    Well how about calculating how much tax you'd pay in Switzerland: http://www.vaudtax.vd.ch/telecharge.htm

    It will keep you occupied, improve your French and generally change your life (like inciting you to emigrate?).

    Oh, I dream about a meeting like that.

    My client has team meetings every week, but I no longer dial in to attend because their tele-conferencing phone is so bad I can't hear anything they say.

    Great Googly Moogly, I already did that once. I'm ready for another change though -- trying to persuade SWMBO to apply to move to Italy (hence those PM's before). Wouldn't be for at least 18 months, but it'd give me something to look forward to.

    How about a little light reading?

    At Secretary Rumsfeld's news conference on the budget Monday, one reporter (unidentified in the transcript) caught on to this and the following exchange ensued:

    QUESTION: "The budget shows that Army spending is going down by $300 million …"

    RUMSFELD: "Which, as you know, is not the case."

    QUESTION: "Well, that's what I see."

    RUMSFELD: "Yeah. I should have mentioned that. … The only way you can look at this budget is to look at the supplementals with it …"

    QUESTION: "Well, are you hiding—are you—are they, in fact, hiding non-combat costs in the supplemental—"

    RUMSFELD: "No, of course not. … No, that would be wrong [laughter] and we wouldn't do that. … This is no—it's all right out in the open."

    Dudes,
    there's like a pluthera of DBA jobs over here if'n ya got a security clearance. Hell, some of these contractors over here might slurge to buy one for you if you've got enough experience.
    Oracle it's not just a database it's a lifestyle!
