New to Vector
« on: August 24, 2012, 08:52:32 am »

Got Vector Light up and running just now.  I've always been a Windows guy, but I'm getting into cooking ROM's on Android phones and such, and a lot of what you can do on these phones can only be done on Linux.  I figured it was free, so why not?

So yeah, hey.

Welcome Apoplectic!

I like your name.  And I also like Webster's 1913 ed which I read via goldendict.

Apoplexy \Ap"o*plex`y\ ([a^]p"[-o]*pl[e^]ks`[y^]), n. [OE.
   poplexye, LL. poplexia, apoplexia, fr. Gr. 'apoplhxi`a, fr.
   'apoplh`ssein to cripple by a stroke; 'apo` from + plh`ssein
   to strike: cf. F. apoplexie. See {Plague}.] (Med.)
   Sudden diminution or loss of consciousness, sensation, and
   voluntary motion, usually caused by pressure on the brain.
   [1913 Webster]

Apoplectic \Ap`o*plec"tic\(#) Apoplectical \Ap`o*plec"tic*al\,
   a. [L. apoplecticus, Gr. ?, fr. ?: cf. F. apoplectique. See
   Relating to apoplexy; affected with, inclined to, or
   symptomatic of, apoplexy; as, an apoplectic person, medicine,
   habit or temperament, symptom, fit, or stroke.
   [1913 Webster]
Apoplectic \Ap`o*plec"tic\, n.
   One liable to, or affected with, apoplexy.
   [1913 Webster] Apoplectiform

Anyway, to the merits (Cooking Roms):  I am a member of the linphone user's group and it is very active with linux users who are apparently using linphone on their cell/smart phones, something (a cell phone) I am happily without.  But I do use linphone constantly on my VL 7 standard system.
