haven't quite figured out how to take a selfie, yet... oh well.
anyway, here's the scoop: every time I'm googling how to do something, like with WP functions and calls, etc, or some more-complex CSS3 or jQuery stuff, I almost always end up with results from two different sources: either WP's codex docs and forums (useless, typically), or something from StackOverflow - and I ALWAYS end up finding my answer at StackOverflow.
Have you heard of them? The people in there are helpful, and generally quite brilliant! ;)
