Actually I think it is bang on topic.

One of the most common benefits of any online community 
is the way we are foced to think about propblems to write 
them down. Doing so ioften brings new solutions to mind.

In fact I often find solutioons to my own problems while 
replying to others! - even on seemingly unrelated issues :-)

And of course if the solution doesn't come you have the 
2nd level support option of actually posting and getting 
replies! :-)
