This thread has almost 300 replies. The original poster, TomC, after posting six times, hasn't contributed to this thread since September of last year. I haven't followed this thread, but judging from the last few pages, this thread is no longer about a review, it's a "catch-all" thread. As suggested in the site's Guidelines on mega threads
, contributors should consider starting their own thread with a narrower subject (see How do I ask a good question?
for helpful tips). If contributors would like to split related posts into a new thread on a more specific subject, please contact me offline and I'll take care of it.
To encourage migration away from this catch-all thread, this thread is closed barring Tom's objection.
