    The question exists. It is a couple of months old. There are no responses to it.

    No, the best scenario is when you search it and find an SO question, but it's actually an unanswered question *you* wrote a few months back and forgot about.

    @refi64 I sometimes self-answer questions on Stackoverflow for that very reason if I find the answer somewhere else. The number of times I've then found answers that I wrote to my own questions is then a bit scary.
