William, my personal opinion here is that the 'recession' is something that is being put togther by the 'spin doctors' and what has happened on the stock market has simply got things back to normal, getting rid of all the fly-by-nighters. There are plenty of companies down here that are still busy and only down about a 1/3 in business. I know my company has been getting more enquiries form overseas. I got 3 in one day! So I guess the $ has got something to do with that now. Our exchange rate is about $NZ1 = $US0.51. It was up in the $US0.70's.
Yeah, the tutorial work is long work as you have to keep checking and also you know how to 'just do it', you have to put it down in words.
I am taking the morning off going to the gym today, just to take a break as Lyn and I are heading out for lunch later for some 'time for us'.
