Sorry for my brief absence! I've been pretty busy these past few days. But, hopefully things will be back on track pretty soon.
As to a Q/A thread, I'm going to try to write something up either tonight or tomorrow. Until I authorize posting in there, just keep using this thread; I'd like to get all my information in the first set of posts, rather than dumped throughout.
Keep at those characters, and maybe we'll be able to start by next week
