****system will not let me modify the org, so this is what should have been posted.****
I'll take the grumpy old man up on that, and we'll see who can be the grumpier.
I'm fairly new to hacking this thing, I got started about two years ago, and thought it had bought the farm so I stopped. Checking it just before trashing it indicated that it was OK. So I'm back at it.
Originally, I had thought about getting a moderated forum (read only) for the postings (or just an area to post messages). But if you want a separate web, we can go that way. I can host it to start with, getting it setup and pictures and stuff (it would have to have pictures I guess, you are right about that).
As far are where to start? Since I'm starting again, I should be some help there.
1) Let's start with obtaining them, since I just had a post about that.
2) Then how about things Not to do unless that does not apply, I remember there was a big thing about not turning it on when I started two years ago.
3)Identification if it means anything (is any model identification needed?)
4)a summary of what's needed, what you can do (processor, audio, USB, etc...).
5) maybe some specs such as processor, memory type.
That should be enough to start with. Since I've got a new unit, I can start taking pictures. It would be nice if all the pictures were in the same format type, so I'll take pics as I move along.
Since I'm laid up with a bad back, I've got time to work on it. But mind you, I'm not a professional writer or anything, just another hack wanting to present the information in a more concise form for others. Also have a nice digital camera with macro lenses, so I can get in there to show detail.
I really didn't think anybody would take me up on it, but I'm motivated now. Shoot me an email so we can get together on a more timely level and get to know each other a little more. And shoot me what info you have to get started with. If somebody else if going to be hosting the end product, we'll keep it pretty generic.
This can take a while. Creating drawings and converting to JPG etc... Up to it?
