RugbyD wrote:great stuff so far guys. i appreciate it. ;-D

to clarify some things so far:

won't be having a car
will be living in the city
99% my apt....er, flat....will have to be furnished
our office is in Mayfair
i can play non-contact sports still
no footie.
dear god no footie. i just can't do it.

electronics question: is the issue one of both socket type and voltage? will adapters naturally adjust for the voltage difference or will i have to buy something separate? can i bring some stuff over along with a US surge protector/power strip and make ilfe easy that way?. things i'll definitely be bringing: electric shaver, DVD player, maybe an Xbox/PS2. i have a desktop, but i'm not sure what I'm going to do about that yet.

what about cell phones? i have Verizon right now. can i just call them and thell them to "switch me over" when the time comes?


I did consider mentioning cellphones. Tbh, you're probably best just buying a new one over here.

I'm sure this is the most obvious point, but it's also probably the most important. Make sure they give you a large enough raise to cover the cost of living increase. Other than Tokyo, London is the most expensive city in the world to live in. It would totally suck to move all the way to London only to find out you don't make enough money to enjoy it.

yeah, pay negotiations haven;t even started yet and the variables will depend on what my expected tenure is over there. i'm talking to people who did the move several years ago and were at a higher level than me so they are giving me lots of detailed info on that end.

Reminds me of the hotel in Revenge of the Nerds II- The Coral Essex. But some of the lights were burnt out. :-b

Congrats Rugby! I'm not sure I'd want to live in London, but I'm jealous you're making such a huge change in scenery. Should be fun. ;-D
