    The priority for me is no neighbours & not blistering heat, i'm not a sun worshiper and have heard the south island is cooler than the north and not unlike Scotland?

    What's the name of the telephone company over there so i can search their job website?
    You would be right at home on the South Island, particularly the city of Dunedin, which was settled by mostly Scots and where everyone sounds like "Billy Connely"
    New Zealand like many other countries is caught up in the economic mess and redundencys are aplenty. In many respects the telecommunications field seems to be one up on the U.S. but I don't know about employment opportunities. My SIL is a transplanted Brit and is co-owner of the Lap Top Co. here in Christchurch. I will PM his email to you and I am sure he would be happy to fill you in. Like with many things, contacts make the difference. New Zealand is not as tropical as many think as it lies pretty far south. My home area in California is much hotter than even the North Island here.
    The telephone company is "Telecom". I will tell my SIL to expect contact from you.

    Re: New Zealand

    I dont know, can we really even regard New Zealand as a region ?
    I mean yea its there, people reside there but is it significant enough to give it region status ?
    I propose New Zealand be referred to as 'that place'
    Its a demotion sure but I think I speak for all of the continents when I say its what the rest of the world is calling for.
    Thank you

    Sorry Nomad----Adak, Alaska in the Aleutian Islands has already been designated as "That Place"

    New Zealand has long been referred to as "AOTEAROA"(Land of the long white cloud)
