What's wrong with /etc/rc.d/cups restart?
Hehe, oh my! For some reason I get a picture in my head of Barack Obama and David Cameron dressed in black robes and doing a dance while chanting at a printer! Now, where's that psychiatrist?
Isn't that "restart" method just some Red Hat wrapper for /etc/rc.d/ scripts? I have always thought so since I haven't seen that program shipped with any distribution after ditching Red Hat Linux 6 ten years ago.
Though I admit I could be wrong. I haven't even tried using "restart" because running an init script works with every distro and is much more logical.
>> Restart [printer name] (from the quiz)
I think the quiz master might be thinking of the command you would give to lpc if you were using a Linux system which used bsd-lp/lpr (can't be many these days). That said, I don't think any lpc will accept "Restart" with a capital R as a valid command.

One of the questions asked how to install Win2k, and claimed the correct answer was WINNT or WIN32. This is not correct - the correct answer is WINNT or WINNT32. Makes you wonder about the merit of these quizzes.
That THING asked me questions about Windows, and accused me of watching Television and owning an iPhone.
Windows warps the brain, and if I ever watch Television, it's the Simpsons, or Futurama, not f***ing Alley McBeal. I got the free Win Mobile phone from Verizon, and put Android on it....
I've talked to int21h, I have the root password. How dare they speak to me in that manner.
Come back when you've fiddled with CP/M, or at least hex edited a piece of software as a prank.... then you can talk to me...
I'm a Unix guy, I have no idea about Windows therefore... I'm not a GEEK!!! Hurra!!!
Girls, look at this! I AM NOT A GEEK!!
Probably got something to do with us Unix folk spending less time behind the monitor fixing things. ;-)
That might explain why I am married and have some sort of a life. I'm a Unix guy as well
Yes, the quiz was terribly windows centric.
i got a 60% and it told me i probably use an iphone.
I got 70 and still says the same Maybe it's the only thing it says, I'm not interested or bored enough to do it again to see
hehe, I only scored a 60% too. It came close, tho. I don't own an iPhone but I do own an iPod Touch :p
only 45% right.
So did I and just for the heck of it I took the IT personality type quiz too...and according to that Im an uber geek. Never mind that I chose "None" on half the questions.
I just took that one too. Ended up with "Holy split personality! The Shadow, The Scary Sysadmin — make up your mind already!"
I use editors like that all the time and I put myself through the pain of going back every time it 'corrects' a word that should start with a lower case letter and uncorrecting it. I am not sympathetic for people who are so unobservant or lazy that they don't notice or don't bother to do the same.
The only point is to make money for InfoWorld. Look at the page layout: 1 question per page, filling less than 25% of the screen, the rest being advertising.
If there was some, it was stopped by AdBlock filter.
If it passed the filter, I didn't look at it.
If I've seen it, I don't remember what was advertised.
All what I'm left with is a lame test that won't improve my picture of InfoWorld (and neither it does the utter insult that I should be an iPhone owner)
11 out of 20, I suck. I knew a lot of the terms but I forgot quite a bit of it, especially the protocol stuff.
I only got 7 out of 20, but I'd have to agree with the others, it was way too Windows-esque of a quiz. A true geek know no bounds.
Not sure how, exactly, I guessed on 80%... and scored 80%.
Yikes. It didn't say I used an iPhone, so that was nice.
It called me a "geek hatchling."
As a Unix developer in my mid 20's, I scored a 6. I didn't even manage to get the Linux question right, since the joke option was just as likely to work as any of the others.
Apparently, my lack of knowledge about (old) Windows trivia means I'm a cheerleader with a Windows phone.
When a lot of the older network mentioned was still prevalent, I'd have been at most 10 years old. Hell, by the time things like FDDI or pre-AD Windows NT networks were on the way out, I was still in high school.
