Well then it's Notes that's broken. I forgot that IBM used Notes.

On a more general note, though, let's not discuss the whole IBM/Lenovo thing 
all over again. I'm tired of seeing the same arguments about what happened, 
what is happening, and what will happen with regards to the Lenovo buyout. If 
y'all have something to say regarding the specific firmware bugs Shem 
mentioned, or access to BIOS teams at IBM/Lenovo, say it. Don't talk about 
Chinese market strategy or Lenovo's facade of support for Linux. These things 
all may be true, but they've already been discussed. Multiple times. There 
isn't much new under the sun, especially in regards to this stuff.
