Happy christmas everyone....

Some time ago someone suggested the idea of solving a tech problem by
explaining something to you teddy. He is very stupid so it makes sure you
explain it well. Sometimes the process of explaining makes you find the
thing the clue you have missed.
I cant put my finger on where it came from (does it matter). Google is
taking me to all sorts of sites like "how to make teddies" and "why teddies
are called ted".

I find it SOMETIMES explaining helps, but sometimes can get you further
into the misunderstanding that is causing the problem. Googling for a
solution when you are looking at a bad solution...  Asking on Stackoverflow
and like can be same:
  "You dont want to do X, you want to do Y" "Yes in an ideal wolrd but if I
do Y I will ahve a partial X and partial Y"....
Any thoughts...
