Some background information

I started writing this series with what became CCII_22 and followed with CCII_23, only to realize that things were not going well. Both the articles were suffering and I was having failures of all sorts. I decided that I must have missed something in my previous research. So I started again from scratch by re-reading the A5 SRM from top to bottom. I knew I had missed things, so I kept real close attention looking for any sort of "gotchas" and of course I found plenty. That got me looking at other web pages and docs to only find more items I skipped over and paths I didn't follow. The results of this on-going investigation is this page - really a "oops" page if you will, that hopefully will help you get off with a better start and skip all the stumbles.

Please note I have for the moment decided to just drop the facts into list entries and will be updating this page as I find new facts. So come back often to see if there are updates. So here are some facts, pointers, links, gotchas, and whatevers to get you started.
