Hello all. Again.
« on: January 22, 2016, 01:34:07 am »

I'm not exactly a newbie, but I've been inactive for nearly five years, so I feel it would be appropriate to reintroduce myself.  My name is Chris, I'm an engineer, a gamer and a PC tinkerer.  I was all those things last time too, but I've now added two new titles to that list - husband and father.  That last one may have spurred my return to Vector a little :)

My first introduction to Vector was in the form of 5.4 SOHO.  Those of you who were active when I was here last may remember I'd just found gainful employment with an electrical engineering firm at the time.  I've since moved on from there, now lending my engineeriness to a hospital.  The environment is high-stress, but the team I work with is excellent, so much so that I've rediscovered the urge to tinker with PCs that the last place burned out of me (hence my return to Vector.)

I have to say, I'm glad I've rediscovered that urge - 7.1 looks exceptionally well polished, and I doff my cap to the devs and packagers and bug-busters who got it to this point - to go from where wifi was a hit'n'miss affair and you might, might be lucky enough to find suitable drivers for your wireless device to having it work straight from install is a wonderful achievement.  I look forward to what may be achieved with 7.1 SOHO and 7.2 Std, and look forward to helping and being helped by others in the community as I find my way back to a more technical relationship with my boxes.
Acer Laptop:  Vector 7.1 Std Final & Windows XP Professional & USB (still alive! 12 years on!)
Quad-core BEAST: Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit & Vector 5.9 64-bit beta-2
701 EeePC:  Puppeee (based on Puppy 4.01)

Hey, nice to see you again. Welcome back!
