    I have a Powerboat Charter Company and Sea School, based on the south coast, but often working the med or further afield.
    At this time of year I have plenty of time off and can spend time playing with the net (when the accountant thinks I am working on the books). /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    IT Manager for an Accountancy Firm in Manchester. Not a bad job but wish they'd let me change my company car every two months rather than every two years /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    Nice to see some non IT Geeks on the board /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif.

    Arrh! You heard of the new Thomson portals, Equity One and Yield One?

    They seem to be getting us quite good reviews!! Dont think Bloombergs like us much as we seem to be able to provide data so much cheaper!!

    Actually looking at changing jobs, got any going? Good Eurobond and indices knowledge /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
