These are the threads that many of us have found useful over the years. We wanted to make them easy to find for new TDC members amidst the sheer volume of information floating around the forum. There are also a few Best Of threads that are particularly relevant for TDC members. Feel free to PM me with links to other threads that you think belong in here—they do not have to be TDC threads, merely useful for TDC members.
