Re: People of the SF East bay......

Yep - it would be impossible to get a single family house in Pleasanton for that. Apartment in Dublin is probably the best bet out of the Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton area. The schools in Dublin...

Re: LAX to LHR flight

I don't know if it's an option for you but look at flying on Virgin from Vegas. You could drive there or get a cheap flight over from LAX. We saved close to three thousand dollars by doing that at...

Re: Thanksgiving side dishes

Re: This is AWFUL

Advertisers reportedly paid Google about $5.6B for YouTube ads last year - Google isn't just going to shut that down. Comcast will try and do a deal for some of that revenue in return for giving...

Re: Questions for which we need answers!

I find they're good projectiles for throwing at the cats when they decide to wake me in the middle of the night - otherwise I have to use shoes which can cause collateral damage to the mirror if I...

Re: Moral Dilemma - School !

I'd say a more important lesson is that you need to think for yourself and not just follow along with what you are told, like a sheep. Missing the last half day of school is not important, being...

Re: start up problems vista

Came late and looks like you've fixed this but I had the same issue with a Vista machine - MS put a bum upgrade in the last lot of updates they pushed out. If you simply rolled back to a restore...

Re: Flogging a painting

Call your local auction house - they should be able to tell you what they think they would get for it. Of course, if you sell it at auction there are no guarantees and most auctioneers are reluctant...

Re: California for work

Most of the big tech firms in SV have fairly well defined salary grades. Given they haven't asked your salary expectations yet they probably have a pretty good idea of where you fit and are...

Re: Moving to Oakland CA

I live in Pleasanton and commuted to Oakland for work until a year ago. It's not bad - certainly better than most commutes into London. The traffic isn't really bad if you're not getting close to the...

Re: The smell of lay-offs in the air ...

IANAL but I suspect "the most" an employer can do is sue you for breach of contract, claiming damages, legal costs and the cost of finding a replacement for the notice period. Employees would expect...

Re: American Football at Wembley

Until the 4th quarter it was so dire it probably made the folks that were there wish they hadn't gone! It's hard to imagine two worse teams to go and represent the NFL this season.
