Upvotes and Kudos: Links that Helped Me

Google is my first reference source. Whenever I get stuck at any point in my professional and academic life, I make some Google queries to find answers & solutions. And I find some answers most of the time.

As computers are becoming our secondary brains, we started to forget things quickly. This happened to me in the format of forgetting the actual information but remembering the keywords that lead me to that information instead. The keywords remain easily reachable between 6 months to 2 years of time span.

So I wanted to keep a reverse chronological list of useful links that helped me. I know there are tools like Pinboard to make this in a more organized way, but I will give it a try.
