Stuart Laughlin writes that he was blocked from Google by the corporate proxy server. Like many developers, I think we only need a few things to conquer the world (or at least conquer that pesky bug that’s been nagging at us for the last two hours). I can sum up the list like this:

  • Computer
  • Internet connection
  • Caffeine (by any means)
  • Access to Google

Nice to have, but optional, are things like a desk, a chair, lighting, and solid food.

I list Google right up there because it is indispensible when researching computer-related issues. Chances are, if you’re having a problem, somebody else has had the same problem. Learning the art of advanced Google search techniques is invaluable to any serious programmer. I would be breathing down the admin’s neck if I couldn’t get to the Google page.

    Thanks for backing me up on this issue; now let’s go conquer the world! 🙂
