I found out you can use 2 URLS to reach the forum

forum.thinkpads.com
thinkpads.com/forum

The difference i found out is that forum.thinkpads.com has a parrot as a favicon, where thinkpads.com/forum has a red dot (trackpoint) as favicon

Are there any differences between these 2 ? And which URL is preferred?

Should be no difference as both URLs will resolve to the same site, assuming that the DNS server you are using is up-to-date. Personally I prefer forum.thinkpads.com since I'm partial to parrots :) .

Neat! I prefer the Trackpoint red dot, myself.

oh! wow.. that is a parrot :) ? I was wondering the same recently and I realized I'd gotten used to the gray icon (parrot) so maybe I'll stick with that until Red Button beckons me to change.
