I'm a computer kinda guy. I started in 1978 when I was just 14. I'm *nothing* like the 'Neos' that like to do everything at the lowest level while gaming, listening to rock music and sipping on Red Bull. I just want to get things done, without hassle. I think most people do.

I'm working on a project to get me on the road full time; CounterMoon.org. I'm just one guy, with one kind of posting in mind: the technical goodies I find, that other people can use. Sometimes it's a new vehicular wireless, most of the time it's ideas you can get from the trash! I'm deeply impoverished, and do the project to keep my sanity.

Speaking of keeping sanity... :> If there was a technical forum intended for computers/communication/etc (as opposed to the technicals of jacks, paint coatings, and that sort of thing) I think it'd be easier to stay out of everyone's way, who isn't interested.

I don't know how much trouble it is to both create and maintain another forum; maybe it's a burden. I'd just like to suggest it, so the non-interested folks won't have to get involved.

Sounds like something of interest wheeldweller, possibly you could also incorporate satellite communications, and techno-goodies into the forum? I've installed almost every satellite dish there is and try to keep up with all the related technology, and I know there's other members who are knowledgeable in these fields as well.. it sounds like a very beneficial forum for the community.. Internet, computers, t.v. phones.. all vital to the modern camper, after all, we need our toys, lol

I've seen several other forums with as many as three forum 'channels': Computers, Satellite, and "Other Tech" (paint, lug nuts, leak-stopping, etc).

My only concern is that my humble offerings won't be of interest to a large portion of the audience; tent-campers, for instance. And usually tech-friendly folks tend to cluster. I was just thinking of making it a "you're surrounded in tech because you want to be here" situation.

But I also understand a forum that grows unnecessarily, too: more areas mean more areas to police, and a slight burden on the machine. I suspect management is saavy in delaying the creation of such a forum until they see there's enough traffic to warrant it. It's my understanding they're not new to this job. :) And that's good, too.
