Glad you liked the new look. That's where a lot of my spare time has been going. I got the idea of the bounty by seeing things like this..http://wii.qj.net/The-Wii-Linux-Bounty-Boot-Linux-on-Wii-win-500-bucks/pg/49/aid/90101
and considering the popularity of MythTV as an open source PVR, I though it a good place to start. I'll try and provide more details, when interested parties email. It will be interesting to see if anything gets going. Interesting but not the major focus. I hope to use the site for the primary purposes of 1) Spreading the word about VectorLinux (in a way it's a bit of a fan site, but I don't want it to look that way.) and 2) To provide easy to follow tutorials for any new Linux user.
I did a bit of an experiment with Twitter and identi.ca and microbloged a number of the tutorials with tag lines of 'linux' 'slackware' 'screencast' and 'Installing Virtual-Box' or whatever the topic was. It worked great, before the end of the week I was already getting more hits from Twitter than from the VectorLinux forums (where I'm just preaching to the converted). So I can at the very least see this spreading a little name recognition for VectorLinux.
Also, I'm trying to work up the diggs for the site on Digg.com. If anyones a member of digg search 'Vector Linux' and you'll see there is not a lot of articles with high digg numbers about Vector.
again, Thanks for checking it out. Still lots of work to do.
