feeling l + ucky

feeling lucky is almost always right, if howdoi didn't quite get you there

  1. edit ur search engine settings to include a shortcut to i'm feeling lucky query

  2. mine being l <space> "query"

  3. read the resulting page and weep

my own experiences in debugging (to tears) and watching other developers is the immediate googling of a well-ish worded question will produce the intended result

bonus tip: this is failsafe provided that you've clearly defined distinct steps you need to take & make it happen

double bonus: reading documentation

triple bonus: reading and then practicomg what u read in a sandbox

quadruple bonus: spaced repetition of 1-3

tl;dr guessing / poking around in the dark / deleting everything has never worked and if it has it's infinitely less preferable to the ^ method
