1. This is one of the reasons I've stayed with 7.10 on my primary
machine - an Acer 3050 with the same Broadcom wifi set. I tried it on
my test machine, and wifi went bye-bye. Restored that system via
7.04/7.10 install/upgrade and got it back handily. 8.04 is still way
too buggy for my taste.
2. If I can make it, I'll also bring my laptop, in case anyone can
assist me in getting GPG to work with Thunderbird. I have a good,
verifiable fingerprint, but can't seem to get the package to work.
3. BTW: Has anyone discovered how to make certain Linux/wifi laptops
work in the ACCD environment that otherwise work anywhere but on ACCD
properties? That'd be a mighty big help...
