11/5    Is there somethink like WHOIS for phone numbers? I want to
        find out if a particular phone number is mobile or landline.
        Is there a way to determine what phone company has it?
        \_ http://www.anywho.com/rl.html
           You can at least tell if the number is a listed landline.
        \_ http://thedirectory.org/pref
           This is to tell whether the 3-digit prefix is a mobile or landline.
           If it's the latter, provides approx. location. For the former,
           it doesn't provide a specific phone company though.

4/23    Suppose you used to work at Awesome Corp that got acquired by
        Monsanto Corp. You're embarrassed about it and people now hate
        you by association. Should you put Monsanto on your resume? Or
        is it better to leave it out completely?

3/1     Can someone explain to me why Groupon is a tech company?
        \_ It's similar to how Amazon and eBay are tech companies.
           \_ Amazon and eBay are *NOW* tech companies, they didn't
              start that way. Groupon started off as a marketing
              company, and their "technology" isn't getting any better
              than a bigger and bigger opt-in email spam system.

4/02    We use Perforce at work for revision control. It seems to work okay.
        Lately, a lot of the newer developers are saying that Perforce
        sucks and we should switch to Mercurial or Git. I have done some
        searching on the Internet and some others have this opinion. Added
        advantage is that Mercurial and Git are free. However, there would
        be some work to switch for the sysadmins and the developers.

4/26    I see that soda has an ipv6 address but ipv6 traffic from this box
        doesn't actually work (ping6 <DEAD>ipv6.google.com<DEAD>, ping6 http://www.v6.facebook.com
        Is this expected to work?
        \_ Soda doesn't have a real IPv6 address.  The IPv6 addresses you see
           in ifconfig are just link-local addresses; any IPv6-capable machine
           will autogenerate these, whether or not it's connected to an IPv6

        code in Fremont, and AT&T customer service says I cannot transfer my
        DSL service because DSL is not available at my new home.  Is that BS?
        Are they just trying to push me to subscribe to their more expensive
