Hope you can find this useful.  I hope to put this stuff together into a single document in the near future.  Possibly so I can have handouts at panels.  Handouts would make me look extra prepared, no?


  1. What a fantastic post. I intend to keep it for future reference. So much information and useful links. Thank you very much. It must have taken an age to do the research, and you’ve saved the rest of us so much time.
