It's getting late here and I may be asking the obvious, but is there a good place to post solutions to common problems? I run across things occasionally on my job that that I've found sure-fire fixes for. Beyond my own work logs, is there a good place to share them on this board?

Well Miles, although that is somewhat opposite of what has been done here in the past, I see no reason why not.

I realize that the description for this forum indicates suggestions to make the forums better, but I would vote in favor of it also including suggestions on known fixes.

Another thought is, these fixes would be subject specific, so you could put them in that subject (i.e. harddrive repair tecnique-hardware troubleshooting, software configuration tecnique-software troubleshooting,...)
Biggest problem with that is, a good suggestion could get lost real quick. Maybe a subject line that described it as a known fix? http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/wink.gif

Looking forward to some of these

I agree, this would be a good forum. A link to this could be put at the top of the main forums page (besides suggestion link?) this would maybe take some of the burden of the server with reduced posting. Not to put a big burden on the moderators (who are overworked as it is) would it be possible to lock the post after it is inserted? so that all that shows on the page is the fix. Also if some way could be made for users to say that they have tried the fix and whethere or not it was succesful . If after a set period the concensous is that the fix does not work it coould be removed.
Just my thoughts on what could be a very useful link

I think the FAQ section is supposed to address this in a way.
