tnnn3946yI know the feeling...
I just wonder what is worse - forgetting to post a solution or posting a link to a page with solution that leads to 404 with no wayback machine available.
chenb0x17206yOh.... Fuck do I hate this..
cftw1866yObligatory relevant xkcd: https://xkcd.com/979/
Also important to check the usernames in the thread. The OP could be yourself...
@andersoyvind Yes! This happens sometimes. Either "it's really time I learn how to do this -> find solution on stackoverflow, where I already +1'd half the suggested answers"... And either wrote the question myself, or even the answer :s
lexxer7206yEvery. Fuckin. Time.
At least a cliff hanger would have been fine, like a solution is on this or that (404) page....
Often my issue is that a solution from 2004 will somehow be deprecated :/
@tahnik You made me think of this xkcd
You are not alone...
I think we all can relate
@longshorts this happened also, oh god
I hate it too. But luckily one forum I used to visit had a strict rule about this very thing. Share or get perma-banned. Sharing is caring yo.
toXel3616y@bowvernon110391 please tell us the name of this wonderful place!
@toXel oh it's a game programming forum. There's a general programming section in there though. It's www.gamedev.net
That's when I take solace in the fact that there exists a solution. But then there is a bit of despair because I'm no closer.
DenverCoder9!!? Is that you?
woohkies786yI can totally relate to that
Finally I found a webpage related to my bug.
The page is from 2004.
"Yes, yes! This is exactly the problem I'm having"
*Carefully reading each comments*
*Looking at scroll bar with stress*
*Almost coming to end, no signs of solution*
At the end the thread creator say: "Ah finally I've fixed the problem. Thanks everyone for helping"
*moment of silence*
WHY U NO SHARE THE GOD DAMN SOLUTION? YOU FUCKING IDIOT
