howdy from hickstown alabama where we designed the shuttle. Just thought I
would let you folks know I am around and put in my 2c worth on something
I see being debated.

There seems to be too much concern with how designs are made and voted etc.
Folks, let me tell you that this won't work. You should stick with as
much flexibility and use this as a means of exchanging ideas. You will bog
yourself down if you step into the political arena of trying to vote on a
specific design. I know, that is how we design things here at Marshal.
That is why the computers that run the shuttle are still of 1960's design.
Besides, some of us lurkers are not engineers. But we are interested in how
to build something like this. Also, there is no single solution to the
task at hand.
