Latest advice on sending money

I need to send around USD 10k to an AED account in AbDab

What's the latest thinking on the cheapest way to do this eg. a company like GCEN or peer-to-peer eg. Transferwise?

Thx

Re: Average wage

An excellent defence of your position Scamp. It's now clear from your argument that you're quite right. The UN should be informed and the wikipedia page for China updated immediately.

Dream come true

I met an older woman at a bar last night.

She wasn't bad for 40, we drank and chatted a bit, then she asked if I'd ever had the 'sportsman's double', a mother and daughter threesome?

I said no....

Packing cartons

Does anyone have any packing cartons they don't need (ie. the ones moving companies use)? Just need 3 or 4 boxes.

Re: IT geeks help please

Just type in some random numbers.

Given that you're asking this question, it's highly unlikely the rest of your spreadsheet works properly anyway :p

Re: Uzbekistan

civilised - fairly, Tashkent is pleasant enough

safe - yes, apart from some specific areas. Transition of power from Karimov, when it happens, could be messy

wet - yes, try Chelsea pub, fun...

Yeah it's rubbish, I left the industry twice. But it seems I'm reasonably good at it and dumb enough to go back :(

Very high level of burn-out and not good for relationships.
