The Biggest of "Thank You"s

Posted 07 February 2011 - 09:29 PM

POPULAR

Hey guys,

I started programming a bit over a year ago and never had a teacher/lessons/friends who code. Because of this I made the DIC community put up with horrible, horrible questions about the simplest of things just so I could follow something I love doing.

Today I signed a contract giving me a job for 12 months as a software engineer for a major developer in Australia. Because of this I'm going to have a job for the next year/will be able to go to university next year etc.

Thanks DIC. I really couldn't have done it without you.

Will

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 6

Congrats!
Are you moving to Australia, or working from home in the UK?

I lived/worked in OZ for 3 years. That 457 work visa papework is so much fun when you are a yank <not!> Being a fellow member of the Commonwealth it should be a bit easier for you.

That's why I married one when I was over there and brought her back to the USA.
Funny thing is we met at Starbucks when she said to me "I love that exotic yankee accent". So it works both ways.

Very true about the "exotic" thing. I dig the American accent. Like a lot. And I actually really dislike the Australian accent.

My ex-girlfriend had an Irish accent. It was amazing.

Grass is always greener, eh?

I'm jealous, haven't been home in almost 6 years, haven't seen the ocean in all that time, and not only am I not in Australia, I'm in shitty Wisconsin. :(
