Post the answer (preferably as a community wiki post, since the asker was the one who figured it out) and wait for someone to upvote it.

For answers discovered later by dint of effort while waiting for SO to help, I don't feel there is any need for CW. This is different (at least in my view) from answers prepared as the question was being written and posted promptly as a FYI service. –  dmckee Dec 8 '10 at 16:04

@dmckee - I think this is more about giving appropriate credit. If the answer was posted as a comment, you can go back and repost it as an answer yourself, but don't try to earn rep for someone else's work. –  Joel Coehoorn Dec 8 '10 at 17:39
    
@Joel: Ah. Missed that. Yes, CW when it's someone else' work. –  dmckee Dec 8 '10 at 23:30
