The world has officially become extremely silly. The surprising thing is, it’s actually useful – at least for me. A number of times I’ve wanted to find my old answers to questions, so I can either just refer to them in a new answer or mark the new question as a dupe. You might have thought that a simple search such as
exceptions site:stackoverflow.com “jon skeet”
would suffice – but that finds what other people have said about exceptions in the same questions that I’ve been active in, and it also picks up any questions which happened to get one of the FinalBuilder adverts when the spider fetched them. The equivalent search on AskJonSkeet.com gets good results.
I’ve no idea how useful it will be for anyone else, but personally I love it. Ego? What ego?
Side note to self, puncturing ego slightly: don’t blog on the tube. It’s way too easy to miss your stop…
