Greenhouse Effect

Once he had the answer, Arrhenius complained to his friends that he'd "wasted over a full year" doing tedious calculations by hand about "so trifling a matter" as hypothetical CO2 concentrations in far-off eras (quoted in Crawford, 1997).

My problem with threads like this is there tends to be one person at the bottom who replies "Never mind, fixed it" but never provides their solution!

I haven't read an xkcd that rang so true in awhile. What's best is when you post a solution to one of those threads and you get people for years thanking you profusely. I definitely agree with the sentiment though. I'd probably be friends with anyone who has drudged through that kind of technical nuance to overcome an issue.

+1 to that. I think it's one the few aspects left of the internet that resembles the early internet. Most everything else has been taken over by big corps, but such conversations deep in some forum threads remind me of the 20-25+ years ago…

It is a shame traditional messageboards died out, those are a treasure trove of problem solving and bug finding. Reddit kind of filled that hole but with it's enshittification that is no longer the case. Many users switched to Discord which is impossible to search.

I posted how two fix something in a reddit thread two years ago and get one reply a month on average with 'oh my god it solved it thanks'

I haven’t used Stack Overflow much for about a decade but every time I login I see points accumulating from a couple of answers I made back around 2010. Now I kind of feel sorry for anyone who’s still finding at least the jQuery one useful.
