    <sigh> well we're just in the middle of the Pink Slip/P45 grinder here.. 50% reduction in headcount in a department with two people.

    I'm the one staying. I'm really not certain what's worst except my coworker (who I've known as a friend for about 10 years) doesn't have that luxury. <sigh>

    Damn this real life 9 to 5 thing. At least I don't have to live off my affiliate earnings yet though.

    Dynamoo,
    You are so very helpful on these boards. I hope that your income climbs to the point where working 9-5 will be an option for you and not a neccessity.
    I am sorry about your friend.

    Just try to be glad that you still have a regular income provided by others.

    Affiliate marketing is a good way to earn some extra cash in the background, but the pressure caused by relying on it to pay the bills could take away the fun element.

    I sympathise with the friend - it's the kind of news you really don't need, but try not to feel bad about it - I'm sure he wouldn't want you to.
