Subforum for Satandisk / UltraSatan?

Post by siriushardware »

Is there any chance that we could have a sub-forum in 'Emulators and Tools' for the SatanDisk / UltraSatan?.. Or, if you think that Forum subtitle would be likely to offend someone somewhere on the planet, 'Memory card HDD emulators'

I know that Jookie is now focused on the CosmosEx but there are quite a few of us here with his earlier, equally excellent SatanDisk / UltraSatan designs and the latter are still being produced.

I think the current Hardware forum is more appropriate, SD and US aren't emulating hard drives, they -are- hard drives, albeit with non spinning disk storage.

I meant 'emulator' as in... something pretending to be original Atari hardware (As far as the Atari is concerned, Satandisk, UltraSatan, CosmosEx are indistinguishable from ACSI hard drives, just as you imply).

I was thinking of a "Satandisk and UltraSatan" specific subforum in 'Emulators and Tools', putting it alongside the existing specific threads for 'CosmosEX' and 'HxC Floppy Emulators'. Are those two subsections in the wrong place? Should they be under 'Hardware' as well?

For me it is ok to have a dedicated subforum. It eases finding relevant thread.
