Since the economy has crippled, I am certain Tech people have been
feeling the crunch since most of us are considered costs rather than
an assets. For those who have been looking for positions, I am curious
what are some tough technical questions you were stumped at and for
what position.

For instance, I had a client as me over the telephone:
What is ELF and how does it differ from other formats?  -- Unix related position
What is kept in a journal of a journalized file system? -- Unix related position

You could stretch a point a bit, and say that this could be applicable to other OSes, as Windows and Mac both have journalled file systems.

What is a poll and select? -- UNIX related position

I consider these fairly tough questions -- what do you think?

I'd call them tough. I'm couldn't answer them ...
