Sorry to hear that matey - it's never good. Wait, does that mean you won't be the custodian of pooex anymore? It's the end of an era, I shall stop playing in memorial.
Anyway, I got laid off last xmas and got a stonking pay out, mainly because the parent company wanted me to go on garden leave for 2 months and then work for them. So I pocketed the cash (which is tax free btw) and never looked back.
