So, I'm moving from Australia to Toronto, Canada (obviously, duh!) and seeing how one of my favourite net shows is made there I was wondering if you all had any suggestions on the city, getting a job (I'm a PHP/MYSQL dev & admin by trade) and what's there to do....

While you're at it, lanolin and that horrid shit you guys spread on bread.

Nobody would believe me if I told them people actually spread real crap on their bread.

THAT'S WHAT THAT EXCRETEMENT OF SATAN IS

Oh my lord. I don't know how one goes about extracting crap from yeast, but I cannot fathom why people would decide it would be a good idea to eat it!

I'm sure there's some place you can go to that helps newcomers to the city. Like a guide, or introduction video. "SO YOU WANNA LIVE IN CANADA EH?"

About getting a job, since you're a n00b to country you could try applying for job agencies to help you look for one. Seems to work a treat for some people. You seem pretty qualified so I'm sure the agency will help you find the right position.

EDIT: Vegemite is fucking awesome.

Wiki said the taste is somewhat salty, slightly bitter and malty.

I can understand being kinda salty/bitter at the same time, but malty? Uhm, doesn't sound that good to me.

Of course I seem to like kimchi, and there are people who can't understand why I eat that so. icon_razz.gif

Agreed.

Too much vegemite is bad, but it tastes so good in moderation.

I have Vegemite sandwiches everyday at school. It's great.


I could go for some Vegemite right now. *licks lips*

As much as entertaining as all this talk about Vegemite is (and for the record I like it) could anyone recommend a good website to look for share housing in Toronto? icon_smile.gif
