mulling over in my mind the idea of volunteering

And another sorcerers apprentice job for me or someone I've been mulling over is between N8VEM and N8VEM-S100 there must be dozens of builds that didn't boot because the DS1210 didn't have a battery.  So I'd change every single silkscreen across the entire project to have a label like "board will not operate without good battery installed" on every board with a DS1210.

There's a couple other things of the same class rolling around in my head.  Another was all boards shall have a test point for ground and +5 carefully labeled for testing.  No need to pickup ground off the reg heatsink ever again.  Again this level of PCB editing is probably currently beyond me, but some effort and I could figure it out...

Another one was every silkscreen should have the specific board's URL on it.  There are adafruit (or was it DP? or both?) PCBs like this.
