Frequently Asked Questions

Hello! I resisted the idea of having an FAQ here in my site because there was a time I felt I could answer all questions sent to me by email. However, the volume of email I have received in the past few years have multiplied to the point that I can no longer cope, much to my chagrin.

Most people have very similar questions which I had already answered to someone several times before. It's so time consuming to answer the questions all over again so I thought I'd finally give in and do an FAQ. So here it is.
