odd hopefulness...

Two things.

One, I doubt anybody does, or I'd ask in a more private fashion, but does anybody here work for IBM or know somebody who does that might be able to help me out? I'm probably going to end up with a Thinkpad as my laptop (I miss Macavity, and I trust IBM) and if there's somebody who could help me make it a bit cheaper, that person will be loved forever. ;)

Two, does anybody have an old hub so I can connect two computers in one room together? I'd normally use my wireless router, but that needs to be put in a more central place in this house (my room's off to one side instead of in the middle in the new place) and I have two desktop machines that need Internet connections. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, it just has to be as cheap as possible.

Thanks in advance.
