Super User – Q and A for computer minded people


It’s one of those days, you’re running the friends-and-family IT support desk and the person on the other end of the phone has done something inexplicable.

Before you start a-googlin’ check in with Super User, a Q&A site where computer people who seem to know what they’re doing ask questions and give answers. It’s collaboratively edited, and if you create an (optional) account you can vote on answers to raise or lower their rankings. Well worth a visit on a slow helpdesk day.

Super User is a Q&A site for computer enthusiasts that’s free. Free to ask questions, free to answer questions, free to read, free to index, built with plain old HTML, no fake rot13 text on the home page, no scammy google-cloaking tactics, no salespeople, no JavaScript windows dropping down in front of the answer asking for $12.95 to go away.
