When you are in "the zone" and suddenly are confronted with an issue that causes you to stumble, being able to get the issue resolved quickly can be quite valuable.
If you can get back on track within 10-15 minutes, you can maintain the line of thought that you had going into the issue. Pausing production for 15-60 minutes for a reply to a ThreadBased post may be better than shifting activities, because shifting back has a certain amount of overhead.
Having to wait a few days for a response is getting close to worthless. Much more than a week and you barely remember what the problem was.
For the quickest response, see Vfp Chats.
