I hate to distract the list again considering I have yet to input any direct
netbsd/dc code into the project (to be blunt you guys are in a leaguge

However, I am in the same boat as Tim here.  I am competent, just not
experienced in this area.  For example my own personal project right now is
redoing Napster (which is going quite well, making it a universal [ie
big/little endian compatable] library in c++).  Anyway.......

Maybe we should make a seperate list for people like us to discuss things
and to keep them out of the more expereinced developers list.  Not to say I
(we) can't contribute to this list or the codebase, and I do plan to keep on
this list and hopefully help out, but I have a lot of questions to ask, and
to many ideas to spread that are probably futile towards this project to
anyone who does truly understand the code behind it.

End rant/proposal.

BTW, is their an offical webpage out there that links up details on not only
this port, but also hacking DC in general.  Why duplicate effort you know?
