Independent Software Vendor (ISV) - The Road I Travelled, Process Bullets

After some deliberation, the recommendation to list the processes named in the 3-part Process blog entries in a single, grouped list was taken to heart. Here is the list plus a couple other topics that I haven't encountered. Promarily because I haven't had to deal with them. You may, however. The parenthetical number is the number from the 3 part blog series. Items 1 - 15 are from part 1; 16 - 23 from part 2 & the balance from part 3.
