It is interesting to see how some of the IT salaries compare to the 
Sunday Times article that contained rates of pay for some IT 

Software Engineer 6yrs+ $75k - $130k
DBA 0-5yrs $45k - $90k
DBA 5yrs+  - $75k - 100k

(From Sunday Time p65, 20 April 2008)

The article, unfortunately, did not include other programmers (other 
than "visual", or GUI based, programmers (as opposed to programmers who 
actually write code), and, conspicuously, did not include the 
"Interstate Comparison" component, for IT professionals.
