A void in these forums has become more and more obvious to me in the last couple months. On more than one occasion, I've noticed discussion of various "micro" projects being discussed in either General, DTVhacking, and even Retrobits.
These discussions have been both on-topic and relevant in the areas they are being discussed, but I thought it was time we set aside a dedicated section for the discussion of various micro projects.
With that being said, I bring you, uHacking:
uHacking is intended to provide a place for discussion for topics that might range from the latest modern project designed for retrocomputers. Examples include: the uIEC, C=key, 1541-III, Keyrah and other interesting projects for various 8bit machines.
Also, I'd like to include more recent discussion of products like the Apple I kit, PICAXE, Amtel, and Basic Stamp products.
Discussion of various interface cables including the 1541X/M, and SIO2PC will also be considered "on topic."
As usual, make yourself to home....

An excellent idea. The DTVHacking board has become home to an array of discussions that have only a tangential connection to the DTV and I always felt weird about posting retro-computing projects to the Retrobits Podcast board. I was surprised to realize that not everyone reads all the boards. It's a shame because there are interesting discussions going on that they might find interesting, if they ever saw them.
One other thing. I noticed that you changed the order of the boards on the main page. What was the thinking there? It seems like the CML and Modem Wars & Operation Terminal boards are related to the TelBBS and Quantum Link boards but now they're separated. There might be merit in putting them together.
