Maybe when you've trained people, you should pay them more, then they might 
stay...?  Oh, right, the idea was to get cheap monkeys, (oops sorry) cheap 
indians, (oops sorry) cheap foreigners, (oops sorry) cheap students to do the 
job.  Forever...?

What is it with the software industry that cheap == best.  As someone said:

	"You can have any 2 of: Quality, Performance, Price" 

Please feel free to correct the quote, (attribution to Archimedes perhaps?)
