Do that newsgroup thing

Newsgroups are such a wonderful resource.  People can post questions and get quality answers.  I use Outlook Express and lurk in the “microsoft.public.dotnet.*” groups.  What’s really cool is that there are people who are experts in their field(s) who provide top notch answers.  And you’ll probably see postings from people with [MVP] after their names…

What’s a Microsoft MVP?  The Microsoft MVP Program is a worldwide award and recognition program that strives to identify amazing individuals in technical communities around the globe who share a passion for technology and the spirit of community. Microsoft MVPs are recognized for both their demonstrated practical expertise and willingness to share their experience with peers in Microsoft technical communities.

Next time you have a .NET question, take a look at one of the newsgroups.  The question has probably already been asked and answered before.
