just making it official. I no longer have the motivation or inclination to have anything to do with the admin of the wiki or the forum.
As regards the wiki: I believe that ibiblio are not 'serving' it up because the present version of the wiki software is insecure. I don't have the experience/expertise to upgrade the software nor the inclination to communicate with ibiblio to sort this out.
If there is anyone out there with the interest and commitment then please contact dz or offroadgeek to discuss the situation.
All the best

In the past year or so the only account registrations at the Wiki have been from spammers and vandals. My chief activity on the Wiki over the past few months has been blocking these accounts and deleting their contributions.
Today I have attempted to turn off account registration except by sysops. It appears to have worked.
If there should happen to be any genuine registree in the future please direct them to contact me via the forum pm system.
I will be emailing offroadgeek to let him know what I've tried to do.
I've clearly labelled the changes to LocalSettings.php so other sysops can turn registration back on if necessary.

I very quickly installed the advanced desktop mode to my eeepc, using the advice on the Eeeuser.com forums and wiki.
It wasn't long before I invested in a 16GB SDHC card and dual booted eeeXubuntu. I was quite happy with that and had it working quite nicely.
However the originator of the eeexubuntu project has gone missing. Perhaps he ran away from all the demands for help from the dozier inhabitants of that forum!
So I'm just trying to put xubuntu on and trying to follow the suggestions on those forums and that wiki.
So what other distros are people using or experimenting with?
Any tips, suggestions are more than welcome. There are so many duplicate threads over at Eeeuser.com that it is quite hard to find the genuine article.
I have a xubuntu dual boot working. After the xubuntu install I used the scripts from the ubuntu eee wiki and it seems to sort out the hardware issues, in particular the wifi drivers. The suggested webcam application seems a bit problematical.
