Changing name from offshoreoildude to PNGMK

I've lost my password for OSOD and can't recover it (as the email address is also dead). I don't think I'll be around much - GE just bought my employer and I suspect I'll be working way too hard for the next year or so.

Seems pretty clear. Cyprus was/is a money laundering, ask no questions, capitol. Now that the house of cards has come down, who is going to lose? It needs to be the foreign investors who dumped their cash into the banks... they knew what they were getting into and why they were using Cyprus banks. ...

You will have to hire locals as well in order to have sufficient quota to hire an S pass holder. I don't what industry it would be in though I'd guess it would have to be the service industry.
