We might as well sing our way through this:

" I feel the sky tumbling down..." - hmm, calculating today how much our costs are going up (import from Euro area into £stg plus all suppliers implementing yet more price increases ) and the penny finally dropping with the head honcho (not me) Evil or Very Mad ..... yeah, feeling something like that today alright ...

Good ol' Carole King though, must admit, a couple of her songs have always been around for life's important moments Smile

Seriously difficult times. Someone in my family who works in London was saying yesterday that everything had gone very quiet about three weeks ago. They don't have to import though.

What's that stuff, Evercloserunion? Surely you'll need a turkey or two to go with that ton of Paxo??

We deal mainly with banks and hedge funds - hah! great. All the City institutions now have a policy of shedding min. 10% of staff plus complete stop on all absolutely non-essential costs in at least the first quarter. That was all before the latest Madoff and other hedge fund stuff. Yes, as no doubt many of you have found, it's the suddeness of all this that has been amazing... I choose a light word deliberately.

The suddeness has to do with funds maturing and margin calls or something, no ?

Huge instability everywhere. Most of my friend's parents are in accountancy, the legal profession, or the financial sectors and all of them are bracing for large lay offs in the new year. Lucky for most of us it is our parents who are doing the laying off rather than them losing jobs but it isn't particularly nice for anyone. My parents constantly worry about the futures of the people who are dependent on them as employees, it is a very personalised thing.

Contrary to popular myth, there are not that many fat cats in Ireland so far removed from reality that they just sign a page and lay people off. It is perhaps true of the multinationals but not alot else.

(Sorry, not up to this font size tonight!)

We are a humble supplier of services to the great and the good. We have a very wide range of abilities, an excellent team, unrivalled experience and a blue chip client list.

Actually, there is still definitely quite a bit of work out there, it's just that a) companies are afraid to commit to the spend, b) it's high-end stuff that is still getting passed through and c) ...would rather not say silent Smile

( sorry, have amended my original draft of this, might post the rest a diff. time)

Its either that or evercloserunion's stuff is getting to us.

I'm going to have to call it a night: getting completely cross-eyed.

I'm sure it will be fine in the morning.

I hope so. I couldn't post somewhere that looked like this. You need to be able to see what's happening...

No cactus - this is a bit shite now. There's some upgrade going on though - must be a big one because they're tweaking the code or databse or seem to be anyway.

I went to the help site last night but there was no major announcement. I'll check later again.

I've just see the logo "Editboard.com" come up there - what's the story with that ??? That's a new development in the maelstrom - maybe they're being taken over by a different organisation.

No major announcements from them anyhow. I can switch the forum off for half a day - put it "On hoidays - Back Later" sign on the door....

I think leave it up but is it possible to put something up saying
Apologies for instability - we are investigating?

Can we advise members how to contact each other if the site goes down?

Yeah I'm in there.
The whole thing reverted to PHPBB2 so have to do it from the start again.
Better if you close for the moment
