This is great news for me and my shares in TSLA.

I moved country (from Australia to New Zealand) and it was the best thing I ever did.
I want to move again (now to SoCal or the Bay Area but visa issues yay) and am really looking forward to it.
People SHOULD move and experience life in a new area. Especially in a different country where possible.
Surprised NO ONE is mentioning this....
Sheep Marketplace went down yesterday after weeks of suspicious behavior such as disabling withdrawals of money, a countdown to when withdrawals would be available but running at a slower speed, still no withdrawal when it expired, minimum of 1BTC withdrawal so people would deposit money, and more.
So far it appears some $47 million worth of bitcoins was stolen.
I have no problem for paying for my own relocation costs. (And honestly, its not going to be expensive.. its just me, I have no family, and I've relocated countries before so already have experience. And I visit the US often enough that I am familiar with the area I'd like to go live/work.) And I have friends and a relative there. So plenty of places I can live at for free for a few months before I get my own place, etc as well.
Got a US bank account, phone number, and more already. All I need is a job offer and visa
I'm an Australian living in New Zealand for a NZ Telco, so.. Hi.
And re: applying for US jobs, yeah, that's the response I've received. Yeah I am pretty serious about wanting to move there. Been in NZ basically 5 years now and figure its time to go somewhere else (and no, I don't want to go back to Australia.)
My guess is US employers want to either,
1) Find someone ASAP (so local is good, but expensive)
2) Get someone cheap who is willing to be a slave on a H1-B visa (because if they get fired they get deported.) Dealing with the hassle of getting them in on a visa is acceptable because they will work their butts of for minimum wage.
Aussies/Kiwis are like #1, will want the high pay but with the hassles of a visa so employers just won't consider us at all. We're the worst of both options and thus the least desirable.
Anyway, that's the feeling I get...
Very interesting stuff. Having lived in the IT world my entire life (I got into programming when i was 12) I really forgot thats how the world operates.
I think part of it is because those industries barely evolve. You go to school, you study, you pass, you get a job, get some experience and that's it...
In the IT and Tech world everything is evolving and changing so rapidly you have to constantly learn on the job. You are NEVER done learning in IT. That's why we expect to learn on the job and figure out things as we go along; because that's how we've done things our entire lives.
Perhaps other people (especially hiring managers, recruiters, HR) need to learn that this is HOW tech works?
I'm an Australian Citizen and work as a Senior Systems Admin at a telecommunications company. I'm looking for a job in the US on a visa (E-3 which is easier to get than H1B for Australians).
What do you think would be my chances? I guess you'd need a copy of my CV, but just wondering if real employers who are struggling to find the right candidate would bother with the trouble of getting an E-3 visa for an Aussie? (FYI the E-3 is a lot less work than getting a H1B but because its not well known known nobody seems to really want to bother with it).
I also visit the US yearly and could interview in person and have a US ph number (voip) employers can call me on too.
They can get someone younger for much less pay.... and that's basically, it.
You pay for experience, and employers don't want to pay for yours.

Lync 2010 is the biggest steaming pile of shit I have ever used. Leaks memory like a sieve. Can't handle it crashes when the conversation in the window gets too long (chatting all day for example.)
MSN and Skype have NONE of these problems. Maybe newer versions of Lync are better but 2010 is truly abysmal.
No idea what version the server runs, sorry.
Wifi and BitTorrent Sync?
I personally love BitTorrent Sync...
The average income in Australia is more than double in the US thats why prices are higher.
I use shipito personally. Back when I used to live in Australia, and now that i'm in New Zealand. Great service.
I picked shipito after doing my research online, you probably should do some research and read up on some reviews and make an informed decision yourself.
In Australia and New Zealand we also have a GST system just like Canada. And Simgapore.
It's what a sensible country does. Your state based tax system is pretty brain damaged and only going to cause more and more problems as time goes on..... goodluck with that.
Juniper uses FreeBSD as its OS? NetApp uses FreeBSD (or at least a heavily customized version of it.)
Not everyone has gone with Linux but I suppose the majority have. Still, as long as its Unix embedded and not something crazy like Windows...
