    I dont think notifying all on edugeek of a 100k job is really worth it, but a job where you can earn 450m a year...
    For 450m per year, you could BUY the rights to SQL!

    Couldn't agree more - I've earned good money in the past - but in the end I got fed up of spending my time travelling and living out of hotels (anyone else seen "Up In The Air"?) - I'm much happier being able to spend time with my family, but sometimes torn by the feeling that I ought to be earning more...

    Then you could move it back out of Somerset, where the advert says it is.

    Ben there done that.
    I used to earn 60~100k as DBA. but I worked all hours and have actually spent nearlly 72 hrs on the phone sorting out problems in a far off country.
    Not for me thanks. Mortgage paid and gone, but then the kids have grown up and I missed them growing up .
    My missus said to me one day, 'Lisa has got here bronze'
    I said what are you going on about?
    'In tap' she said.
    I said 'When did Lisa take up tap'?
    six months ago!!!!!
    That was it time to change jobs.
    Now I work five mins from home, have all (bar 2 wks) school hols and can enjoy life.
    The only dif to me it has made financially is I can't waste money on stuff I don't need.
    We now live WITHIN our means.

    As the old priest said - he'd never met anyone on their deathbed who wished they had spent more time at work...
