What trends are we seeing these days in the IT market? Well, a couple. One, we're seeing more and more companies move to open source technologies, and what I mean by that is technologies that are available and free, that you can get online, whether it's Linux or other related technologies. So we see more and more companies move to those technologies as those technologies become more robust.

We are also seeing a lot of companies moving to .NET, Windows .NET development, both web development and Windows forms development. We also see a number of companies that are rolling out business applications or upgrading business applications, and they need people associated with supporting and implementing those business applications.

Then another area that's been very, very hot lately is the whole business intelligence data warehouse space. We have a number of roles in that space where companies are gathering data, and now they want to know what to do with that data to help drive the business. So those are probably the three or four main areas that we see growth in.
