I take no responsibility for damaged hardware, CD-Rs turned into coasters
or frisbees, time lost, or any other damages you incur as a result of
reading this FAQ. Information on specific models of hardware and software
is based on *opinions* of other users, not scientific studies. I am not
an expert in this (or any other) field. Everything here could be a total
malicious lie, and should be treated as such. You have been warned.
I don't get paid to plug anybody's software or equipment. The sections
on "what XXX should I buy" are not here because I want to sway purchases
one way or another, they're here because the questions are asked *a lot*,
and the answers are pretty consistent. You are invited and encouraged to
investigate the capabilities and reputations of all products.
