Hi. I appreciate methods as well. I appreciate them so much that whenever there is a new reply in this topic, I check it, hoping to find more techniques. But all I find are people saying how great the techniques already described are! If this is going to remain a "sticky" post, it would be great if people recommended their own techniques, or shared experiences of how the listed methods are working out for them! Just a suggestion, forum masters.
Otherwise, I fear this post is outside the definition of a forum. A forum is a place where many people interact and share data and experiences. It's not a place where one person, call him or her the "author", writes a paper that the rest of as as passive "readers" just read and comment on how thankful we are.
