Subject:RE: Percona: Contact Details - a word on poaching
View as plain text  
I would like to *think* the dutch would be agreeable to advice from German and or French
supporters of the EU

Occasionally I am contacted by someone in the Hague for Database Administrator Positions
If you've been good about NOT doing strip searches on political enemies I can get you in
the door
On the other hand if you've been a full blown nazi with illegal wiretaps, strip searches
and harassment you might wind up in the Hague for different circumstances.

I am reminded of the platitude:

United we stand..Divided we fall
