While I agree with some of the posters above that this interview process is very specific a certain type of programmer and a certain type of business... I'd love to encounter it. Sadly, my resume rarely makes it past HR, let alone to an actual skills assessment of any sort. Almost every time I've ever coded on a whiteboard or multiplayer notepad I've gotten an offer. For some of us, it's getting that far that's the problem.

I'm sorry to see such a well regarded blogger exhibiting such strong cognitive dissonance. If the environment is bad for developers now then it is bad for users later. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

This router has issues with wifi availability in many situations. High traffic, or high connection counts, or heavy bandwidth usage all can cause the router to start showing latency and packetloss on wifi<->internet traffic. At the same time wifi<->router and router<->internet traffic will have no problems, so this is obviously something internal to the networking hardware. I greatly regret buying this router. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Buffalo_WZR-HP-G300NH#Fix_for_WiFi_Dropouts helps a little
