Will there be repercussions? Probably it'll colour some prospective employers' against you (same as if you worked for a spammer; though some people might even consider that much worse :), others may not care one whit. The same with other geeks: some are probably going to look down their nose at you, others may think you've got the coolest job in the world (I can certainly think of some former coworkers that'd fall into the latter category).

As for the working in other countries, only place I could think you could even start looking for an answer to that would be possibly talking to a lawyer specializing in immigration and the like. Or if you've got a specific country in mind try contacting their closest embassy or consulate.

And lastly as for being exposed to the porn, one would think they'd sell that as a fringe benefit (fringe . . . or lace . . . maybe feathers . . . sorry, where was I? :). Would make bringing extra work home with you more attractive.

Would I have considered taking it, probably no. Then again I'm married with young kids. But if it was a choice between slinging pr0n and slinging burgers at Mickey D's, it'd start to look better and better.

    [Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
    [LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
    [ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
    [LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
    [ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
    [ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
    [ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
    [choroba]: LanX was there a way to recover the numbers from the remaining information?
    [Corion]: LanX: Ow ;)
