Hey Jeff, how about some comment modding or maybe even paging?
It's getting a little crazy here, 90+ pages of comments for a single blog.
I do agree with this one, I think the big difference between picking up a book and just trolling the internet is that a good book will provide information you can use but may not have looked for.
For example, there is a guy here who became our new DBA. At first he made some improvements just by regularly reading a few blogs and picking up some tidbits, but it wasn't until he read a few good Oracle books cover to cover that he really took it to the next level.
Googling for code samples is typically reactionary. You're looking for a solution to your problem, and you'll only find results that fit into your search criteria. There may be some great solutions that you haven't even discovered because they don't fit what you're looking for in that narrow list.
