Thanks to all those who voted in the first, second and third votes for deciding on a new name for the Usenet newsgroup alt.comp.hardware.homebuilt. If you haven't seen them, the results can be found here and the list of initial choices for the first vote here.
Update: 23 May 1998
As a result of this, the group name comp.arch.homedesigned was chosen, which was modified to comp.arch.home-designed when it went to RFD (Request for Discussion). After suggestions in the RFD process, a second RFD was issued with the revised name comp.arch.hobbyist, which is now (May 1998) in discussion. The RFDs can be found here.
Update: 5 July 1998
I'd like to thank everyone who helped in the pre-RFD stage, everyone on the mailing list who helped in the long months spent drafting and tweaking the RFD (to name a few Jan-Derk Bakker, Randy Gardner, Darren Guiden, Leon Heller, Ales Hvezda, Mark Sokos, Ian Stirling and Ben Stuyts), those who made useful comments as a result of the first and second RFDs, and those who voted in the final CFV.
