Thanks for the reply
This site is indeed a wonderful resource.
I had another inquiry. Are there any additional pros or cons to doing a short term (year or less) contract at a school? Are there differences in pay or anything? It seems like if I'm after adventure and a new experience, rather than money and a "way out," then committing to a contract with plenty of money kept safe in the bank at home sounds safe. SOUNDS safe.
Additionally, I have several web sites I've been managing for several years that actually bring in some half decent income and I've since put up a few personal proxy servers in the US. Do you know of anyone who uses this as a method for supplemental income?
I'm fully aware of the issues some have with the Internet in China but I'm confident that wouldn't be an issue in the administration of my web sites. Considering the exchange rate it seems like a pretty efficient way to ensure I'm not withdrawing from my savings accounts.
I agree with your post about my current career but I think (and hope) I'm in a decent enough position to be able to do a short contract without much hindrance.
