There are 5 core posts dealing with this topic on the site. The rest of the related posts in the run are there Because It's A Blog, but only five of those posts directly tackle the issue. (This dvd bonus post included in the full run is also worth perusing. Let's call that entry 5.1.)
My hope is this entry will fix the index problems people linking have had trying to access the core posts over the years. We'll see. I'm making this up as I go along, people. I'm fully aware of the amount of housekeeping I need to do in this space, but I've just not had time to get to it all.
The Chaotic Neutral approach of my homeport's organization will have to stand until I hve a significant stretch of free time available to do something about it. Same with the wiggy formatting things in some of the 5 core posts. That's a TypePad quirk with older posts. I've tried to fix them over the years but it doesn't hold. The formatting issues are minor: the information is major. Please overlook the former for sake of the latter.
