Validation and self-worth!

I had an answer accepted as the answer on Stack Overflow! I answered this question absolutely ages ago, not expecting it to go anywhere (the question had already been answered, but I felt it was a valid, different approach) but slowly, over the months, it’s been up-voted (until, I am pleased to say, it had a vote more than the accepted answer) and at the weekend the accepted answer was actually changed to my one.

It makes me feel good, anyway. Now I just need to try hard and see if I can get some more – rather than my usual activity on there, asking tricky questions for which there isn’t an easy answer (or in one deleted case, a simple answer I should really have spotted myself).

Anyway, I answered a question: Woohoo!
