"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I left my previous work for various reason, and for contract work.
In case it's not like that in your country let it be know that, work contract in Australia is paid by the hour or day (in my case), you have no holiday or sick day but it pays a lot (a big lot) more.
And it has a fixed length which tends to extends (I imagine).
Well I started with a (risky) 3 month contract. Which turned into 6 months.. and then, just yesterday.. indefinite! yeah!
On the downside I can't entirely enjoy the crap ton of money because I am also suffering from a toxic mortgage in Darwin! But I can breath from the pressure it exerted!
