Dear Lifehacker, I have applied for a position internally with the company I already work for. The application process requests you to supply an "asking salary". My application was successful after several rounds of interviews but I was not given any information around salary, so I assumed my asking salary had been accepted. I have since discovered that the company has gone with a much lower salary than expected (25 per cent difference).

Earlier this year a lone Ghost Ship haunted Sydney harbour. An aquatic wraith of doom. A visual feast sent to turn our blood as ice-cold as the murky waters it sailed upon.

Well, not really. It was an illusion. But one so cool that we created a video with our friends over at Gizmodo to explore the tech behind the magic.

The Cheese And Burger Society is a Wisconsin-based gourmet collective dedicated to US-style cheese burgers. Over the years, the society has hand-crafted 40 burgers that it considers the tastiest ever created: from the "Casanova" (Swiss cheese, beef patty, ham, sautéed mushrooms, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise on a potato roll) to the "Waldorf" (blue cheese, beef patty, toasted walnuts, dried tart cherries, curly endive, sliced red onions and mustard on a rustic Italian roll.)

Be warned -- if you currently have an empty stomach, the accompanying photos might make you homicidally "hangry".

The idea of a multi-user operating system is almost a tautology today but back in the 1980s it wasn't all that common - at least when it came to personal computing. PC-MOS was a multi-user operating system that, like DR-DOS and others, competed with Microsoft's MS-DOS before eventually disappearing at the Redmond juggernaut crushed almost all its competition. Now, Roeland Jansen, Gary Robertson and Rod Roark have put the operating system onto GitHub as an open source project so we can all mess with its source code.

Almost every job interview ends with a variation of the same question: "Do you have any questions for us?" It goes without saying that you don't want to draw a blank here. However, you also don't want to ask the wrong question and invalidate the rest of the interview. This hack from the archives explains the best way to respond.

Threat actors, Group 74, have targeted people attending the Cyber Conflict US Conference being held in Washington next month. They have distributed a flyer that delivers a VBA payload. Cleverly, the bad guys copied the text from the real flyer from the conference website and used that to craft their attack.

I've been using the new Nokia 3310 3G as my primary phone for a full work week, and it's been like living in a localised time distortion field where I was in 2000 and everybody else was 17 years ahead. As someone with an appreciation for retro technology I thought this might be an interesting — or even refreshing — experience, but it was borderline intolerable.
