anyone expecting one?

And of the year is coming up folks! how many of my fellow webmasters and programmers are expecting bonuses. and if so, how much are you expecting to get?

Just wondering.

>>how much are you expecting to get?

Funny, we had a meeting about this 2 weeks ago. It's not all about "how much". Here are the top 2 suggestion we got from our little team :

More time away from work. (we average 46 hrs a week)
More private space to work in.

So it's not all about 'more money' for a day in the year, but primarly better work conditions for the rest of the year.

I will to achieve this for our team next year.

Well, I'm graduating from college December 21st. with a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice and I'm $46.000 in debt. Does that count?

Yeah, I'm gonna give me a bonus this year, based on productivity.
Trouble is I know myself too well and I know I'm lazy and could do better. I also know that funds are not abundant (the goose is not very fat at all) and that I'll not shout if I don't get one.
So, I expect I will carry on exploiting myself and say, 'Humbug!'
Errmmmmm, does that make sense¿ ;)

I'm paying the Norwegian government their bonus for letting me get a BA/Hons by paying back more of my student loans... So at least someone is getting a bonus. :(

Got more chance of it snowing in London on Xmas day, than me getting a bonus.. :(

ive got a xmas party....free food and bar till 8am... :)

Thats kind of a bonus...

But not likely to get extra cash. :(

This is a depressing thread....

I wrote an article on how to get a promotion that could be applied to how to get a bonus if anyone wants it! ;)

I'm getting a 10% bonus at the end of December which is nice... however, the Irish Government will be taking almost half of that away from me to help fund a new government jet.

No, I'm serious ;)

JOAT: I would be very interested in the promotion article...

I'll give you one Euro, which everyone knows is worth at least 100 Pounds Sterling if not more!

To the con artist in the corner! :)

Thats the most money ive every made out of the web....

Since it's the holiday season I'll send you a rare, special edition 1 Euro note. Now, it may look like a bad fake - but it is the real thing. Any Bank will convert it to it's Sterling value of £104.23.

It's in the post and should be with you by, oh, next Friday...

Sure no problem.

You can find my details on my website, just send it on (and put your home address in so i can send the article to you).
