worst thing in the world. i'm starting a list of people who link it. those people are never to be given any information
cat_race hates it
can't think why
jordan asked about godwin's law. clearly that's a trigger for a conversation about it. he doesn't just want a definition. you people.
you click a link and it brings up a google page that automatically googles something that someone asked a question about. i think it might be the absolute most snobbish, snide thing in the world. i think i might have linked it in the past. i don't know. but now i think about it, it really is the territory of absolute fuckerslike fidel up there
you ruined my joke. i knew what it was :(
but i am yet to see any proof
when someone asks a question on a forum they could have easily googled an answer for in seconds
.. every day, you wouldn't get "sassed" by someone linking to lmgtfy
Also, who uses the word sassed? Is it a real word?
no, i don't think so.
just the scum bags that link it to anyone.
and fully prepared when I feel the need to sass people on the internet
you're better than that
and it's not a chink. all it does is make me think you're a snide fucker. i know you are better than that theo
Better than being a troll/pretend moron
i don't think i agree
it's a pretty funny thread, that's all.
i like conversations
first post: lmgtfy
aka it's finished
This lmgtfy is awesome
is just a lmgtfy link
it'll be another way to weed out cunts from my life
....the time YOU dedicate to trolling on here
fitzcarraldo just seems obsessed with me. seems weird. like this thread. you've all made it about me. rather than about what i started the thread about. i don't get it
as i said the other day i just find your whole "fake naivety/posting endlessly inane questions" schtick insufferably boring
it's funny to see various other folk calling you out on it in this thread though
i didn't say that was a bad thing. it's nice you have a little support group though
the last refuge of a tosser
I think I love you
simply an opinion on people
or is this thing eating you up inside?
what are you so upset about today?
Didn't know about lmgtfy.com or googlefight.com till now.
My life is so much the better for this knowledge.
Cheer up cat_race, I've got a fucking awful Snickers waiting for you.
I'm delighted if you're not.
I can never tell whether people are really having a go at each other on here or not. Don't have enough knowledge/interest of/in the cliques of DiS.
but there's a group of about 5 or 6 people who like to talk about me so, unfortunately, the thread is just about me now rather than still being about lmgtfy.
but i'm not interesting enough myself to have worthwhile people spend time talking about me. that's ok though. people should play at their own level
Not a criticism, I don't care what you guys get up to, just a suggestion.
if people are talking about me, that's cool. once i'm a-list like theo and icouldwinarabbit then i'll have a better breed of fan

Feeling a bit old school Bamnan about DiS, bro?
these guys just want to talk about me all the time. and that last bit? no idea what that means.
how do you feel about the rather more subtle zero click info?
but it's just not as good
(stuff where you wanna trawl fairly deeply into the web for something fairly specific, our if you're after a page with a phrase etc) but i like it for casual stuff, and I like the way it presents it's results. Also it lets you set up custom searches and choose a more basic interface, which is useful on a mobile (where Google tries too hard to pre-empt and redirect you to mobile versions of it's own sites and seems to do the same when linking you to result sites - i mostly want desktop versions of sites, even though i'm in my mobile).
And... i'm really getting into the habit of using !bangs rather than having a bunch of different search engines installed into the search box in Firefox. Throw in !auk and bosh, you're straight into amazon uk. Google is only a !g away. !gi or !gt for a direct google images or translate search. Add !gm or !osm for maps...
There's loads: https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html And most are guessable - i took a punt on !elreg and it worked as expected. Lovely stuff. Google fancies itself as page 1 of the internet. I reckon DuckDuckGo feels like the bookcase.
It's calculator is better on the desktop, too (lets you click on the answer and then work with that number).
You can easily customise the look, for more covert work usage.
Plus, all the blurb about privacy. True or not, it's just nice to not blindly be 100% reliable on the G (in terms of simple competition and R&D terms, as much as any great paranoia thing).
tl;dr It's not perfect, but it does some cool stuff.
