Meta-Ask: We know Ask MeFI is great, but sometimes you need to dig deeper among a smaller but more spedialised crowd. So which are your favourite "Ask X" sites?

I am in love with Stack Overflow
, and I have found only yesterday that Instructables have started an Answers
section that could be called "Ask Instructables". I like the format more than that of forums, so am curious to know which other "Ask X" websites mefites would recommend for specialist topics.
Old-style forum software is fine, I guess, but I dn't know what makes it less useful to me than a format closer to that of Ask MeFi / Ask Slashdot / Stack Overflow / Instructables Answers. So if you know of an "Ask/Answers" site, please mention it even though it may not be your first go-to resource on a given topic.
