Never have I felt so close to another soul, and yet so helplessly alone, as when I google an error, and there’s one result – a thread by someone with the same problem and no answer, last posted to in 2003…” -xkcd
If you call yourself a coder, chances are you’ve felt the same way before many times in your life. You code along happily, running a few tests here and there when all of sudden, BAM, an EXC_BAD_ACCESS exception slaps you in the face. “But but… all I did was press the home button,” you say to yourself, “why did my app crash?!?”
You pop open a new tab in your browser and paste the error details into google, wishfully thinking that it’s a common issue with an easy fix. Alas, the results come back – all you see before you is a handful of threads from shady forums. Your palms begin to sweat.
You dig through the forums frantically, desperately hoping that somewhere out there in the sea of rubbish exists a golden pearl that will end your woes. After clawing through hundreds of useless comments, your heart begins to sink…
…but, it doesn’t have to be this way!
