comment How to handle people who lie on their resume
+answer: I was discussing this issue with the hire-ups, and they wanted me to go down a person's resume line-by-line to see if their skillset checked out. They even wanted me to intimidate people by asking them to cross off anything on their resume which "may have been inflated". (cont...)

It doesn't take weeks to probe someones skill. For example, if a candidate claims to be a unix DBA, I want to see if they demonstrate minimal familiarity (I might ask them to write a command which greps a set of files and redirects the output to another file). That's one idea I've bounced around.

comment Why isn't OCaml more popular?
OCaml is a relatively recent ML dialect, born about same time as Java. However, ML goes back to 1973 with the first major dialect, SML being developed in 1978. ML dialects found a niche in theorem proving and research, but have since been the industry standard in financial institutions.
