This thread is a read only "best of" thread, the object of which is to have interesting & informative posts with links to the original threads in a centralized location for easy viewing by everybody. This also eliminates having too many threads pinned to the top of the forum. This thread will be a continuous work in progress, so check back often. If you come across a thread that you think should be included in this "best of" thread, please let me or another moderator know.

Enjoy! :)
