Hi all,
please advise of any posts that seem worthy of being added to the FAQ's so that we can update them.
Either contact myself or one of the mods and we'll get it sorted.
This is for the future benefit of ALL.

In the meantime I'm locking this thread so it doesn't get diluted with many responses taking away from the original intention of the post.
