Digital Delphi

The best resource on the net is also the least known. Everyone knows Google for its search engine, but not many people know and/or understand what Google Groups is all about.

For over twenty years, Usenet has existed as a place to exchange information and technical support for geeks. Literally thousands of publically-accesible newsgroups, with categories ranging from Brad Pitt's butt to the finer points of Unix programming to garden pests, exist on news servers around the world.

Google groups archived the last couple decades into a searchable database. If you ever have a problem with a computer, I guarantee someone has posted the problem, and usually the solution, on Usenet. Over the years Usenet has grown to include thousands of categories for practically everything under the sun, so the internet's collective knowledge is at your disposal. Plus Brad Pitt's butt.
