Now obviously people out there will think that there are some links missing to this bible and that is obviously true. That is where you guys come in. If you think that there is a useful link that should be in here the PLEASE post it and I will add to it. The bigger this thing is the better.

Oh and to some of the sites you have to be a registered user (and some you even have to have a certain amount of posts like night-stalkers) before you can view the material. I wish that this wasn't the case because information should be readily available but I guess I see where they are coming from.

Well thanks for looking

the problem with noobs (including myself) is that they look through the topic titles and after looking though only a few pages in one forum, get bored and say f*** this, and post away. some dont even look at the stickys
