How can one answer questions asked in SO so fast? I myself try to check if there are any new questions that I can answer, and when I do so, there are already plenty of nice answers. I do get the chance to learn more and new things, but always have been curious how can one reply so fast (within 1-5 minutes). I really appreciate SO users who try to answer questions and help us, but what method do you use to do so?
- It should be a question you already know the answer to
- You should see it very soon after it's posted
- You shouldn't need to find any supporting pages (checking links takes time)
- You should be able to type pretty fast
FWIW, I don't use the RSS feeds or anything like that. I just check the newest questions page reasonably often.
