Actually pasties are a weakness (though not one thats going to get in the way of a job -unless they were pasties laced with crack…). Thanks for all your messages of support. My interview is at 11:30 and apparently involves some kind of linux practical test but I’m not sure what exactly it will involve.
The job itself is in an oceanographic lab doing computery stuff (also of a disturbingly non-specific nature), I’m hoping its something relatively easy like database managment as opposed to some kind of crazy high level pattern-recognition-tracing-the-ocean-floor type of job. The vacancy was adevrtised as "scientific computer support" which could mean anything really but it kinda sounds fun (they have a supercomputer on site I think)
