Jesus H, I hope Leslie Chaim never sees this. Come to think of it, I hope no one I know sees this, least of all my customers...

Just as I have always thought.......How the hell am I suppose to concentrate on opening up when I am heads on on developing wireless projects? Concurrent processing?! But I have poor memory. Can't remember where I stop at in process A when doing pocess B.

Hmm... I'm

Since I must be OS-challenged, can anyone tell me what HP-UX is (Hewlett-Packard flavor of Unix?).
And why Michael Ernest is so angst-ridden about it?

HP-UX is indeed HP's Unix variant.
My preferred OS is Solaris (Sun's Unix), you see.

Fear not Michael you are not alone! Although the quiz was very much aimed at a MALE audience!

There were several questions completely nonsense to me. Which villian do you most likely to be? Oh my regards to the 5 big shots( to be a villian is already tough enough, let alone a famous villian ), but sorry I don't know any of them...Which episode of the Star War do you like best? Sorry but I never watched it...I did those questions by wild guesses.
I am pretty happy with my main OS windows 2000 SP3, how I wished I could be that...but it turned out...what's that? There is a SuSE 7.3 in my box, but what is Slackware?
