I wouldn't worry too much about the node being approved or front-paged. And if you're dying for an answer, mention the node in the CB and just about any time of day, a few people will check it out, approving and front-paging as necessary. And there are others who ignore the CB and check out Newest Nodes (that's how I saw this thread).
And sometimes, when you're dying for an answer, the best thing to do is to set it aside for a while and then come back to it later. I've solved more than one thorny problem while walking to the bank or making coffee, and letting my mind wander.
