in reply to Information (or knowing where to find it) is key

serendipity is a powerful force. many's the time when I have gone looking for X in the docs, and started reading about Y, which looks fascinating. And then a half hour is gone, and I cannot recall why X was so damn important anyway, and write up some neat bit of code using Y to prove to myself I understood it. Eventually the X of today becomes the Y of tomorrow, and I start knowing where to look! Hope this helps.... :)
