RE: [N8VEM: 13678] Re: [N8VEM-S100:819] FW: Wikipedia page User talk:Lynchaj has been changed by JoeSperrazza

A big "Thank you" to Douglas, yourself, Mike, Brian, Alan, and everyone who pitched in to help save the Wikipedia page.  I sincerely appreciate all you do for the project. 


Without the builders, there would not be a "home brew computing project" at all.  You make all the difference.  Thank you very much!

I took a shot at adding a bit to the article specifically trying to stress "notability" of the project and it's "non-commercial" nature.  Those items seem to be the primary point of concern that I can discern.


Anyone who wants to modify/improve/clarify my words is encouraged to do so.  My belief is that we needed to get some words about notability and non-commercial into the article quickly to directly address the concerns of the Wikipedia editors.


Hope it helps.

Hi Mike!  Good news!  The Wikipedia editors have restored the page!


Please see


I can see their point on the article though.  Anyone want to take a whack at revising the Wikipedia article?

It is difficult to describe exactly *what* the N8VEM home brew project is though.  An ad-hoc distributed group of peer-peer free/open source hardware and software designers?  There isn't even a central design or product.  It doesn't exactly lend itself to an easily described philosophy.

Thoughts?  Ideas?  Discussion?

Thanks and have a nice day!
