Incorrect. According to offical data, Manchester United are the richest football club in the world purely by income. Real Madrid are not even near them, hence the signing of David Beckham to boost their image in Asian and American markets.

About 50% of Spanish football fans support Real Madrid. They are one of the most successful teams in the world, along with the likes of AC Milan.

They are also a member of the G9 - the worlds most powerful football clubs. The biggest teams in the world are all in Europe, since they attract the best by offering lots of money. The main teams in Europe who make the most money by competing in what is known as the "UEFA Champions League" - the most prestigious football tournament for football clubs in the world (watched by around 200+ counties and worth �30M for the winning team on TV revenue alone), are (in no particular order):

Real Madrid (Spain), Bayen Munich (Germany), Manchester United (England) and AC Milan (Italy). These teams usually qualify for the Champions League every year (played every year on qualification by finishing in the top 2-4 in their countries top league). They are usually seeded, which means they avoid each other in the preliminary rounds of the competition.

An array is fixed at compile time.

An ArrayList is a non-thread safe array whose size can dynamically change during run-time. Its really an array which is shifted into another array at least one size bigger than the original during run-time.

A vector is similar to an ArrayList, but with thread-safe capability. So any thread working on a vector will do so in knowledge that no other thread will be working on any object referenced from within the vector.

Simply write the appropiate event handler when the application exits. Writing anything with the Windows Task Manager would render your application platform-dependant.

No offence, but if you do go over to the US, you will need to use better English (particularly your grammar) as you seem semi-literate (but better than many others).

Good luck.

Sorry to hear that the indians have stolen your job. Seeing as your employer has not really treated you well, offer sub-standard knowledge transfer (delay the writing of docs which could be incomplete/confusing/lacking info). There is only so much you can do in 2 weeks - 10 working days. You employer will then regret sacking you.

Funny how you need 5 indians to do a job which would only need one person in the US. It sounds like they are not highly skilled, and just a bodyshop.

Good luck.
