::Camor in Finland you get that $70 per hour as junior.::
Yes but in the UK you do not, as another example. UK average is around the same as Aus, 35-45k (Aus dollars equivalent). Finland likely has far less graduates, hence they earn more. Simple supply and demand.
Plus, what's the cost of living in Finland?? You can't compare different geographical regions, there are far too any variables involved to do so.

All universities have an increasing need to cater for whatever courses students want to pay for (directly or indirectly) due to governments' continually reducing their funding. You're now seeing the result of this. I'm sure there are other industries where it's similar. Look at the surplus of teachers we apparently have.

So do you have anything positive to add to AusInfront too, or did you join just to complain? Don't get me wrong, *constructive* opinions very welcome around here, but seems a strange reason to join and make a first post about.

::Also, could you please let me know (expected-average) rate per hour is charged here? As a junior in Europe you will be paid per hour around $70, how much does a junior, mid and senior designer charge? Of course I am just asking for average... and at least a minimum that is expected::
I'm not entirely sure I agree with this, where I work (in London) we quite regularly get junior freelancers in and they definitely don't get as much as $70 per hour (that'd work out to $2800 for a 40 hour working week which for a junior is astronomical), I'm not sure where you freelanced in europe but would say this is definitely not the norm
::I wouldn't pay a junior designer level freelancer $50/hour, sorry.::
I agree with @dave and a junior definitely wouldn't get this freelancing at an agency either
If you have your own clients I mean it really is up to you as to what you charge though but this should all be reflecting upon experience, knowledge and skills, what your worth rather then what is considered "average"

I use a custom developed Wordpress events calendar and ticket system from http://tri.be/.
Developer said it was painful to work on. No shortcodes either. The support has been and continues to be terrible.
I'd avoid the events calendar from modern tribe if i was to do it again. Saying that, it looks sweet and if you are prepared to develop it yourself its a winner. You can see it in action here:
@dave that looks amazing1

@Dave @Looney @signmeupmeow
My IT guy was able to run a few fixes on the machine so we could snatch and grab some files but not everything.
I have booked in with Apple to see if they can retrieve the rest of it. I am just missing a few emails and some photos so it's not too bad at the end of the day! Thank god.
And yes, I am investing in a better Ex HD, no more western digital for me! But can't afford another monthly bill for a subscription anything (cloud, adobe, money grabbing apps I'm looking at you!)
