    I've read that before . It wouldn't suprise me if its true (although truth is often stranger than fiction).

    just think of it this way, their such a bunch of dumbshoes that they can't learn C/C++ so they make fun of us since the can't understand it and they know its better.

    and their both Hoaxes trust me.

    The C++ interview was almost definetely written by an experienced C++ programmer. I found it enjoyable, if a bit long.

    I really don't think that's it. I think they see how ludicrous programming can be.

    Just think, in a matter of years, CIS students will sit around shaking their heads when instructors talk of the "old days" when people sat at keyboards typing away cryptic instructions all day.

    It will be how we look at the punch card days. The human/machine interface is still very primitive and I think it will change in ways we do not forsee.
