We need some white papers on some of the specs that we use.

The LaserBoy Wave extensions.
The LaserBoy ASCII text laser frames file format.
The sound card, correction amp combination.
Single ended vs. differential wiring from the DAC to the projector.

I would imagine there are other things; like how to wire a drlava flexmod driver and stuff....

LaserBoy is one word; 8 characters, capital L & B.

It's also an ascii tag in the wave header!

And, for that matter, you CAN make shows with LaserBoy, with stereo sound included!

So how do we proceed with this?   Does anyone have any experience with anything like this?

I have released software before and made DVD's and ISOs so it is like this but does anyone have any ideas to get started quickly and not get bogged down in detailing ourselves to death?

Do you think it should be burned to a disc?

Once I get rolling again, I like to update my code regularly.

Maybe it should just be a place on the web that describes all of this and has links to get it.

That would also help to solve who gets paid for what.

Links are OK.   I think an ISO should be released occasionally so that people don't have to go everywhere to get it all.   Sometimes links go bad... things disappear.

I would like to approach the authors requesting money for a functional demo version maybe...  like shareware...

Who knows... I don't have all the answers.

I would like to see an ISO.

Probably to answer my question is:

1) Assemble the big list of programs and stuff to put on it.
2) Build an ISO and overview document (HTML)
Release Round 1
3) Build all the rest of the documentation...
Release Round 2
4) Occasionally go through and update it.
Release Successive Rounds...

Thanks for everyone's input so far.

I can dig it. Once you have a collection of stuff, you HAVE it.

Anyone who contributes can just as easily make reference to a place to get the latest version and the 'what's new'.

I wish I was in a position to say "Here you go!", but my stuff is nowhere near in the shape I want it to be.  :P :-\
