Thanks for the 8BB site. Nothing new there since early January, and it looks like the forums are acting a little doddgy right now. But once it's available it's just was I'm looking for. I looked at the Jameco site, but the closest they have is ISA prototying boards. I guess I could make this work with some dremmeling, but if the 8BB is imminent it would be worth waiting for. I'm still a long way from the point of putting soldiering iron to proto board, anyway.
