Noel is absolutely right.

We live in an era where Search Just Works.  I do dozens of Google
searches on most days.  To go from there to Help Desk is an incredibly
jarring experience.  I have to load new instructions into my head:
"stick to one word", "stem!", etc., that I haven't had to use on
search engines since the late 1990s.

Even though I like to program on flights and trains, where Eli's
concerns apply completely, I am also fully aware that I cannot get
various services while disconnected.  What is unconscionable is that
I can't do *better* while connected to the internet.
