Personally I find StackOverflow to be good for personal development. We should all spend some time trying to debug code without a compiler now and then.

Have you considering accepting any of these answers? Is there something you feel is missing that you're holding out for?

In the spirit of improving the beta, can those who voted to close, please open a post in meta explaining why this is a bad question for TGO?

comment How can you navigate / determine your location in thick fog?
This appears predicated on knowing already the direction. If I am lost in a fog and how can I determine the direction of the wind (ie, easterly) without already knowing the direction (at which point, why would I need to wind to give direction?). Please explain more how this method could be used.

I love this answer. I was ready to type up my own answer on what I do, but this is awesome! Scientific testing would be a great thing.

comment Are there performance differences between lead and lead-free ammunition?
Not sure I like the closing of this. The more I watch this and other hunting questions I see a trend of "we don't want you, go away". Hunters share a lot of outdoor crossover activities with many other groups. IMO -- ideological objects should be "left at the door" voting on questions. Our PRIMARY concern in beta should be question quality and topic appropriateness.
