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).

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've had only one instance of getting booted from the server, for like 5 mins. Otherwise it's been fine.

I'm just happy it runs on my 2 year old Macbook Pro so I can play in bed.  Haven't tried multiplayer yet though.

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.

Good luck and I'm happy if you're happy but... Port Angeles is kind of a hole.  Not so much "ooh cool, we're out in nature and away from the bustle of city life" and more backwater redneck mill town.

Really? I went through there and really liked it. I don't mind some redneck, and it had a good portion of people trying to eat well (first thing we found was a csa) and more local food than anything we've had in Oak Harbor. And the google told me it has a pretty sweet farmer's market year round.

We still haven't signed papers, but it's looking hopeful and wonder of wonders, the internet will be better 10m outside of Port Angeles on the side of a mountain more than it is here on Whidbey. Silly shit.

I don't remember that one (not its connection to PC, I mean), but now that even the AV Club has decided to cover The Thick of It, it's high time you all did so as well. It's bloody brilliant, I must say.

I'll make a mental note and follow through in a couple of years. I'm enjoying Community very much, maybe next I'll start with Dexter or Sherlock or something.

Besides Avengers, the movie highlight of recent months was a documentary called Urbanized.

It's hard to top the superfriends season with Julia Stiles, but it's still a fun show.  Although I'll admit, the twist at the end is retarded every time I see it.  And that includes Fight Club.

This is the season with the religious motif? Yeah it was odd, uninteresting characters and a fairly lame twist. Rather too Shyamalan-esque.

Prometheus isn't bad but I bet expectations are important. I went into it not having seen trailers or knowing anything about it and came out thinking it's, we'll, not bad. But not good either. It's overall a pretty dumb movie, but I liked certain small parts enough that it made me think about the movie after leaving the cinema which I'm counting as a positive.

And I didn't even mind the 3D.

That's not a very good review of Prometheus...but then again it's gaggle, so let me check some other sources too...RT says 79% right now. Sounds like maybe gaggle is spot on this time?

Anyone else see it?


I just recently saw Snow White & The Huntsman, which was actually a good movie right until the last third where it got confused and the editing/flow went to shit. I do not recommend.

My biggest problem with it was that you could easily make the movie less stupid by removing scenes and not replacing them with anything.  Although, after reading that thing you linked on Facebook, I think the stupid may go a lot deeper than I initially realized.

This. The premium for seeing it in Imax 3D was actually worth it. Scott and his cinematographer make other people working in 3D look like noobs.
