From starting on the university to hopefully finally getting a PhD this will take a minimum of eight years. By that time I will have been in school for a total of 21 years (minimum)...

 

Geeze.. I would hate to see the total amount in student loans for all of that! ;) (granted, getting good paying, stable job more than makes up for it in the end)

Considering Dan is like 19 or something, I think he's counting grade school/highschool (or whatever equivalent they have over there).

Oh I realize that. I was referring to the 8 years for the PhD (if someone is going to be in university chasing a PhD for 21 years.. yikes! lol)

I've been at various schools for 20 years now, and I'm still without my masters degree... So yeah... I'd like to master my master pretty please.

 

Ouch. What happened?

Education is free in Denmark. When you're an adult you even get money from the government. It's not much though, up to about $850/month. PhD students are, as far as I know, also employed by the university so they get paid as well. With a job alongside the studies it's entirely possible to complete an education without any student loans. Besides, I'm not really what you could call a "heavy spender".

 

Also, CV was correct, the 21 years is all kinds of schools I've went to from when I started when I was about 6 years old.

Talk about differences... My first (full time) job paid as much... and it was well paid job for a guy like me. There were experienced engineers in my company that earned a lot less.

I'm sure that it would be considerably cheaper living where you do as well then.

I used to pay 270$ a month for rented room. One month ticket for commuting service is 35$. And when I check labels on clothes, prices in Euro are actually lower than in local currency (can't pay in Euro though).

Yeah. It seems that Denmark is pretty expensive.

But my point was: in Denmark a student gets as much money, as a qualified engineer in Poland... I think I'll have to look for a job in Denmark... I already had one proposition :)

Indeed and a lot of people move from Eastern European countries to work in Denmark. We do pay high taxes though and that's what is funding "SU" (Statens Uddannelsesstøtte, meaning "The Government's Educational Support" which is what I talked about earlier), free treatment at hospitals, visits to doctors, etc. The more you earn the higher you're taxed as well.

Denmark has double taxation agreement with Denmark, so I suppose that when played smart, It could be profitable actually. The lowest PIT rate in Poland is 18% (as of 2009), and the highest (and also the only other) is 32%. I see that in Denmark it can be as high as 62%... although I can't really understand now how the rates are calculated. I'll need to read more about it if I want to move there ;) Also there's something that's called '25% gross tax' but that's for really highly paid employees... And I thought our tax system was complicated... (well...it is, but in a different manner)

In Ireland we get student grants (means tested of course) up to about €4000 a year. I've been broke since I started college in September as my student grant is still on the back of the process line because of red-tape mistakes.

You could master AJAX in 10 minutes to an hour if you applied your self to it....  AJAX isn't very hard x.x.

Well one problem I am having is finding the best method to call a xmlhttprequest. I am using one from dynamicajax.com and instead I decided to go with w3schools since w3 is probably better

Do you mean the best way to create one?  I would just make a function that returns a new instance of it whatever browser it is.  Then, since the object is the interface, you can call it all the same.

 

 

 

//end thread hijacking ;p

I wouldn't use 1 very often.  It would have to be a very fluid site for me to do that.

 

 

Usually auto completing stuff is the only kind of thing that I use AJAX for.

 

 

I think AJAX is often overused though.
