in reply to Money vs. Perl
As stated previously, there is more points here than just money and perl. Job satisfaction is another very large point. Another point about the potential job that you are turning down; longevity. If I am reading between the lines correctly, it seems that the new job would only be for as long as they need you, not for a permanent hire. Would the gaining organization just throw you away when they are done with you? Is your current employer going to do the same? I guess you really don't know until it happens, unless they tell you up front. I don't think that I would leave a sure thing (ie: year(s) of employment) for something that might end in a few months.
