That's ridiculous. You cannot determine a programmer's worth on one question. That's a management pipe dream.

uh...."Did you create PHP all by yourself"?

I'm really hoping this is a joke, to which there is a predetermined answer... because if it isn't, it should be deleted ASAP, if not before. There is no one question that determines the quality of a programmer.

question: "how long do you usually sleep?"

Warning: puzzle within.

I'm giving this one until 1150603200. Just in case there is some merit.

Figure it out. :)

Clue: 47-10-06 N 088-29-20 W.

(somewhat on-topic: If you can get this one, you've certainly got the problem solving skills needed.)
