As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So on Friday I will be interviewing for a job in Portland, OR. I'm currently making 40k a year in Phoenix, AZ and would be making the exact same amount at the job in Portland. This is a completely lateral move, no upward advancement, altough with Oregon's higher income tax my net income will decline. This all screams bad idea to me... BUT...
It's PORTLAND... a place I have always wanted to live. I don't mind living in Phoenix, I have friends here and even some family, but I have really always wanted to live in Oregon, and I think Portland could be awesome. So, I seek advice H/A, what do you think? And, since there are so many Portlandites on these boards, perhaps even some specific advice on where to live and how to live on 40k (pre-tax) in Portland if I do make the leap...
When I was a little kid, I always pretended I was the hero,' Skip said.
'Fuck yeah, me too. What little kid ever pretended to be part of the lynch-mob?'
