Efunda, I have an idea for you guys.
rolschwarz, you live in Australia, right ?
Here in America it only takes a suspicion or a faintest touch of some CEO's imagination that things can be done by computer only, for him to let ALL engineers go. Fact and reality have no bearing on anything. In the good old USA, CEOs are busy capturing ever larger profits, for themselves. Any excuse will do. Then its good bye and the golden parachutes and the next company to be destroyed is already all planned in.
