in thread (OT) Number 1 mistake to not avoid during an interview

I once went for an interview were the interviewer was the one who wasn't comfortable to speak (he was a techie as well, and assigned to do the interview because he happened to visit a customer in Amsterdam, and that was cheaper than to fly me to London). The whole interview lasted 10 minutes, and that included ordering coffee. I remember the one technical question: Suppose someone comes to you saying they can't telnet to a certain box, what do you do?. To which I answered I'd go over and read the error message.

I got the job.
