RTFM … or use google!

You know those times when you’d really like to help someone online (in a forum, an email, or whatever), but you know that the first thing they should do is just type the thing into Google and see what comes up? Well, now you can drop a really big hint that that is what they should be doing, by using the website ‘Let me Google that for You’ (http://lmgtfy.com).

This is great. You type in your query, and it produces an animation of someone entering the query into Google and hitting ‘search’. A pretty big hint I would say! So, lets say someone is asking how to upload a blog post, well, here is the answer – http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+upload+a+blog+post (it will give your a tinyurl too if you’d rather have that).

Very clever and a lot more polite than RTFM!
