I can’t hold it in any longer

Eric Raymond claims to have had a job offer from Microsoft. He so hasn’t. If you actually read the letter he got sent (which he didn’t), it’s an invitation to apply. I’ve gotten these too, and if you go through the process the next step is a phone interview, possibly followed by a face to face. It just means they noticed he’s an engineer, not that they actually think he’s worth hiring.

Eric, get a grip.
