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!
It's like Thunderdome, but both men come out and you get paid [roadwarrior thread]
I just started a job as a consultant traveling back and forth to my client's site each week, and wanted to tap the hive mind for any hints, tips, or general advice about transitioning to the lifestyle.
I've got the basics like my miles account set up, a solid new laptop bag (Timbuk2 Blogger 2.0) on the way, and my wardrobe is mobile and easily packable, but beyond that I'm not really sure what I could look at to make life more convenient.
I'm pretty sure lugging around luggage is more hassle than it's worth, but I'm not sure what to look for in terms of a wheeled bag that's big enough to pack dress shirts and pants into with minimal wrinkleage but small enough to gate check.
Storage isn't an issue, since I have an apartment that's mine as long as I'm at the site, so there might be something to just lugging everything down there and keeping all my clothes there and dry cleaning in town, with only minimal carry ons for whatever I need on the weekend.
I'm also buying a small mountain of used books on the cheap to pass the travel time, which is especially useful since free wifi seems to be verboten in airports these days.
So HA, what glaringly obvious things am I missing and what secrets can you impart?
