The consulting position implies a lot of traveling. But sometimes your are required to be in other city for a long time, as it just happened to me. From October I will be parked with client in Canberra for the next 3 months.
Can't say that I'm very exited or very disappointed. There are several pros and cons.
From one side, I have never been there before and would like to live there for a short period of time to understand how city looks like. But, from other side, I really fed up with traveling. I can't remember that I stayed somewhere more than 2 weeks from the beginning of June. I'm moving each 2 weeks either between cities or between countries. It doesn't make me comfortable and happy, and what's worse - I start feeling myself a bit shitty after 4 months on road.
But, if to put away all that traveling crap, the engagement in Canberra is really interesting from the development perspective and really challengeable - all the latest MS technologies in a big web-based solution and that was a key fact which tended me to accept this :) (Damn, I start hating myself for this, because I noted that very often the techny side of me prevails over the reasonableness)
So, Canberra in on the way :)
Damn, never thought that I may be such a nerd :)
And how nerdy you are? :)

It's my first post here.
Firstly, a little bit about myself - name is Michael Nemtsev, but mostly know as "LaFlour" among my colleagues. Originally I'm from Poland, but was born and grew in Russia. Live and work in Australia (Sydney) as Consultant since recently.
I'm MVP in .NET/C# for the last 2 sequence years. You can find detailed info about me there https://mvp.support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/profile/nemtsev
I've been blogging for 2+ years on http://spaces.live.com/laflour but decided to open the mirror blog for several reasons
1) I'm not really happy that "spaces" blog engine doesn't allow anonymous replies, and you need to have .NET passport for this
2) "spaces" has lack of support to host custom pages. Some times ago I was looking for the place to host my ".NET Tips and Tricks" project to get the feedback from developers and found that MSMVPS is hosted on community server which provides such functionality. I'd be glad to hear your feedback about ".NET Tips and Tricks"
So, ta & welcome :)
