this site. We have a live news feed you know :)

Dez, perhaps I misunderstood you but where can I find this news?

Since the new look of the website - now some months ago - I'm unable to go to the main page of RE. The browser says I'm not logged in and asks for my password.
If I fill in the correct password, I'm receiving a message 'Invalid password'
I resetted it already twice - again today- with same result.
The program sends me a new password and I can chang it again afterwards without any problem.

Since then, I always go straight via www.refrigeration-engineer.com/forums

But I can read all the posts, so that's the most important for me.

Hi Dez,

Sorry, No can do.

When I enter the front page, I'm asked to log in (i am loged in :confused: )
Fill in my user name and password and it takes me to the next page where you greet me and................. sends me back to log in??????????? :confused:

Now what?

Chemi :)

OK Dez, it asks me to log although already in, I log-in and it accepts me, then it is a please wait to be redirected etc. At the end of the time out or if any link it selected it sends me to the forum index.
