Hi folks!

I've had no chance to catch up with livejournal for several weeks now, so apologies to everyone I've been failing to read. With a bit of luck I might get chance to catch up at some point!

At any rate, last weekend was BiCon and there are a few topics that came up which I wanted to follow up of which this is the first.

Poly 201
