Default Useful Links and Just For Fun - 12-03-2008, 10:01 PM

One of the best sites ever: http://letmegooglethatforyou.com ...

Remember all those users that come on with a question without having searched the web first? Happens all the time. Hey I have even done it myself I'm big enough to admit it. Now instead of just telling them to google it or googling it for them and posting a result or just the search results page, you can actually have a little fun with them and their search.

So a user comes to the HOWTO forum (*cough*) and starts a thread, asking "What MAC utility is there for finding recipes?" - Sure, you could paste http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 and get on with life. But wouldn't it be nicer to paste the following link?
