The pages listed to your left explain how _I_ do things. Do not assume that this is the only way to do any of this. There are several variations you can spin off, but please use common sense in most cases.
These pages are always evolving and I don't always make it obvious when I make changes. Some things like the RS-80n3 page are always being tweeked to find better and easier ways to adapt the cords.
Browse the links, let your mind wander, and please at the very least; just gain some sort of inspiration to try something.
As always, if you need clarifications, let me know.
