Not Quite Murphy’s Law…

Is there a name for the phenomenon described below?

  1. One has a problem developing or building something for some long period of time.
  2. In frustration makes a post to a newsgroup or other source of public support.
  3. A very short period of time later figures it out on his or her own.

It can’t be murphy’s law, because something went right for once. Or is it just something going wrong in a twisted, different way?

I was working through some tutorials for Macromedia/Adobe flex today, and was having some strange problems with the second tutorial (build a calculator) and not more than 30 minutes after posting to a yahoo group “flexbuilders”, I find the faulty configuration responsible.
