Well, my friend Rakesh just got notice that his contract won't be renewed when it expires in a month.

On one hand, they gave him 30 days notice. On the other, he's freaking out a little.

What they told him was that they were keeping either him or me, and that since I had more experience and a better understanding of the system, they decided to keep me.

Bear in mind that just two weeks ago, we were informed that they will be hiring new contractors, and at least one of them will be for our team.

Personally, I think it's a personality conflict with one of the guys on our team who "dunt like ferriners".

Rakesh is quite capable, very hard-working, and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He has a specialty in smaller embedded systems, but his OOA skills are not as sharp as a more experienced designer.

Anybody who knows of anything in the country that might be of interest, please let me know.
