Master List of Useful Threads

As a service, and to minimize whining about duplicative threads, we should maintain a master list of useful threads that can be bumped daily, since there is no "stickying" here. Let me know if there are other threads with useful information from multiple members on a topic of general interest and I'll add it. If you have ever bitched/moaned about duplicative threads, you have a moral obligation to help and point out any top notch threads that are missing.
