I feel like Stackoverflow is a fastfood for programmers mind. It gives you a solution you starve for. It may be not the best quality, but it works for now. It does not satisfy you in a long run, and may be too shallow for advancing. But it works and gives you more to think about.

I would never find a quick solution to parse a string with regex. I never thought it works this way. But hey, I'm happy.

    When you get more deeply involved in your tech, SO will sate you more. No joke, I have learned so much from SO. At worst I at least learn what something means even if I don't find the answer.

    Are you sure, you were not taking about Yahoo answers or Quora?

    @projektaquarius, by all means I love SO, and not trying to say anything bad about it. Im am only comparing it to a fastfood as a metaphor to a quick solution which fastfood provides to our hunger.

    @610r no I got it. It's just that the comparison falls apart (slightly) when you get deep into something. Like I work in C# and I had a very specific question. It had already been asked. As a result of the answer and the provided links I learned a lot about the CLR, JIT, and .Net framworks.

    @projektaquarius, I understand your point. Your example is exactly what I meant by the last sentence of the first paragraph.

    Think about that most of our live now is get shit done and move on. SO reflects our live.

    I don't think it's fast food. It forces you to understand the code, since applying code you don't understand is... Well... However it does provide with info of WHAT you need to understand.
