    Editing questions

    Is there a way to edit an old question I wrote?

    You have a limited grace period of a few hours to edit.

    But since you have only one post, what did you have in mind.

    If you have an old account, and you want to remove some specific thing from a post (like privacy information), send me a PM.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    We may still have certain restrictions on new members sending messages though.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Well I found BenSmith's alter ego posts:
    buffer overflow
    Vulnerability in c functions
    The pastebin.com link to actual source code has long since expired.
    On the off-chance that the image contained the hash of real passwords, I deleted an image.

    I didn't see anything specific in your post that might personally identify you.
