Besides this web magazine there is a VI mailing list with currently around 300 subscribers (or "Listers", as you will see them called elsewhere in the magazine). The list is primarily for technical subjects, parts projects and Indian how-to subjects, but we also have more general Indian related threads. The mailing list is open to anyone with an interest in Indians, and is a great place to learn more about them. Much of the material in the magazine comes from the mailing list.
There are archives of all previous list postings, profiles of the subscribers (if they wish to post one), and space for uploading pictures or other files to be shared.
Not sure what a mailing list is? It's a setup where email sent is forwarded to everybody on the list to read, and their answers likewise. It is an amazingly good way of meeting new people, getting answers to your problem and building an online community like this, which stretches across the world. The VI List has now reached the stage where Listers are meeting in the "real world" to continue the cooperation started in cyberspace (reports from the VI booths at Tenino and Davenport in September's magazine).
Please be forewarned that there is a lot of mail coming from the VI List. It is not the biggest of the Indian mailing lists, but it sure is the most active!
To join the VI mailing list, either go to this page and follow the instructions (or just read more about the VI mailing list) or send an empty email to the address below. Remember to send this message from the address you wish to receive list mail on!
You will receive a confirming email with instructions for unsubscribing, uploading files etc when you sign on. If you should have any problems, please check out the Mailing List "Help" page, and it that doesn't solve your problems, send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
