  • Move fpu to fpu-type to mirror cpu-type.
  • Drop pds-type in favor of lcpds, so all slot types can be consistently named, rather than worrying about some slots having sub-types...it will make categorization easier.
    • Maybe all the slot parameters should have slots- on the name? E.g. slots-pds. We're kind of doing that with other "groupings" of things.
  • Born/died...hee hee, just had to mention I like that. ☺
  • What about os-osname to denote the various OSs it can run? E.g. os-mac, os-aux, os-linux, etc. We could categorize on that...
  • (And continuing to Template:computer specs full just to keep things together) Move adb, serial, scsi etc to ports-adb, ports-serial, etc.
  • Move cd-* to optical-* in case we expand to DVD-era machines at some point.
  • How about display-size, display-res, display-depth?
  • Flip the chimes to chime-*.

These are all just suggestions, so if they are misguided or too anal, just let me know. ☺ I really like the overall design, both graphically (nice colors and layout) and technically (fields that appear only when supplied). ⇔ ChristTrekker 15:47, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

The #specs link can be #Full Specifications as long as you name that section consistently. MediaWiki automatically makes section heads into targets (that's how the page ToC works), so you don't have to remember to put your own target in. ⇔ ChristTrekker 15:53, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I had considered that before. I didn't do it just in case people weren't consistent with the naming of the section. However, I don't think that's going to be a huge problem (and we can certainly correct it on any templates that use a different name) so I've gone ahead and changed it. It certainly looks cleaner. → ~tl (talk · contribs) 11:00, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
