if that fails, if the question is related to software and/or business I will do site-specific searches at HN and lifehacker (eg site:ycombinator.com skinning a cat).
Sometimes I'll do this in reverse.
I have found that in most business settings I'm the only one who will search for things with this effort. Most people around me give up after a query or two, and then think I'm a genius when I find the information we wanted.
