It is a great feeling when something free saves the day!
I remember I was messing around with hard disks or something like that and screwed up and lost a partition or couldn't extend it or whatever. I remembered there was a free copy of some disk management tools that I had lying around around that came with a magazine. Yes, it was the previous version, and was time limited, but it worked. Fixed the problem!
As some of you may remember, last year in this post I mentioned that my current employer had lost the tender to operate the field I work in. Well here we are 7 months later and today is the day that could change everything again!
The new employment offers are being distributed today from 10am (qatar time).....
So, what does this mean.......potential outcomes:
1) No change.......continue to live and work here with the family, in the same villa, same schools, everything....
2) Slight change......continue to live and work here with the family, but may have to change villas etc. etc.
3) Big change............continue to work here and relocate the family to somewhere I can continue tax free.
4) Disaster change...........continue to work here but relocate the family to the UK, and I stay out the UK as per the tax rules.
5) Disaster 2 change............continue to work here, relocate family and me to the UK.
I have a feeling that option 3 is the way it is going to go....so currently exploring options for Cyprus. My head is mince looking at heaps of different property listings and trying to find somewhere to rent! I think the misses is also in the same option 3 frame of mind, which of course helps any decisions that will be made. Except the arguments will start on where and what villa to look at.
With the family in Forn Parts, I know how you feel. The work & life is not bad per se, it is just too different to give you a standard of life that you can cope with; let alone enjoy. That's why I'm now back in the UK working [and looking for a better opportunity] so the family can move. If another opportunity arose that kept me/us out of the UK but with decent enough schooling plus the other little bits we need, I'd go at a drop of hat.
Option 3 - your preferred one if got it right - sounds me bad... How can you work 2000 Km away from family? It means that after/before every shift you have a half day of flight... A full day you should spend with them... I hope you will have something better!!!

Sorry to hear the RAM came in bad ! Feel for you ! If you get results let us know ! I was wondering how long a typical setup took to boot with Win Updates, Office installed, VS 2015 w/ Sql Express or a Sql Express or some type of S.Express installation ..
It contained more than 20 minute coverage of a bus accident with 16 dead, after this 1 lethal car accident, Indian train crash, Chinese bus' close call with a mud slide, Chinese demolition record, more coverage of the bus accident and a little Trump news at the end... I know, that television news "likes" accident, but this time they didn't have to try hard, because life made sure, they have content to work with.
Yes, it was that unfortunate school trip. A weird coincidence, that approx. a month ago I saw a burnt out bus in real life, but there were no casualties at that accident. These good souls weren't so lucky
And he is connected to the sales of said goods how?
