I’ve been a little busy of late (including completely missing yesterday through a bourbon hazed birthday) and have neglected some questions that were asked by you folks in earlier threads – so rather than go back and chase them down when they probably no longer have anyone actually reading them, it might be better if I just mea culpa my way into a brand new post, allowing me to find a whole new bunch of poor excuses for ignoring your questions answer them all in one place! 😛
So treat this as part open thread, part requestathon and part catching up on the bits I should have answered earlier.
