F*cking programming

Wired has a great story about Ben over at the Codulate blog. He was experimenting with Google's code search tool recently when he stumbled upon one of those accidents that makes procrastinating worthwhile. As Ben points out, Google "searches inside tars, zips, and even dives into CVS and Subversion repositories" to index all of the code stored publicly on the web. A side-benefit is that you can peek inside the comments and see the musings of overworked, under-appreciated and just plain bored programmers everywhere.

Ben typed in a bit of profanity and got some great results.
