I'm starting this page here, and after it gets enough info, it can be moved and/or stickied. The VIP version can be deleted. Moved into the public forums so everyone can contribute. But please, don't post skim, and only add something that applies. This isn't the final cut, just a figurative page until someone can make a more web-based model.

This isn't complete but I can't think of any more. If someone is going to correct any of this info, please site specific details and sites, not yourself.

They didn't make the move to the new server...
