Thanks, Celeste.

I am surprised that I seem to have sounded sort of pessimistic. Actually, I am 
very optimistic. (BTW, I know now where to get information on EU jobs.)

And now we know why Mr. Chan stirred activity in this newsgroup - he was bored
but not imaginative enough, so he needed some material for his spams. 
Mr. Chan, since you will undoubtedly read this post: believe me, I do not see
my illusions shattered or anything, I just see a political development taking
place which drives science into a direction I do not like at all, and I am 
getting out of this ALTHOUGH I am good at it, have the neccessary connections
and publications record. I would not do this if I did not see promising 

By the way, I am just back from a seminar of the german physical society 
on job prospects and opportunities for physicists, and am very surprised
that I felt like the most optimistic of all the people attending it. From
the talks given there by people working in industry, I even gathered that
this optimism is justified.
