As part of running this site, I get asked a lot of questions. I try my best to answer them all, but over the years I’ve noticed a few questions that keep popping up every couple of weeks. So, in a long-overdue move, I’ve decided to add a “Frequently Asked Questions” page to the sidebar on the right.

On this page, I’ll try to answer questions and link to older posts that have some good info on the topic. There’s a few good questions up there now, but I’ll be adding to it as people continue asking questions – so if you’ve got something on your mind, feel free to send me an email or leave a comment.
