Hmmm... that would be me. I'm not worried, though, because I think I
have adaptability on my side (and we'll see how well that works out
if/when the time comes).

I seem to recall the topic of offshoring coming up on this list
earlier, though I may have been too busy to follow it. Were there any
stories of successful cases (i.e.where the company was happy with the
results)? If not, does anybody know of any?
