How do I know what to do? Where do you find this information? Why do I act like a know it all?
These are questions I sometimes get asked at work that I don't have a definite answer to. (Except the last one though. I'm the humblest person. Ever.) So I took the time to think about it so I could have a better answer the next time I'm asked. And like the lazy dude that I am, lead them to this blog post for answers they be a-searchin' fer, no matter if you're a programmer or not. So I generalized it all for y'all. I'm probably just being Captain Obvious here but for the sake of having it laid out in a blog post, here it is.
A mind, once expanded by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
