Yea I know I put down Windows 7, but I know SOMETHING about it so that's why it's there.
Hi there
I fixed the problem by removing Adobe Reader 9.1 in it's entireity and re-installing Adobe Acrobat plus the 7.1 update (note the Acrobat application - not the reader).

Now it works fine as per attachment.

I'd change the resume a little bit -- summarize your main skills on P1. Most people won't even begin to look at pages 3,4,5 etc these days. If pages 1 and 2 don't impress you might as well go and work in your local bar (actually these days you might even enjoy it more ) .

I.T seems to pay less and less -- unlike most other jobs the LONGER you are in I.T the LESS you actually get paid - especially as an external contractor).

I have some friends in I.T who were earning around 800 - 1.000 GBP A DAY as SAP consultants around 2001 and were NEVER out of work. Last week some of these guys were "Scratting around" trying to find a few weeks work at around 240 - 290 GBP a day and wishing they were working like me as a Free Lance Tech Photographer and journalist.

I never got paid the 1,000 GBP a day but work has been pretty constant even if it is a lot of travelling.

Unless you HAVE to do it I don't recommend IT as a full time job anymore -- too much offshoring to India etc and you probably have to deal with the WORST management structure on the planet -- usually full of "Non Technical people" making Technical decisions.

Anyway good luck.

These days - Engineering - especially Gas and Oil, but some Electrical Generation, Plumbing, Carpentry, Bar staff. Photography. specialized journalism (me !!) and Politics seem to be the best paid jobs around now.

Vista Ultimate x64, Windows 7 RC 7100

Ah, thanks for the info jimbo. I guess it's time I find something else I'm good at. I've never really been good at anything but this lol. I do like photography though and I hear freelance web designing/developing is still at it's peak.

That time has come and gone, the Internet is a global market where the only difference between a dev in your own country and a dev in the 3rd world is the price and amount of time they will put in on a project.

Any complex/time consuming web development or artwork I want doing these days I contract out to developers/designers in India as it's far cheaper.
