mission 101 - 19/101

Complete 101 pre-set tasks in a period of 1001 days. Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part). For mission101</lj>, with some shamelessly gakked from jenwryn's list - which kicked me into posting mine - as they were good goals!

In progress
Red = dependant on other item
Blue = other items dependant on it
