Steph Posted August 16, 2007 Report Share Posted August 16, 2007 Notable Threads & Other Resources [This is quite dated -- probably many broken links again -- but I'll leave it up awhile longer at least.] This started out as one long list. As it became even longer I broke it up into smaller, more manageable lists. I still haven't read every thread on the board. Even when I think I have "finished", I'm sure I'll have missed something interesting. What I'm getting at is if you have any leads on good threads to include, they are ALWAYS WELCOME. Thanks! MAJOR new resource. Already great.
