I'm moving this summer, tell me where to
May 2nd 2012, 03:48 CEST by Milan Brezovsk√Ĺ

I know this is a weak attempt to add a new topic to the front page, but why not.

I'm leaving my job at the end of May. Then I want to start working on my own projects. My flatmate is moving out by the end of June, so my boring options are
1. find a new flatmate
2. move to a different apartment within Prague

Or, you know, I could just try something new.

Letís say I want to spend up to 800 Ä per month for everything, incl. the rent. So letís say 400 Ä rent, 200 Ä food, 200 Ä internet, phone, mass transit and a minimum of fun.

My requirements are:
- I need to be able to be there without a visa, or with an absolute minimum of paperwork. I donít mind being there 3 months and then moving elsewhere.
- I cannot stand more that 22 degrees Celsius to function.
- I prefer politically stable governments, which is to say, nowhere on Earth.

My candidates are:
- Iceland, I could get a tiny room for like 320 Ä. I love the nature. I donít mind the weather. I could hang out with Gaggle.
- Scandinavia. I seem to get along well with people from there.
- Poland. I havenít done much research, but again, friendly people + the language (basics) should be relatively easy to learn.
- New Zealand - although I donít want to fly there + care about a visa. I could stay 3 months on a visitor visa.
- Balkan - Serbia, Croatia, Romania? Havenít done any research yet.

In general, I would prefer English-speaking countries. UK seems too expensive and I donít trust the political scene there; I donít care about USA except for my friends there; Canada also seems to grow more immigrant-unfriendly, and most of other EU states are too expensive or unable to accommodate lazy ass like me who doesnít speak anything useful but English.

I might also just couchsurf around Europe for a few months to see the world and then settle down wherever I like, after experiencing the culture for myself (or just return to Prague).

Why do you distrust the political scene in the UK? It's been a pretty stable democracy since, like, the 17th century or something.

As soon as you step outside of London you will discover a nation of people who do not give a flying fuck about the Olympics.

They still will be affected by it, no? Not as much as the ones in & around London, obviously, but still more than they would be in another country.

Yea, no way it's going to work but I gotta to my part and try to socialize it to re-bubble it. I kicked in $20.

I'm going to back the project, but the guy is about to find out why there aren't any "real" games on iOS/mobile. Because no one's going to fucking wait until Q32013 to make/play a game.

Well, maybe I was wrong and they just suck at marketing. Republique is up $100k from yesterday, so they might yet make it.

Deadlock: "stable" democracy, as in, no bloody revolutions, doesn't mean I like the decisions of your government, or have a gut feeling that I'd feel comfortable in that country, based on random news articles like something about outsourcing some police tasks to private contractors, etc. I'm not doing investigative journalism here, and I'm not saying UK is a bad country to live in, or that your freedom of speech is in immediate danger (unless your name is Assange).

So far I'm inclined towards Tallinn / Estonia. The couchsurfing community there is active, the apartment prices range between nice and amazing, 46% of population speaks English, the weather is nice, it's close to Finland and St. Petersburg for trips, so for now it fills my criteria.

What a surprise, 80% of developer jobs in Tallinn are for Skype. I guess I could try that eventually; I like how their requirements include
- User Focused & Humble
- Disruptive & Fun
- Fast & Decisive
- Respectful & Honest

I will sure try my best to be disruptive!

If you bring up the fact that disruptive and humble are a bit of a mutex, do you get nerd points?

I've skipped D2 so I'm in no hurry to play it. Actually, seeing as I'm exchanging my desktop for a notebook with a low-end graphics card next month, I'll be glad if I can run Torchlight 2, which I'm kinda curious about.

Diablo 3 stress test stressed my PC when playing with 3 or 4 players. Not sure if it's for me. Torchlight 2 beta, by comparison, did not punish my PC with 4 other players (5 total). As much as I'd like to play D3 with crappers (and I might break down eventually), I'm not sure it will be a good experience with my PC's CPU at the minimum end.

I buckled and got it. Apparently Blizzard is buckling, too, cause no one can play. What a bunch of shit heads. At least it seems to run better than during the stress test.

Actually it would run great for me as a single player game if that was it was.  Instead it's an online game whose servers seem to be down alot.

I'm looking for a TV series (from probably PBS), where they tell you how something/an invention came to be. The one show I watched and do somewhat remember was something like "How Air Condition was invented". All the shows were hosted by the same guy I believe.

Started out I think with something about mosquitoes and malaria and blah blah blah blah 30 or 40 minutes later...and that's how AIR CONDITIONING came to be.

Anyone know?

Thx!

There's also "The Day the Universe Changed", an ancillary series by Burke. However, if you watch S1E1 of "Connections", you do get a nice creepy 911 thing going on.

I'm going to play this game a bit differently. I'm moving and I'll tell you where.

I'm moving from Whidbey Island to Port Angeles. We are moving out into the boonies a bit, but not too much. Really nice place, private and the family loves it.

I'm with them on how awesome it is, but I'm a bit worried too. Because it's the boonies, I'd be a 2.5 hours commute to the nearest software development place if the virtual job were to go belly up. That's a good thing really, in that I don't want to live near a city anymore, but... it's all my safety net. I have no doubt I can get a job in any city in this country. Do I have doubts about getting another job easily while living out in the woods.

So I'm little nervous about the idea. That said, I think I will do it anyway. Can't always leap with a safety net involved. And the house and the town and the people and the internet and the schools all seem MUCH better than where I am now. I could see myself living there for years and years to come (which is the point).

Just, you know, it's hard to see the future.
