Win 8.1 is a solid OS. Metro is a steaming turd.
This kid couldn't answer my softball question. Couldn't even try, he had no clue. Tried an easier question, utter failure. I kept dumbing down my questions, and it wasn't until we got to data types that he could, eventually, come up with an answer. He couldn't even answer questions from his resume.
Thing was, as the interview went on I got to like this kid more and more. Really nice kid who seemed to have read a quick tutorial on C but had never so much as written a hello world.
My guess is he was a disadvantaged kid who went to some program, the program did a week of classroom, no lab, wrote his resume, loaned him a suit, got him an interview, drove him there, and presented them as an experienced C programmer to companies.
There have been questions of my ability to do what is on my resume that are legit.
My typical modus operandi is to scan the resume for things I've done myself, the more obscure the better. I then target that in the interview. It's amazing how often people list crap on their resume that was done somewhere in the building, but not by themselves.
For example, I spent about 4 years in the 80's working on the 1553 bus, and considered myself an expert on the protocol, the hardware, and the usage of the bus. A few years ago some idiot put 1553 on his resume but, in the interview, couldn't answer anything about it other than "the military uses it". No shit sherlock, that's my it's full name is MIL-SPEC-1553.
I'm about to spend the money for a registered letter to ask WTF, but I'll bet they don't respond to it.

I have to admit, I must be missing something. If a bunch of nutjobs in Tijuana decided to shoot rockets into my hometown of San Diego I would certainly hope the government would respond.
