How many time did you go to certain web sites for programmers looking for snippets of code or looking for answers ? Now that you found the answer, are you going to search for the same answer maybe tomorrow or next week ? Or maybe next month ? If the answer is "Yes", then you need to save that snippet somewhere so you can find it next time. Even if the originally the code was not entirely yours, after you made a few modifications and you run it, you understand it and you start to recognized your style. The next time you do not have to search the web, you go straight to your notes and get what you need. Basically you build your personal coding knowledge-base. The end result is that you can expect to write code faster, learn and improve your skills, grow your career and help your peers.
