Well and Truly Bug.gd

Here's an interesting application of Linus's Law: "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow". The site bug.gd puts up an error message, and hopes someone can explain what to do. The frightening thing is this fact from TechCrunch:

Bug.gd has been seeded with 60,000 error messages and solution from Microsoft

Microsoft has solved 60,000 error messages? So how many million are left?

Thanks for taking the time to review bug.gd!
bug.gd now has a Firefox add-on that makes it even easier to use.

A lot of power users like this approach- tech support professionals especially (of course it's still all free).
