I completely agree. But there is also the point that bosses are getting less patient. Too many expect solutions right now. "If you can't get it done right now, I'll find someone who can." attitude.

I luckily, haven't had to deal with this type of boss. I always go in search of an answer before posting a question, which is why I still haven't posted a question to PM ;-). I do PM searches regularly, and have used both google and groups.google.com to search newsgroups. It takes time, but you learn more (especially about tangent subjects) this way. A good boss knows this!

One of the best lessons my CS prof taught in his class was to learn how to find things. He didn't want us to fill our minds with C syntax. That's only good for C. He wanted us to learn how to learn, and how to find what you need. Those skills follow you from C to Java to Perl, and even to other areas of your life. Its a lesson I don't see taught very often....
