    [​IMG] My condolences :(

    A while ago I had a job in a company where they fired the network admin because some smart manager found out he was unproductive and just a cost factor (yes, the lazy ass didn't sell anything :evil: ). He stated that they haven't had a major system breakdown in two years, so the company had wasted money on him long enough ... :evil: ... I was there when he told that and I was ROTFLMAO ... :D That was when I decided to leave since I lost my trust in the management ... ;)

    [​IMG] Dude - That sucks!!! If I ever have a company large enough to need a helldesk person...I'll email you!

    I'm right there with you, unfortunately. I still haven't found the job I want! Are you going to take some time off, or are you going to start looking immediately? At they did give you a long notice.

    Hehe, I'm glad I finally lose my helldesk-kiddo-reputation.

    To be serious, it is pretty bad for some people here at work but for me it isn't. I'm only 20 and really have to do a study. I planned to stop but couldn't yet turn back to a life with less money. Now I have to, and when I will stop with twork in Oktober, they have to give me some more money too. For I work here for 2,5 year, I get 3 months of payment instead of 1 (3000 euros). With that I can easily pay school.... Yes that's right... I plan to go back to school!

    Marnix ... I hope the return to school is good for you. The Lord moves us sometimes when we won't move ourselves! ;)

    One thing to remember while you are pursing that degree ... "The truly educated never graduate!" ;) :lol:

    [​IMG] Aww poor thing. At least you don't sound sad about it. Actually I never though of you as the helldesk boy. Far from it. And not to the worse I might add :) And hey about money. bake your own bread and shop only once a week. Always have cheap beer at home :)

    well it's hard to go back to a life without money at all :) I consider a part time study of 2 or 3 days a week.... and 16 or 20 hours work per week :)

    Arabwel... no pictures of me with a headset on my head anymore ;)
