I imagine that at some stage someone is going to start going through the
archives and collating this information. I am in the process of adding a
rating system to the alsa soundcard matrix which could serve as the
place to display it.
I have the basic page ready now (learnt how to do php classes properly
last night too :). I need access to the mysql server on the alsa site
before I will start working on the code for the system.
I appreciate if people would give me some ideas on what they would like
to see represented.
