Recipes? and other question

I remember from a few years ago there was this guy and he was like a god here for his soil recipes. I checked the FAQ on the soil forum and did a search but can't find what I'm looking for. Anybody know the threads I'm talking about?

If not, I need a recipe for self watering planter boxes. I need either your normal self watering planter recipe, or one for drought tolerant/alpine/succulent plants.

As for my other question:

I have self watering planters but I have succulent type plants. Do I use just a regular all purpose self watering soil mixture, or do I need one fine tuned for succulent type plants?
