Re: [PLUG] OT (but not really): Tough Interview questions

Hey JP, obviously you're not old enough...
  my response was immediate: 
         Abbey Road by the Beatles
   or  Days of Future Passed by the Moody Blues
   or  Benefit by Jethro Tull
   or  Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor Op. 67
          performed by the Tonhalle Orchestra, David Zinman conducting
   or ... oh, nevermind - I'm losing count.  _NO ISLANDS FOR ME_ without 
my mp3 collection!

Maybe that's why I like the command line: it's so... old.
