Sysadmin trained his offshore replacements, sat back, watched ex-employer's world burn

I retired at the end of May, in April with not much time left, the HR twonk came to ask me to train my successor and I said no.

Be said 'You have to' so I explained that I came to the company with my knowledge and that they paid me to use it, if I had to pass in on to anyone else it was my IP so they would have to pay for it and pay me a different rate for training.

The twonk asked how much and I replied with a large number so he walked away muttering.

If they get stuck they can ask me back at a consultant rate.
