    Default Boomed!

    I am sure the tag cloud has got smaller since the last time I was boomed...

    Just accepted an offer which was "direct" but forced through an agency (payroll handling margin), so I though the rate was good until I found out the contract is inside IR35 and I was informed by others working there already that the agency won't change any Ts & Cs. Role is interesting, I will learn all about ERP (I found a ERP for dummies tutorial on the interweb) and will have 90 minutes of commute each way to try and read / sleep whilst standing all the way!

    So Boomed nevertheless, can't complain, it will be 12 weeks on the bench by the time I start next month
    This default font is sooooooooooooo boring and so are short usernames

    One inside gig isn't going to kill you and it hardly means you are in the breadline. Getting that cash rolling is always good and some upskilling is a double bonus!

    :banana is in order.
