I was at business dinner a few weeks ago. 8 of us with a $3,000 bill (the customer liked the good wine). So the server gets $600 for two hours work.

After we paid the bill, the customer decides...

Re: A traditional good indian restaurant in Calgary???

We ate at Maurya in Kensington the most.

Rajdoot I never liked -- slooooooow service, poor food. Same with that fancyish one on 14th Ave. Taj Mahal gets "A" for effort with the decor. Food is...

This is illegal unless they can it can be justified. By justification, they have to demonstrate that the law prevents them from hiring anyone but a US citizen.

Re: Mail-in rebates?

They are a scam in principle. The idea, obviously, is that not everyone will mail in the rebate.

Fine you say, the ones that do get the rebate. Except they use that rebate to post an advertised...

Re: Voip

I use Vonage. Accept it for what it is, a "best effort" service, and you'll be impressed 99% of the time -- assuming your internet connection is decent.

I can't think of any domestic router that does QoS. In any event it wouldn't be worthwhile, because you're routing the packets over the internet where QoS headers wouldn't mean anything anyway. On...

Re: where to live in Calgary?

The NW and the SW are the nicest areas in Calgary. The SW has the most expensive neighbourhoods in town, but the NW is more scenic. If I was moving back tomorrow I'd move somewhere in the NW.

Re: Job Hunting in the US - Differences to Blighty

Never ever ever ever put citizenship / visa status on a resume. Never. Never. Never. It puts your potential employer in a difficult position in several ways.
