I think we have to assume it's the death, and take action accordingly. Many 
consultants I know will not take a full-time job, (some have been on the beach 
6 months), because they think things will improve. I think they will not 
improve, because the bulk of new develoment work seems to be on other 
platforms. The AS/400 is kept, when it is, to do what is does, run the core 
business. They dont; need consultants for that apparently.

The same is true here in the Los Angeles area.  In 23 years in the midrange 
arena (18 of them as a contractor), the longest I had ever gone without a 
contract was one day.

At the beginning of this year, I was without a contract for two MONTHS, and 
know of two other capable contractors who were in the same boat during that 
period.

Does anyone think this is a temporary slump in the market, or is this the 
death of the RPG contract market?
