Topics can include pretty much anything "technical" in nature. Ex. wifi issues, X server configuration, failed hard drives, building robots, firewalls, video card problems, etc.
I only ask for a few pre-requisites:
- That you make an attempt to diagnose your problem before posting here (Google is a great first resource!).
Provide all necessary details:Relevant information whether that be your operating system, specific hardware details, or anything else that will aid those volunteering their time to help you. (I do not want to assume you use Windows. That is annoying.)
Thank you and good luck!

For those of you answering requests for help:
Please only post if you have something to say that will help the person solve the problem. Posts that are unhelpful or imply that the OP is stupid for asking or for being unable to find the answer on their own are likely to be removed. Thanks!
We now have an on-going competition of sorts for arbitrary points and absolutely no reward, other than the respect of people you don't know. Once your problem has been solved, please make a post in the Points! thread stating who provided helpful suggestions and/or who ultimately provided the correct solution.
Now, I can't make you do this. But, it will be a nice gesture and give some amount of recognition to those willing to go out of their way to share their time/knowledge. This basically amounts to positive reinforcement within the community, which I find to be of value in and of itself.
