Ladies and gentlemen... That was Vertigo, here until next Thursday.  BTW,
try the veal.  ;-)

To address Alex's point, it might be interesting to ask you all what your
favorite websites are for "skills vs. compensation" information (short of
buying surveys from Gartner or some such).  It's always good to have a
reliable (???) yardstick handy to see whether one's offer is reasonable.

Hostility, no, I'm never hostile.  :)  BTW, I quit.
