Stupid Questions and Research

Moshe recently asked me some dev question on the IM and I didn't solutions from the top of my hat so I made a small research and found answer which fitted his needs perfectly.
So when he thanked me I answered that I love doing research which confused him because he thought I hated it based on the post I wrote some time ago.

So I figured that I had to clarify this.

I hate when people ask stupid questions which they can simply think of or just google it. Obvious stuff. Something that takes less time googling than asking me and me googling it and then answering it.

At the same time questions which imply learning of something new or finding solution for a reasonable problem are something I love to do. This is usually programming stuff, something you may apply in the future again. These kinds of researches make me feel

Things I need

There's a list of things I need but never get a chance to get for various reasons. Here are some of these things:

- Apple Macbook Pro (13" or 15" - undecided) or MacBook Air to make my backback lighter
- USB 3G modem + monthly plan
- 24" screen (currently have 19")
- Bunch of books
- Carrrr

This is not a full list obviously but I believe some of these things could've made my life much easier and more productive (such as 3G modem or car)

It just hit me!

I was listening to the song which I heard on the radio for the first time when I was in yeshiva in 2004 and it just hit me how far away that was! When you grow time doesn't seem to be so far compared to your childhood (90-es for me) but sometimes you realize that 5 years could also be such a long amount of time...

PS. Most of you probably don't know that my memories are mostly associative and I usually use music to remember moments from past. I can still clearly see moments from around 95-96 when I listen to certain band. You get the idea...

Girl buried alive for talking to boys

The girl, who has been identified only by the initials MM, was found in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-metre hole dug under a chicken pen outside her home in Kahta, in the south-eastern province of Adiyaman.
