Putting Google to work

I don't know how many others use Google as a problem solving tool, but I use it all the time.

I had a problem yesterday, jumpstarting Solaris 10 onto a workstation. Couldn't find the jumpstart directory. So plan A is to drop the error into Google and see what we get.

Bingo! The right answer comes straight back. Yup, simple netmask mismatch.

It's not just that, though. I was intrigued to see that Sun use google for making Solaris development decisions.

Heck, what would we do without Google?
