Personally, I pay very little attention to FFA topics, as I view them as dump sites for misc. material of dubious value (or something like that).
I'm now guessing that much has happened in this topic that should have been in more theme specific topics in the "non-garbage dump" forums. Thus, I'm going to close this one down and force those good themes to find a better home. At those better homes, feel free to link back to this topic - But the relevant text should be included in the "better home".
Closing in no less than 15 minutes.
