Help menu -> report a bug... Do you think it needs to be easier?
There's the issue tracker( ) for submitting other bugs... and this gives a very loose guide to what issues bug people the most...

*Every* bug gets checked and seen!

The problem a lot of the time is working out which bug needs to be fixed first by the limited resources we have...

I don't know how friendly and open you are, anonymous person, but I've done pretty well in my last couple of interviews; Accepted immediately, first (face-to-face) interview.
Prior to those last two jobs, I hadn't had an interview for 8 years. It took me 12 interviews before I managed to get a job.

Basically, be more friendly, relaxed and relatable. Complain a bit about previous employers and how this new job will fix those problems (you may have to use your imagination), everyone has problems. A lot of the time, what puts perfect candidate A before candidate B is that "they could have a beer with them". Nobody wants to hire someone they're not gonna enjoy having around the office.

Since drinking heavily, I'm a lot more approachable, and apparently, a lot more employable.

Hope this *hic* helps.

This can't be far off, I read a paper a while ago (still trying to find it, this post is a bit redundant without it) which would "detect" the capital of a country from how often they were found in text together. (Probably pre-loaded with country names, this would just have the image as the needle)

I'm sure "Object 1387" and "Nyan cat" will soon be matched :)
