Not much that isn't confidential to post about first day, except that at one point I was given a piece of paper and told "This is the root password for all the machines in our lab". I took one (albeit long) look at it and put it in my wallet just in case I forgot it. Then there was a reason for me to login as root, so I said "Right, I think I remember it", the reply being "I bet you can't" (it was a strong password). Logged in first time.
His question was "Do you have one of those photographic memories or something?" Teehee. I told him the truth - I'm just good with mnemonics.
Also, other scary thing - I think I know a few things about bash and other things that some guys there don't. Then again, I've been using linux/unix in some form since I was... um... 17. Definately 18 (mainly because I had to rely on people's shells for me to do anything useful when Iwas in Surrey - like IRC). So I learnt from then.
Crowd there are nice. I like the manager... I just can't figure out if he's the one who's married to Larry's ex, or if it's someone else.
