Stupid Queries Simple Answer


If you are a geek, it is normal that people ask you questions in which you are a Master and you feel happy to give them the required answers and help them out. But sometimes these people drag you to such an extent that you get frustrated by such stupid queries and feel like banging your head onto the computer screen or the keyboard. These queries are so simple that a simple googling will fetch you results.
Luckily there is a website for your rescue. It builds a URL which you can share it with the person who asked you the stupid query so that he can find the answers by himself. The website is LetMeGoogleThatForYou.com. Enter a search term relevant to the asked query, click the Google Search button, and a link appears that you can copy, paste and share it to your friend. When they click that link, an animation displays the complicated process of searching Google for information, and then directs the user to the actual search results page from Google.
Example: For search query “What is HTML” http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+is+html
To make it even simpler the Pidgin instant messenger has got a plugin called STFW. What it does is, it automatically converts the reply to the URL as mentioned above and sends it to the user who asked you the query. Only thing is that you have to prefix the reply with /stfw and put the query and just hit the Enter key.
By God,
Internet has made lots of things so easy;
That man has become more lazy!
