Did anyone ever figure that out?

I wonder what’s behind it if nobody has… Unlimited GMail invitees! :smiley:

Found it. http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=160966&ixReplies=23

Pffsh, resume submission :stuck_out_tongue:

Thought it was a job advertisement for Google.

Yeah, it was. That’s no fun!

Hehe this is great. It’s not like google needs the PR but what an intuitive way to recruit some new people :slight_smile:

Straight from the horse’s mouth

If you do figure it out (the whole string of questions), then Google has a job for you.

I think you have to be in California (whever they’re hiring) though :stuck_out_tongue:

Surely if someone wants to go through the trouble of answering the questions they would be willing to move.

Hope they get a good salary though. Housing in the Silicon Valley is outrageous. An average 3 bedroom house is going for over half a million dollars.

People didn’t know what it was about before they answered it though, eh? Most people thought it was a way of unveiling GMail or special access or something, didn’t they?

They unvailed this bilboard idea a long time ago. For a company that deals with algorythms, I personally think it’s genious.

Yeah, it’s old, I was just wondering if anyone got past the linux.org login (and if they brute forced it :stuck_out_tongue: )

If I have some time I might give it a go later… .although I have serious lack of enthusiasum as I probably wont get to the next step, and probably wouldn’t be qualified in the end :slight_smile:

Actually the Linux.org login doesn’t work anymore… I guess someone changed the password :stuck_out_tongue: Can’t really try anymore.

I think if you get Google stock options you’re pretty well set. Unless of course it tanks (a bunch) after the IPO.

Yea, the answer is out…

Very clever of Google and if you’re interested in how a lot of people solved it in various languages, see above link.

Yeah, but finding the pattern is the hard part… getting the result is no issue :slight_smile:

Just Google it:
