It's a good thing I read this forum predominately from work. I'd be so damn hammered from trying to keep up with Poutanen's posts.
As for the waxing, just do it. It won't matter whether you take the bindings off or not. IMO there is no right or wrong way to wax a board, just your way. Everyone will have their own way. As long as the board doesn't have an iron melted through it, then you're fine.
