Finally I found a webpage related to my bug.

The page is from 2004.

*keeps reading*

"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*

    I 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.

    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

    Every. 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 :/

    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.

    @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.

    It's rough.
