Crash Landing On Planet Inadvertently Solve Problems

I really like planets as they seem like the most logical arrangement of aggregation and since they draw from related sources never seem to suffer from a lack of new and interesting things to read. That said, planets can also be boring as hell if you're not intimate with the subject matter. I finally discovered Planet MySQL this afternoon and I've been reading it non-stop whenever time permits. One thing that distinguishes PM from other developer planets is the consideration of problems that people actually have and the willingness to dig a little deeper to not only find the source of the problem and make a commit but to explain it to a user/less experienced developer audience in terms that see daylight outside of mailing lists. It's also nice to see that I'm not the only one who has temper tantrums when software misbehaves in a way that makes almost no logical sense. A couple pages into it I find a solution to a problem that has plagued me in the past and I find myself having one of those oh-so-totally Web2.0 moments where I wonder if reading too many weblogs is still an efficient way to waste time especially since my patience for Flash game du jour falls into the negative numbers.
