I am not quite silent key... But I have had health issues. I had a health scare at the beginning of 2019, that led to a delay in posting updates, but things returned to normal with time out, stress reduction and exercise and dietary changes. Unfortunately the problems then returned in 2020. I had two vertebrae collapse in my lower back in March and April and was diagnosed in March with terminal cancer (Multiple Myeloma) with some high risk factors. I am nearing the end of Chemo treatment (and facing heavy fatigue and brain muddle at this point in the cycle). Next month I will have a bone marrow transplant that will really knock me back for a few weeks, but all of this treatment will be worth it, if it puts me into remission for a while! Early signs are positive.
So the site is frozen as at the beginning of January this year. I have prioritised input into Wellington Branch 50 NZART (www.zl2wb.com) where I am chair, and into maintaining our RemoteDX project (remotedx.nz), but I have stepped down as Chair.
I think others comments about the v6 stifling development are correct. It is now a fully self-contained unit with case and graphical display and the issues have largely been addressed (except it still doesn't have an AGC and Ashhar doesn't see this as a problem), and this has opened the kit up to a wider group of amateurs who would not have previously considered the build. The questions on the forum seem to be more in the "basic questions" category as a result. This is less of a need for the website for the majority of buiders.
What concerns me is that ubitx.net does have some issues with accuracy and it needs to have v6 material added into the advice sections (menu items at the top). The other longer-standing issue, is that there really isn't a consolidated repository and guide for the Nextion add-on. In fact this is a real frustration for many amateurs looking to switch out to the NExtion display. If somebody had the time to work on either tidying up work, or consolidating Nextion downloads and guidance I am sure that the wider uBITx community would benefit immensely!
