Howdy folks.  I am relieved to post that thanks to Vector i can use my likeable but weird netbook, a Dell Mini v10.  This is the one which came with Ubuntu preinstalled and a Broadcom wifi card which is pretty "flaky".  Almost no other distribution works with that wifi (except Bodhi, a "minimalist" distro).

No problems with Vector -- yet.  If it stays as good as it looks so far, i think i'll get involved in helping the VL team.  I've been using various flavors of linux for years, but haven't been moved to get involved (besides being a bit of a linux "missionary").

Anyway, thanks.  Glad ya'll are here.  I'll be reading posts for a while, then i'll try to contribute in some way.  Yeah, i know, i can always donate some "moolah", right?   Roll Eyes

I made a contribution and almost immediately lost my internet connection.  Some kind of d-bus daemon failure.  Oh, well, it's back up now.

Thanks for the warm welcome.  Looks like a friendly community.  So who do i get in touch with to see how i can help out?  Stretched2thin?
