As far as wiki's go, with wiki.irixnet.org locked down, should we as a community focus on adding new knowledge to the higher intellect wiki? For example, I've recently done a little bit of vfo work that it would be great to document somewhere.

Edit: Looks like wiki.irixnet.org is live and looks pretty nice. So I may just throw things in there for the time being.

@callahan: Nothing against the IRIX Network wiki and probably a week ago I would have just said either one makes sense, but some recent developments make me think it may not be the most future proof solution for continued availability.

Currently the Preterhuman / Higher Intellect wiki has the most information and seems pretty stable. Apparently the person who runs it is also in the User Group chat! That would be my recommendation at the moment.

Forum posts work for documentation as well although they are not as structured as a wiki.
