    Oh yea one funny thing this week. The guy I was interviewing recognised the questions I'd taken from Scott Hanselman's interview questions blog posts.

    Yes he stumbled on some of them (why can't people explain the difference between a thread and a process?) but the fact that he recognised the source was a big bonus point in his direction.
