Unfortunately you have hit the mark. This site is still in its infancy, and all that can be done is for each of us to evangelize relentlessly. What that means for you, is that today, with this question, you're stuck between a rock and a hardplace.
However, don't get too discouraged, the intent of this site was always to find the hard questions, and to get them in front of people so we can get more of the dba's like you're wanting to have here. This is an opportunity to ask for help, so if you think it's worth the trouble, you could always hit twitter's #sqlhelp to see if someone can contribute to the Q. There is a twitter link to the left of the questionbody. But since I've already done that once, and don't wanna be seen as spamming that feed, I'm gonna ask that each of us posit our own Qs to that hashtag when we have a need. Maybe eventually some of those guys will start coming here on a regular basis. I know we already have two users from that braintrust on here, and I know that guys like mrdenny are really strong in the community.
As for the bounty itself, when it expires this evening, it will be gone if you don't have someone to award it to. Your options are to award it to mrdenny or to let it fall away. FWIW I don't mind upping the bounty to a larger one after this one expires, if that would help you feel better. (out of my own pocket, as it were)
