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.

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