6915 - Linkies, linkies, who's got the linkies?

I was right, took me about three hours, and I got a nice bonus check and an Italian lunch out afterwards.

The gang will be happy with the new machines... flat screens, better boxes, and cordless keyboard/mice for some. HP is really quite good about granted equipment, if you're willing to dance around the paperwork.

Treadmill for FPS games... about time!

The name Germany is used in three senses: first, it refers to the region in Central Europe commonly regarded as constituting Germany, even when there was no central German state, as was the case for most of Germany's history; second, it refers to the unified German state established in 1871 and existing until 1945; and third, since October 3, 1990, it refers to the united Germany, formed by the accession on this date of the German Democratic Republic (GDR, or East Germany) to the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG, or West Germany). The name Federal Republic of Germany refers to West Germany from its founding on May 23, 1949, until German unification on October 3, 1990. After this date, it refers to united Germany. For the sake of brevity and variety, the Federal Republic of Germany is often called simply the Federal Republic.
