Yeah, I'm still working on a few things. Moved back to England recently, so not had much time to hang around on the forum, or do much of anything really.
But Will get back into the swing of things soon enough.
And yeah, I think that's pretty much it. Use all quads if that's what serves you best for your particular project. Use triangles if they will help you. Just make a conscience effort to place them well. In the end it's the final piece that counts.
As for N-gons, I see them as more of a mean to an end. They really let you model freely... so you don't have to worry about Triangles or weather your mesh is all quads.
