Hallo allemaal, > There is a seperate > SuperCPU mailing list which serves very well for SuperCPU people, and a > Homestead mailing list for CBM "users". In a similar vein I really think > there ought to be a J-board mailing list. Any suggestions for a list name? I seem to remember that two years ago three lists were packed together because of the fact that 1) each list alone had a low email throughput and 2) 90% of the regular posters were members of all three lists. IMHO you want to turn the clock back. I can remember a period that I posted an email to makes sure that I was still a member of the list; no email in 5 days time. > I would much rather people talked about hacking CBM hardware. Lets see the topics of the last days: J-board, PC-card, OZ-card and J64 (Jeri's new C64). All CBM hardware hacks by my standards. > There are many more Americans here now, > who talk about expensive peripherals and what they would like to see > in new designs and how much they'd be prepared to pay for it, but very > little in the way of actual technical contributions of their own. What is expensive? I admire that Amercian Tito. He dared to spend over 20 MILLION DOLLAR to realise a dream. Honnestly, I would have done exactly the same. No contribution? Be happy that they are there at all! I learned a lot by just reading the stuff on this list. If you freighten them away, who is going to take over when we are dead and gone? Please, give them a chance and some credit. I must admit that I also was a little bit unhappy about all the "yes, we want this and that" after Jeri's announcement. But please, let people dream. And now one of us realised a piece of that common dream. About "Americans": with all respect but in my eyes she is THE CBM- Hacker for the moment and she is American AFAIK :) ( I read your statement of no offence meant, same for all above) And now lets hope that that damned signature thing works.
