The developing consensus among the Yute Geeks here where I am is that the survey favors those of a... certain age. The guys who not only know what slide rule is and have seen them but once upon a time actually had to use them. Their hackles are up and they are feverishly devising more contemporary questions.

I did find myself amused by:

Which of the following is not a real programming language?

Having used all 6 for one thing or another in the now distant past, my personal inclination was to choose COBOL.

Loner, my personal inclination was PASCAL, but I went with the consensus.

Knuck, let us know what they come up with. I suspect it will make me feel my age.

I gave the same answer re: COBOL for the same reason. And to the languages I've been exposed to - to accomplish at least SOMETHING - I fear I must add RPG (from the days when it didn't mean "Rocket Propelled Grenade") and Ada

So far they are coming rather lame. They want credit for knowing something of .NET, ActiveX, and the like.

There's a more clever contingent, however, that is grumbling about SIP and A/V ITU stuff - G-dots and H-dots. They also want to blather about the finer points of UDP vs. TCP and which ports are more difficult to secure. This gang is more difficult to humiliate and send packing, the yuteful bastids.
