In Effective Debugging I write that if a web search doesn't return you any useful results, then maybe you're barking at the wrong tree. Here's an example.
Christos Kontas reported through a tweet that a page on drawing tools in this blog was broken. The file was indeed cut in the middle of a paragraph. I guess that the file got broken some time ago when I interrupted the file regeneration process. I created the file anew on my local host, but noticed that the file failed to update on the web server. This is how I debugged the problem. I've put in bold text in brackets references to the corresponding Effective Debugging chapters.
