    Sad to hear you guys cant get more work locally. It was a constant push uphill trying to get Medicare/IBM to listen to reason where 'open-sauce' was concerned. Ancient corporate tactics just have no room to move these days in the ultra-streamline IT world. They certainly stood up and listened when they finally audited some employee's desktops and found all manner of 'tools' floating around getting shit done. Needless to say I jumped ship 6 months or so before they were notified of their loss of contract.

    I'll be in Auchenflower tonight selling kitchens (pays better than free IT service!). If I see a bunch of pasty white feller's stumbling around the gab's or whatever on my way back I'll be sure to join you'se for a round or 3! My trusty ol N900's still crankin and just more pleasant to use overall over this SIII.

    Tangent; The Munich Steakhouse still in Brissy? I think it used to be on Charlotte St or something.
