It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

So I got a phone call this afternoon from a place I applied to a short while back. We chatted a little about the nature of the work and I discovered that the team does a lot of testing for Vivendi and Microsoft, , one of their recent projects was Fable and they mostly concentrate on RPGs. The contracts were short and the benefits few since it was aimed for less experienced testers but if you were any good you would get several more, or be made permanent.

So there was a party in my pants going on at this stage, and then came the kicker, the most they would possibly offer would be the same as I was on this time last year. Leaving aside the annoyance that people are getting paid to play games for the same as I was getting for the tedious shit I do, this is rather heartwrenching. So here I am, budgeting.
