Google Makes Me Stupid

Does anyone else find that sometimes their first response to a problem is to search Google? I just had the good ol' 500 Internal Server Error in an Apache request and immediately I searched Google for assistance. Given that the web server in question was my own, the reasonable person would first check the server error.log, but I'm apparently not that guy. In my defence, it didn't take long for me to remember this, but still, Google was my initial reaction.

A quick check of said log file suggested an .htaccess issue, and now all is well. Perhaps we're (I'm?) becoming too dependant on our search engine overlords...
