A "just Google for it" answer is, of course, dismissive and useless, because the Gentle Reader From the Future is left right where he started ... as was the original responder in the past.
I'm hoping that this thread will be expanded and improved-upon because we are all so very familiar with the problem, and so dependent on the information-resource. My intent here was to expand upon the “how to ask a question” threads, by framing “a thread” as being something that has long-lasting future value. My premise is that “good threads are written and developed with that in mind.”
I look forward to the contributions and comments of fellow Monks. Take this and run with it.
