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!
Hey guys, I know we have quite a few Brits around these parts so I thought I'd ask for a little advice. I'll be spending a few months in London through a study abroad program, so I was curious about a few matters.
For one thing, how far does 250 pounds go in order to feed one's self for a week? This assumes I'll not be dining out with any frequency in favor of just generally purchasing groceries.
I'd also rather not stick out any more than necessary. Do you guys tend to find it condescending when foreigners, or at least Americans, use your terminology when equivalent terms are about as easily understood? It sounds like a ridiculous question, but somehow I'd feel uncomfortable asking where the "loo" is when I'm sure I'd be understood perfectly as well having just asked for the "bathroom," with the added advantage of not sounding as though I'm trying hard to be culturally apt.
For that matter, are there differences in general terms that are likely to draw some confusion?
I'm sure more questions will come to mind, but if anyone has any other general advice for living in London, it would be appreciated.
