you never stop learning

So I have been using Linux systems for over 6 years. I have had at least one Linux box of my own for over 5 years and I have been a full-time professional Linux server administrator for over 3 years. I just learned today how to increase the max open files limit.

echo 32768 > /proc/sys/fs/file-max

How did I never figure that out on my own? And why is it whenever I have searched for the answer I have always found stupid crap about ulimit that never really solved the problem? How was this so easy yet so hard to come by in all my 6 years of dealing with Linux?
