    Default Decision day tomorrow - to perm or not to perm

    Time to make my mind up.

    Market is looking pretty tumbleweed in my area, and I have a stoopid (>£80k) perm offer in front of me.

    I had the same decision a while back. For me it was 89k and when I jacked it last year it was 95k plus 15% bonus plus car allowance plus shares worth 20k a year. I got paid regular, had to put up with politics and got bored. I then jacked and went back contracting cause I didn't get on with my new boss. They have now left.

    I need ******* shooting!!!

    I don't believe you ever started SKA with any commercial return in mind AtW.

    If you wanted to make money you would have
    contacted me years ago.

    That's true, if I wanted to make money I'd do something else, much easier and make lots of millions by now having a nice detached house next to our own DimPrawn's mansion, BBQs like every time there is a nice weather in England, or in other words few times a year - that'd be grand innit?
