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!
Well, after twenty-two years of living on Kauai, I've finally had my fill of this rural, backwater rock. Dear lord this place is horrendous, but that's not really the point of this thread.
I've decided to move to Seattle, because it seems like a nice city, it's almost the polar opposite of Kauai in terms of climate and culture, and, at least from what I can tell, seems to have a rather high nerd quotient - which after living on an island with, literally, three nerds, is a rather large selling point.
Now, as someone who's never actually been to Seattle, I was looking for any general advice/information about the city - good neighborhoods, places to avoid, etc. (Keep in mind that, as someone who's lived on island with one major road and an actual law that buildings cannot be taller than palm trees for the entire span of their life, I have no idea what to expect from living in an actual city.) I'm on a rather tight budget, so information on good, cheap neighborhoods would also be helpful.
