Why are manhole covers round?

5 Answers

The answer they are undoubtedly looking for is because manholes are also round thus need round covers. It doesn't ask why they were designed to be round from an inventive stand point and makes no mention of why the holes themselves are round, just the covers. Its a test of your ability to use logic and reason and make sure that if they hired you that you would have a firm understanding of the "big picture". Thats my take on this anyway... Less

My guess is if you need to put it back or take it off you can roll it around rather than carry it or drag it Less

They aren't. In my house, there are 3, and they are all square or rectangular. I have been in a mine where the (round) manholes weren't covered with anything at all which was rather unsafe, and another where they were covered with a lattice to prevent things or people from falling into them. I haven't seen any round manhole cover yet. But I'm not a native English speaker and may not be getting the pun, someone please enlighten me what this stupid question means. Less

The interviewer asked me about my faith and religion. Upon telling him I did not want to discuss it the person quickly dismissed me in the conversation. It is obvious he is choosing just certain religions.

There are two directly-connected switches. Assume that they communicate fine on the physical layer. Why can't two hosts with assigned addresses and communicate with each other? Also assume that network addresses can be used. How would you remedy this by swapping out only ONE of the devices on the network?

4 Answers

The hosts are on two different subnets. Replace one of the switches with a properly-configured router. Less

the host which assign and host these subnet is not belong to same subnet Less

The subnet being used only provides 2 useable address, .5 and .6 the .50 address is out of the range. If there are only switches and no router, swap out one switch with a router and re-configure the network addresses. Less

User has lost root password, how do you reset?

4 Answers

Boot in single mode by typing E on the selected the kernel in grub then add S or single or 1 to the end of line eg. then B to boot the selected kernel. once in the single-user mode disable SElinux with below command eg: setenforce 0 now using passwd command "With SElinux Off as Selinux will not let you change it" eg: [root@centos images]# passwd Changing password for user root. New password: your-password BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word BAD PASSWORD: is too simple Retype new password: your-password passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully. Less

Actually the easiest way to do this is to single the box in run-level 1 then use the standard passwd tools to update the hash. That's far simpler than using a live cd and editing the shadow file. This a network based kvm. is an operation that can be done at the DC or over ipmi or Less

init 1, change root password... I missed this one.
