well done, I really hope it's the start of more to come. I've noticed that things seem to be a bit more 'active' compared to this time last year so maybe we really are coming out of the recession?

thanks!...it's not anything 'massive' but it's a start after such a long drought...though looks like there maybe more work to follow..just 3d stuff for print/net

looks like my arch design example project i setup for myself opened a few doors once i posted it up on my front end of my site last week...gave someone confidence in me to call me up.

even though the freelance work is not building/arch design related it showed
i can do more than 3d characters and space ships!:D

Recession? What recession? I have to look really hard to see any evidence of a recession where I live. I had seen all the doom and gloom about it on the news and feared that it may come here but it doesn't seem to have affected much here except maybe a few industries that depend on exports. Good to hear people are finding work again in places hit hard by recession. :thumbsup:

Good to know. Recession here is doing well, no sings of recovery.

Yeah, things seem to settle back, slowly but surely.

Since the new year I have this strange feeling new era is beginning. Or I'm just tripping :)

Bravissimo old bean, don't forget to put some of that cash aside for essentials such as whisky. Don't go frittering it all away on silly things like food and heating. ;) :D :D

That really sucks. :( If that were to happen to us we would probably be down to a one man shop instead of four.

Congrats, I actually just got word of a huge job myself after almost the whole of drought. Starting sometime this week I should be busy for a few months.
