This topic, and the others like it will be updated with the stats posted by other members, and myself. If there are other technical aspects that i might be missing, feel free to post them. However, while posting, quote your source of the data to keep us all honest... and use a scan if it is not online.

I will edit all the data into the first post to make it all as easy to find when referencing the info in the future.


I hope everybody finds these topis useful, and informative!
