Because this is staffed by volunteers, we tend to answer questions that
are specific enough for us to give answers to. For example, I don't answer
any questions that seem to be Windows-related as I've never owned a
Windows machine. As 99% of the "how do I run a script" type of problem
seems to come from Windows users, I tend to overlook them personally. I am
mostly familiar with Python on Unix and, to some extent, on a Macintosh.

Occasionally, questions slip through the cracks. While we try, we
certainly don't guarantee answers. You're free to ask again, though
perhaps the problem was too little information?
