    Those were my thoughts exactly when I reflected on how Hamlin Plumber's comes out and it's Mr. Hamlin who's doin' the work.

    Insane..
    Do not go that side, Its Highly debatable topic which involvs US Govt and business gaints minds. We are over with that kinda discussions. If you have time search these forums.

    We get nothing by yelling! rather I would advise you to beat the competition and get the best out there for you (Might take few sleepless nights but you reach your destiny)

    Not by a long shot. I do not mind moderators preaching but I do not like if they stifle free discussion in an open forum.

    I have no problem with any of these visas as long as the companies that use them play fair. There is some discussion going on in a senate sub-committee right now.. on how these companies misuse L1's to displace Americans as well as funnel the remaning work to oursourcing...

    Hey, I'm not preaching, moderator is not a great designation here at dbasupport.com (I never said I deserve), If you know how to transfer it from me, I would be glad to give it up for you.

    FYI, I do not work for big gaints, neither I own a company. Just a DBA struggling to survive in this down economy purely on my hard work/sleepless nights, with NO help/support from anybody, not even friends. Hope you got it. Tell me now, Am I preaching or telling naked facts ??

    Thanks for offer I appreciate it. I have passed that stage of seeking help/accepting help, got used to moving on my own

    P.S: When we say some fact people think they are the only ones going thru down economy or economic fluctuations but, fact is job maarket is National & Global.

    Everydamn thing is interrelated. If you fart in Singapore(read=all that funny virus sars, now somethin else), tremors are felt on the otherside. Too much money has been squandered in the last couple of years.

    It's like sailing a huge ship which is loaded. so if you roll too much on your port, it's gonna take a long while to come to your mean(midships), forget about going to the Starboard(read=again a booming economy)in the coming times.

    It'll be there, but we'll have to bite our finger nails.

    This thread seems to have turned stream-of-consciousness all of a sudden. It reads just like the kind of functional requirements document i have to build systems off of.
