Famous last words and Search

I must have tempted fate in my last blog when I said that if I didn’t post in awhile, I would still be alive… This past weekend I had a skiing accident in PA that broke and lacerated my nose. Also an old neck injust was reinjured and my hand is now in a slint. I am happy though because today I found out from the specialist that surgery would not be needed. Whew.

The only other thought on my mind today has to do with the use of the holy search button. Why is it that some developers either don’t know how or simply are too lazy to use it? I’m not pointing fingers here, and I do understand that it can be difficult to search for something when you don’t exactly what it is your searching for. However it seems to me that one of the most important skills a developer needs is how conduct research on new subjects.
