More about the Tony pizza interview...
When we interview a software guy, the team leader ask all the computer questions. If he/she pass that I some times invite them to have lunch in my pizza shop.
We had a nice trick... we had seven people at the table and only 5 slices of pizza. The computer geek took for him self 2 slices...

He took one look at the table. He thought "either these guys are assholes, cheap, or cheap assholes." Then he thought, well, fuck them. He took two pieces and made the best of a bad situation. Guess what? He wasn't waiting for your call.

Would have worked better if you were there with 20 programmers, Tony MBA, a rabbi, a catholic priest and only 3 slices of pizza and a billygoat.

He's no dummy!
Actually, you should have had 6 slices, and asked him if the situation could result in a deadlock or resource starvation.

Tony's pissed off because the computer geek was the only one at the table who knew the answer to "where can we get more pizza while sitting at a table in a pizza restaurant with the owner"?

It was for the first five minutes.
After that we served two big pizzas to the table.
