Toughest interview ever; Google intervention needed

Recently had the toughest interview of my life. Two hours, two questions and dredging up Big O notation, binary trees and stuff like that. All without Google. Sad that it took an interview to help me realize how much Google I use through the course of a day. Have I really become so dependent on a search engine that I no longer bother to retain information? Is my brain stuffed full of nothing but keywords for search results?

Time to break the habit and start practicing on some of the more recent knowledge I have acquired. I figure jumping into a class or maybe an open source project would be a good way to wrap this kind of effort into a deadline driven activity.
