Sync Speed Explained

Anyways, whilst wandering the interweb reading up on lighting I came across something called the Flash Sync Speed (or Max Sync Speed), which put simply is the maximum speed at which your camera can take a photo and still get the flash to hit the entire sensor. Took me while to figure it all out and why it's important - so I thought I'd post some links that helped explain:
