  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Actually  R. Andom really coined the line first, but Orwell used it well.

If we are showing what knowledge google produces when searching a term :P

While we are off showing off knowledge. This is one line where the translation comes out BETTER then the original. When translated to Hebrew:
כל בני האדם שוים, אבל יש כאלה ששוים יותר

ETA For the benefit of the Hebrew Challenged population: The Hebrew word for 'equal' (שוה) can also mean 'worth', so the quote can be read as the following oxymoron: "All people are worth the same (equal), but some are worth more than others".

I didn't come up with that I remember seeing it once in an article on translations, saying how even though nuances usually get lost in translation, sometimes new ones pop up, and brought this as an example. I can't seem to find it now.

It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
