Well looking for certain info while caching everything.
And thanks for the info.
Dude, do you have any idea what Google is?
Even by using Google you can never find out what was really meant by something nor the real answer to some questions. Such as someone could have meant something completely different from what is found on Google or Wikipedia, etc. It is and easier task to just ask the person, plus I was just speaking my mind in the last post... Sorry about that.
I wasn't berating you if you took that in offense, rather I was trying to provoke you to slap yourself in the forehead. (A moment of realization, in other words)
Google is a search engine, considered to have one of the best spidering systems out there. The spiders collect keywords and stuff for search engines to index so people looking for those things find those sites. Everything would be word of mouth otherwise (which doesn't work out as well as it'd seem for some people). I don't get what you're trying to say; Google itself isn't a Q&A service at its core, though it does have a Questions service where the community can answer questions. As far as getting information, I find people are quite difficult in divulging information in an actually usable format (people often go off answering a completely different problem, evidenced when things don't work out the way they describe it). Searching through Google is like surfing a book's index; it takes a bit of skill, and only you're to blame if you don't get the right answer.
And that was a pretty wide range shot there. Hopefully I managed to rope you back in.
