Does anyone know of any board where I can post those kind of Qs?

Quite correct!

Yes, your post (this one) actually made me think some :)

However, that does not mean that a question needs to difficult or hard
to
answer. Different levels of "techies" also find different questions
challanging. Most (or at least a lot) of the things I know about Apache
comes from research when I've answered questions!

Even though the "make techies think" aspect is important, I don't find
it to
be the most important factor in how the person/question is recieved. A
person (newbie or not) who has made a lot of incorrect and stupid
assumptions and then demand someone else to fix their problem, I think
"f*ck
you". A newbie who is truely lost and tries to express his/hers
situation as
well as possible, while also displaying a willingness to do their part
(eg.
learn), I think "hope we can help this guy".

So, don't worry if your questions are "hard" or not, rather how they and
yourself is presented, and all will be well.

Robert Andersson
