Layoffs are a way of life. When JRiver laid me off Matt held me and Jim beat me with a rubber hose. There is a quiet dignity to that compared to some of the ones I've seen.

You're the stack man. Always will be. Thanks for that :)

Think I'm a baw-hair from being laid off too, which, after 30 years, is something I find a bit daunting.

I've had to lay people off in the past, when things slowed down.  It's no fun for anyone.

Most of the time, the economy is the reason behind it.  Political instability doesn't help.

Usually, the person leaving goes on to something good.  Our old developer, Steve, became a minister, something he had always thought about doing.

At nearly 73, I'm waiting for the axe to fall.  I'm lucky that the JRemote crowd doesn't have voting rights.

Good luck, Mark!  Go get 'em!

Cheers Jim. For us, it's the 'yoof'! No-one under the age of 30 buys a newspaper now :(

Our customers are dying, while the yoof rely on (and trust :o) Facebook and Twitter to keep them updated.

Thanks to you for stacks, DarkPenguin.  And thanks to you, Marko, for showing me how to use it for image processing and management.

I have been using JRiver for image management for several trips now.  Most of the subjects are wildflowers with or without insects; IDing those subjects and getting the IDs into images is a big job.  JRiver is vastly superior for my image management workflow compared to any alternative that I've tried out.

Some galleries of images from a May trip along Hwy 395 in California.

I'm just finishing galleries from a late July trip to Mount Rainier in Washington state.
