I see Jeff mentioned the ultra cool site:msdn.microsoft.com trick for searching Google in a previous blog post.  In a case of shameless plugging… If you want the great searching from right inside Visual Studio .NET, take a look at the Google Add In I did for one of my Bugslayer columns.  With it you can search MSDN Online, Microsoft related sites (http://www.google.com/microsoft.html), Google Groups, Google Directory, and the whole web.
