    ...if Packard Bell is a part of Hewlett Packard or not?

    I've got an interview with HP tomorrow and I don't want to sound like an idiot when I declare I've been using PB PC's in one of our clients offices


    PS: Does anyone have tips on how to build a bridge with Lego...because that's a part of the interview

    Well they've got the same name don't they?
    And a couple of years ago HP bought Compaq so maybe they got PB as well.

    Now about that bridge in Lego...

    I don't think you want to make that mistake in your interview, they might be touchy about it...

    Packard Bell sometimes benefited from misplaced name recognition, with consumers (especially first-time computer buyers) and even some salespeople associating it with other similarly-named companies, such as Hewlett-Packard, Pacific Bell, and Packard.

    Give the person interviewing you the new Prehistoric Power Lego gift set, tell him or her that they can give it to one of their younger relatives.

    You've built a bridge with Lego
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Tell them you're boycotting lego as a protest.




    P.S. Seriously, building a bridge with lego is easy....

    It's a team effort. I'm not giving them any gifts until they give me a bloody job!

    I wonder if it would be better to go and have a spliff before going to this thing.

    One thing to avoid would be throwing away all the black bricks and saying, "I just don't like the blacks."

    A cantilever bridge is probably your best bet. Or make a giant arch...
