comment In need of a more technical answer for an interview question about how the internet works from beginning to end
ANS - "Authoritative Name Server", the DNS server that has direct knowledge of and responsibility for the endpoints of a particular domain name. ALD was a typo. The post has been edited to be more clear on both counts.

comment Should I give the answer to a failed interview coding exercise?
@Graham - Been there too. Late last year I did some interviews for a short-term project (short-term for them; I'm still working on that same project, that's just how it goes). Our recruiting firm had "pre-screened" them and were confident my interviews would be a formality. When I asked something out of a Microsoft cert course, like "What are the A-B-C's of WPF", I got the right answer without hesitation. When I set up the shell of a FizzBuzz-like problem on the whiteboard including some simple "unit tests" I expected them to pass, and handed them a dry erase marker, I got blank stares.

comment Interfaces on an abstract class
More or less, yes. The big advantage is that you will reduce the number of references to BaseWorker that will have to change to be BetterBaseWorkers instead; most of your code won't reference the concrete class directly, instead using IFooWorker, so when you change what is assigned to those IFooWorker dependencies (properties of classes, parameters of constructors or methods) the code using the IFooWorker shouldn't see any difference in usage.
