    Hello BHW,

    Some of you may know me or had dealing with me before, and know that I work at a engineering company that services the auto industry. I was called into a meeting this afternoon, to find a motley group of employees from different sections, looking worried. We we then told that we no longer had a job - due to the economic turmoil, mainly no one buying new cars anymore. I had been made redundant

    Then I came home, in shock, switched on the computer and wtf, my hard drive crashed. I couldn't fucking believe it. Strike 2, goddammit.

    Rush job to the computer fixit guy I know - back online thank god or allah or whoever.

    My point?

    I am now free to spend a lot more time in this great blackhat community, this place kick arse imho, over any other forum, so please people respect that. pofactor is over in freelance, trying to clean it up - so people needing freelance, and face it no-one can know how to do everything, can be assured the people wont get scammed. We scam other people - not memebers! If everyone helps each other out with honesty, we can go about our business of screwing the dumb arse web surfer and bring home even more of the green. (or whatever color your money is :) )

    Sorry about the long thread, hey keep up the good work BHW members, you guys are great.

    So I will be around more - msg me if you need anything :)

    Man, I bet there are a lot of people in the same boat as you around the company these days. That being said, you have the right attitude, and I am sure you will be more successful now that you have the need and hunger for it.

    Sorry to hear that, man. Think of this as a blessing in disguise.

    Spend your money and time wisely and use this extra free time to make something happen.

    Now is the time, take action.
