Generally when your colleagues that have clocked a few years in the organization as an application PMs, you don’t expect newbie questions. Especially when the organization does not hire freshies.
So questions like “what is play-back-attack” and statements like “SSL is meant to encrypt data”, can leave me wondering where they cut their teeth on. You are suppose to building web-based application! Well not every one sits down and read Wikipedia, so I let it pass.
It got more puzzling when I was processing domain name registration, some one asked, “how it is possible to put the contents of the website inside the DNS server?”
Unless you are working in an ISP, domain name registration is an one off activity and not everyone get to register new domains. But when they don’t even know how a DNS works, it makes me wonder about IT background.
