I saw that too and shuddered.  I can't see the cost of living being
THAT much lower in winnipeg.  That being said, it might be an ok job
for a kid straight out of school, living at home.  25K = 12/hr
basically.  you can make more than that in retail.

I assume you're talking about the Novator posting.  A friend of a
friend works there, though not as a coder.  From everything i've heard
it seems like it'd actually be a pretty good place to work.  Good
benefits, right downtown close to TTC, big established clients.  /shrug

Whenever I hear Accenture i think Mississauga.  I'm not sure if i
really should be thinking that or not though.
