in thread poll ideas quest

Many years ago I interviewed for a job as a Sun (SunOS-- before Solaris) administrator... I had already had several years of Sun-related hardware, OS and software engineering (drivers, utilities mostly) under my belt. However, the organization I had worked for OEM'd the equipment and custom racked everything... back to the story... so I interviewed pretty good and the guy took me for a tour of the computer room... so far so good. Finally after a bit we ended-up on the other side in that sort of casual "leaning-up against the equipment chit-chatting" sort of way and I remarked "So, where are the suns?" He got a sorta strange look on his face and said "You're leaning up against one!" Needless to say I didn't get the job :( even though I knew the innards inside and out-- was even the version I was used to at the time-- Sun-4M... but I'd never seen one with the skins on or even what sun's skins looked like.... (bummer)
