Re: Moving to Aspen

Stuff happens here, when you can build your networks. There's more of a spirit of entrepreneurship here than I ever found back home. I'm involved in a couple of groups nudging towards start-up.

Re: Immigration lawyer recommendations

Re: Household Container transport for Move to US

It's my experience that most electronics, with modern power supplies are universal input. They will actually run happily from 90..280 volts. For the telly, that was on the labels. I think our Xboxes...

Re: Video for nerds: does the US have a 120V or a 240v power grid?

The single-to-three phase inverters are so inexpensive and versatile, I wouldn't bother.

Re: Question about British Qualifications and working in America?
