If you leave the US you won't have to pay US taxes.

Nope, the US is about the only country in the world that taxes non-residents the same as residents.

Not exactly. If you are a non-resident US citizen and you earn your income from a foreign company, then you get an exemption on this foreign-earned income up to $95K a year. So, you only pay US taxes if you make more than that amount.

Actually non-residents are only taxed the same way if the income was earned inside the USA. I live outside the USA but am a US citizen. I work for a company based outside the USA. I still have to file taxes in the US, but I also get an exemption for my foreign earned income. Unless you make more than $90K per year you wont pay anything in US taxes.

Streaming the Inauguration In a School? 201

Anonymous Teacher writes "I work in a small school in Washington and we are trying to prepare a way to watch the inauguration in 20 classrooms over a 1.5 T1. As our bandwidth severely limits the ability to individually stream to these rooms, is there an alternative to presenting it to the students? Are there any sites that offer a downloadable copy of the video quickly after the event that can be hosted locally or is reconfiguring the computers to use a proxy server the best solution?"

Always leave room to add an explanation if it doesn't work out.
