    It's happened. Just been layed off. I have 1 months notice with an additional month in the villa. There seem to be a few jobs here for me, but i fancy Brisbane.

    So, the BP cup is going to be mine, with the extra time i have now :)

    The first 10 times are the worst. Working in construction on the infrastructure jobs has always been like that.

    Well done, George.
    I, on the other hand, managed to get myself a CAD contracting job, as of next Tuesday - after being out of work 3 months. So I'll have LESS time online :(

    Gratz dude! Will be nice to get paid for your work instead of the freebies you have done for us!

    (Now how do I limit Click's online time? :D)


    George .. Gratz as well (I Think). Brisbane is becoming the TOG capital of Oz :)

    Typically, Computer Aided Design.
    Cadder = one who CADs. ie, a glorified draftsman.

    Cad nominatim, CAD per professio, cad per vis.
    Cad by name, CAD by trade, cad by nature.

    I used to be a CAD drafter, also did a bunch of manual drafting (with those horrid rotring ink pens), mostly civil stuff, wasn't for me though.

    WTF, Goerge's coming to Brisbane! Awwwwwww yeah!

    Let us know when you touch down and we'll organize a good old fashioned piss-up in your honor. Might be able to drag a few of the old CS:S and DOD:S boys out of the woodwork for the occasion too.

    p.s. There's no getting out of DiscO's lan now mate.

    I'm working here until the end of March. We'll then send all the furniture back. This will take 6-8 Weeks. We'll probably go on holiday then. So we should be in Brisbane about May, Juneish???
    This is if i don't get a job here in the mean time. I'm not really looking, but you never know.

    Also Drac. Sort out your PS3 and get burnout paradise.

    Remember the mantra, this time.
    "My PS3 is not furniture. My PS3 is not furniture. My PS3 is not furniture. My PS3..."
