No problem for me.
Itbs just that if one expects all bad from an event, it will usually turn

Sometimes, onebs assumptions actually make the problem.

Out sourcing can provide positive experiences and can be the doorway a
better situation.

My personal experience with out sourcing was that I lost a Windows NT admin
job and was able to get back into UNIX work.  (While my friends was much
better than mine, my experience was very positive.)
