... and that's exactly the point. If I would have had some prior knowlegde (or even foresight), I would have quit my job after explaining this Internet and HTML thingy to the senior consultants and management who did not udnerstand a wahoota of it somewhere in 1996, started a company, sold out in 1999, and now live off some comfortable piggy bank somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle Wink | ;-) Thus, I might start again as a software developer if I could go back to when I started working in 1992, but I sure would not be working as a software developer in 2008 Wink | ;)
