Working in Afghanistan

WorkingInMiddleEastFilter: So ive been offered a job in Afghanistan at one of the FOB's (Forward Operating Base) there but i know little to nothing about working over there. The money is great however and my family could use the $ to help pay off some bills. The contract is 4month on 2 weeks off. They stress that it is very dangerous work, and just to clarify i will be doing IT work. I have a wife and two small children, 6 and 2 so i have to weigh in what it would be like to leave them for this time also. Can anyone offer any insight to what it may be like? Is it really that dangerous? Anyone with first hand experience?

Help me create a portfolio, quick!

I'm a writer, and I have a job interview on Tuesday afternoon.

How can I organize my work quickly into a decent portfolio that I can burn onto a CD as a leave-behind? Difficulty level - no Flash ability whatsoever, conversant with HTML.

Bring On The Big Dogs?

Should I put myself in the midst of big egos again? About 10 years ago I made the decision to exclude persons with big egos from both my personal and professional lives. I have been fairly successful at doing this and the result is a happier, calmer life. My reasons for choosing this strategy were a sense that, it was all about them, that they were generally incapable of listening, that a true equal partnership was impossible, that they would always take credit and/or throw me to the wolves in order to advance their career. Recently I've come into contact with some egotists and had the feeling that I could have richer fuller life if I let them into my life on a limited basis. Is this a good decision? How can I interact with this type of person without getting hurt or taken advantage of? How can I work effectively with egotists, is partnership possible?
