After the interview, I didn't want it.  I was still upset though, the
interviewer was rather condescending when I didn't give their approved

I was also desperate to get out of the gig I was already in,
unbelievable stupidity reigned there.  I think it was about two weeks
before I got the next interview & offer, which I took.  It tends to
work out in the end, but I am constantly impressed with the level of
imcompetance that seems to be out there in our (sysadmin) industry.
I've inherited a couple of shops that were absolute rats' nests, when
I was told going in what a GOD the person I was replacing was and how
tough it would be to fill his shoes.  In at least two of them, I found
evidence that the previous admin would break things in odd ways to force
his manual intervention.  Kinda like those movies with the sicko parents
that make their kids sick, just so they can take care of them.

Mind boggling.
