    is the position still opened?

  6. Hi, Moyamer.
    That did not help with the link, since you don't have a blogger profile.

    I am not sure exactly what went wrong in your situation, but if you got a job offer once, I am pretty sure they would be more than willing to talk to you again.

  7. I love Copenhagen, and AX development. Perhaps we will chose Denmark as our next home.

  8. Hello Vanya!

  9. I don't know. But if you are interested, you cannot really find that out unless you try and apply for it.
