We have our own badass tacos here in OKC, but I'll be more than happy to give the Austin taquerías a once over. As far as non-work related stuff goes, I'm super excited about all of the new restaurants I get to try out, not to mention Austin's infamous live music scene.phileasfogg wrote:Congratulations!

I'll be working here which is right off of I-35.montiac wrote:Not sure where you'll be working...
Right now, I'm curious about what parts of town are sketchy and not suitable for me and the family to live in. Also, the same goes for areas outside of Austin proper (Red Rock, Pflugerville, etc.) My mortage in OKC is around $950 for a 3 bedroom, ~1700 sq. ft. house. I know that the housing market in the Austin area is comparable to OKC, but I'm curious what kind of house I can afford since my salary will be increasing by about $6000/year before taxes. Schools are also important, as my son will be going into the 1st grade this fall, and my daughter will be going to Pre-K. All day Pre-K is preferable, but if the Austin area is anything like here, you either have to be really lucky (lottery) or know someone to get a slot.montiac wrote:...but I can offer a few recommendations if you give me some more information. Be happy to help you out!

Yeah, the same girl. I think I had been living in Harrogate for about 6 months before it came up on IRC or the TG forums. Turns out that she lived there and tended bar, and was nice enough to pour me a pint of Guinness. She's been on here before, but it's been a while since her last visit. The last I heard, she was moving to York to go to the university there. Nice girl.thegleek wrote:Holy crap!!! Are you serious? This is the same Pillow that was on SG (sillygoth)... I don't think she was ever on TR... Maybe you knew her from TG?

Since they won't pay for my move at all, and they wouldn't/couldn't give me the Grade and Step that I requested, I doubt it. However, I talked to the HR lady this morning and it turns out that the start date that was given to me yesterday was due to procedure. She said that since I talked to management last week, I can expect a different start date soon; though no indication on when to expect said revised start date.just brew it! wrote:Any chance you can get them to cover the cost of going back home on the weekends until the house is sold?
Yeah, I've already come to grips with the fact that I'm probably going to be putting a lot of miles on my car soon.just brew it! wrote:Looks like a 6-7 hour drive each way between Austin and OKC. Painful to do every weekend, but you could do that for a while until the house sells.
