Request: "Networking" section for the Forum

Request: "Networking" section for the Forum
The title pretty much sums it up - I think it may be useful to have a "Networking" section of the forum.

This because for networking (be it ZigBee, Ethernet, WiFi, RS-485, zWave or the myriad other forms of connecting stuff) to work, it requires BOTH hardware AND software (and usually, the two need to work close together Cool )

Admins, what do you say?

It is easier to complain than it is to do, but it is better to do than it is to complain.

Would it be better to call it Communications? That way USB and other things would naturally be included.

That's if it's worth having, and I don't know on that!

Communications it is, then....

I believe that is a very important part of computing nowadays, wouldn't you agree?

I believe that this is quite different - "interfacing" (as I see it) has more to do with connecting the Pinguinos to other (as in 1,2,3) devices physically.

Communications/Networking (etiher work for me) is about getting Pinguinos to talk to other "intelligent" devices remotely, ultimately to the Inernet/"Cloud".

In fact, one of the reasons I made this suggestion is precisely because of this difference (you don't usually talk of interfacing "x" device to the internet, but you DO talk about interfacing to a motor, local bus, etc...)
