Does anyone remember what thread it was where someone proposed a "standard" placement for each accessory board? I like the idea of everyone there being a standard so that all (many) of the demo programs we write will "just work" on anyone's setup without having to re-order board or rename pins in the code.

The enclosure is pretty good. The only thing I have found that the engineering of the enclosure did not have the data of the accessory boards dimensions. If any body wants I can have the enclosure re re done. Give me your thoughts on this. Please give me your design ideas.
Send me a direct message please,

I will admit to being wrong about the "just specify basepin" thing in one respect -- in Spin2, every blasted reference to the pins has to be split between OUTA/OUTB and DIRA/DIRB depending on whether you're in the top or bottom 32. That is a real nuisance when writing general purpose use-any-pin code. I can understand why you have to be aware that you can't do something like OUT[24..37], because of the pin 32 barrier, but with banks of 8 surely there should be a way to make common code that works on any basepin?
Dual-header accessory with as much HyperRAM that fits.
Single-header breakout for the Parallax WiFi module (and thus XB footprint devices too).

My wish list is for the Diptrace files for the Accessory boards. That way we came design our own.
