There was a side discussion in another recent thread on the difference between tracking and non-tracking consoles. I thought it was important enough to start a new thread. This recent article in PLSN is one of the better articles on the topic I've read. In the upper right corner is a button to generate a PDF to save on your computer for future reference. If some time in the future this link does not work contact me and I'll send you a pdf copy.

Good link, Gafftaper. Much of the information is expounded upon in Brad's book, The Automated Lighting Programmer's Handbook, Brad Schiller. Focal Press, 2004.

Also, here is a link to a show that is probably best programmed with tracking off, or Q-only, other than the builds. They called it "The Redneck Worlds of Winter" where I found it.
