Asking a question on Stack Overflow

I swallowed hard today and posted my first ever question on Stack Overflow.

I have composed many posts before and never hit the submit button.  I always have stumbled into the solution, but alas no such luck this time. So I enclosed as much information as I thought was needed, overcame my resistance about asking for support and gave myself permission to look foolish.

I have googled and googled and googled and have not found anything yet to push me past this issue so I decided it was time to ask for help.

As part of the learning repetition I like to follow a tutorial and then try and build the same application again after I have it working without looking at the working code and then add some CSS to make the second app look a bit nicer. I can’t do part 2 if I can’t get part 1 working.

It has been almost two hours or so and no comments yet, good or bad.

Have you ever asked a question on Stack Overflow?
