Happened to mee too, quite a few times: when pondering for some time over a difficult problem, I'll end up asking someone else. But because I first need to explain the problem in a way that another can understand, I am also forced to clearly lay out what, exactly my problem is - and then it turns out, once I've done this, I realize something I wasn't aware of, as well as a new approached based on this realization.

I deliberately use this now by imagining to explain it to someone else. Or I write my problem description and question(s) down as I would when posting it to a forum. This is sometimes enough to get me thinking on new approaches, or even new solutions.

Now I am wondering whether the reason why so many questions posted here seem so badly formulated: maybe those people who managed to formulated their questios well never posted them, because in doing so, they found a solution. Wink | ;-)
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
