Searching MSDN

Searching for MSDN information can be infuriating. Fortunately, Google's search engine can be bent to one's will quite nicely. In the following set of examples, I continually add google search operators to refine my search and get me what I want quickly.

Something to note is the MSDN loband functionality; simply add (loband) to an MSDN url (right before the .aspx), or add it, comma-delimited, if the url already contains parentheses. Check out the ALTER TABLE page in low-bandwidth form. Note that MSDN allows you to persist this setting.
