I'll support InterMail for cold hard cash. And lots of it.

I remember when I felt this way. Then one day my salary doubled.
My wallet went *wow* and I haven't looked back. 

I would suggest that most people burn out due to workload and
circumstances outside their domain (eg senior management). 
Neither of those factors are related to salary. People get paid
for what they know, how they solve problems, and how well they
play with the other children. Ensuring salespeople don't look
like asses is also a well-paid skill. I've never seen people get 
paid for working really long hours.


No longer looking for NeXT software and Solbourne OS/MP 4.1C.
Also no longer looking for Sun 4/330 3u memory boards and 
Solbourne series 5 cpu and memory boards and any K-bus cards. :-)
Although I will entertain cool NeXT software ala Mathematica.
