Only one succeeded.
I have to admit that rot13 is fairly obvious for an old usenet fart like
me but may well be less obvious to the young 'uns of today who've never
heard of anything except alt.binaries.cd.image, and 'use the source' may
be more obvious when you've done some hand-coding of HTML back in the days
when most HTML was handcoded. So it may partially be an age thing. Still,
I just interviewed one person who just graduated from a graduate
school with a masters in computer forensics. Half the course was in
legal stuff. Everything else was just a cursory "here's how it's done".
No hands on as far as I can tell. *sigh* And I had such high hopes.
That's what technicians are for. Masters are for impressing a jury.
