Quoting Brad Knowles <brad at shub-internet.org>:

> I'm already in the Rackspace system (talk to Erin) and they seem to be

> Most recently, they did a phone interview and had me pull up a web page
> containing basic commands and asked what each of them would do,
> sprinkled with questions like "tell me what happens when a user types
> an URL into their browser and then hits return."
> If I had just one or two years experience using Unix or Unix-like OSes,
> these might be difficult questions to answer. With eighteen years

> brains of the other people explode, and with all the different
> platforms I've worked on I may not remember all the platform-specific
> things they might be looking for. I may also disagree with the premise
> for the question, so I have to try to figure out what the answer is
> supposed to be for the inappropriately worded question.
