If you’re stuck with something before trying to re-invent the wheel ask people who have probably been there already.

Try their search functions first as you’ll probably find others have asked the same question but if that’s no help don’t be afraid to ASK! Many posts on this blog are the result of questions that arrive in my in-box or comments.
