I've got all the time in the world and i still can't be botherd posting.

Or spell checking for that matter.

Anyway life seems so busy that i don't in fact make any time to post... yeah right... i've got all the time in the world but can't be stuffed.. tis such an aussie thing to seem really busy but in fact the only thing you end up doing on the weekend is playing grand theft auto on the modded xbox...

at least there is the snow in the next few weeks and a week off work after we all come back.. somthing i call the recovery week.

when i come back from the snow i think i might have to organise a camping trip... good ole fashion piss up and a fire... its always good value. just don't forget the beer and a can opener or we're all stuffed..

if you think a weekend camping trip might be a good idea e-mail me a and we'll get it organised.

Outsourcing, Good for business but what about Australia?

Outsourcing seems to be all the rage at the moment in and across most industries but what effects does outsourcing have on the rest of Australia?

lets take a look a few things that happen when outsourcing happens;

- People/staff get laid off
- These people stop earning money for while and for the industry that they are in becomes more competetive.
- Other employers can barter for lower wages becuase of the competition for jobs.
- The money that would normally go to the australian employees then leaves Australia therefore providing more money to other countries than australia. this provides more power to others while making Australian's poorer.
- The product or service that this company sells is downgraded due to employee disatisfaction (usually).
- The company that outsources usually loses product knowledge.

So on a grand scale how does outsourcing help?

in my view its doesn't i believe its makes other countries richer while making us aussies poorer.. the poorer Aussies are the less spending money we have and the less markets the companys have because there are less people who can afford to buy products

so why outsource? well to make you company more profitable in the short run without thinking of the future.

Melbourne Chocolate

It gets bloody cold in Melbourne and what better way to warm up bit with a sip of Hot Chocolate Melbourne style, Koko is where you can sample some of Australia's best Chocolate.

The next time you visit Melbourne, Vic. I suggest you visit the land of ommpha loompas and go to Koko Black Chocolate on the mall in the Melbourne CBD.

Where you'll be able to sample such things as:
