Nice looking flag ain't it?!
I lived in Montreal, but the separatists had managed to totally screw up the economy to the point where the best salary offer I got as an engineer was 20% below what I'd been making five years previously. Hmm. An insulting pittance in Quebec, or bongo bucks Stateside? Think, think.

Anyway, it's part of my mission here to inform USAians that no, contrary to what they hear from various mouthpieces, the Canadian health care system was not collapsing, yes, we have no deficit, no, gun control doesn't mean criminals are jacking us at will, and that despite Pat Buchanan caliing us Soviet Canuckistan we actually had it pretty good (modulo Blacque Jacques Parizeau and his crowd).

On the other hand, DSP gigs aren't real thick on the ground in the Great White North. They're not terribly common here either outside the defence industry, but I've been able to build a nice little niche.

And my sister keeps me in 22 Minutes tapes.

Anyway, if the mods want to throw this to Everything Else under Frozen Arctic Wasteland...


Francois.

Actually, it's more like "Off Topic."

I love Canada, since it's the land that gave us Joni Mitchell and Terrence & Philip.

For those not familiar, 'This Hour Has 22 Minutes' is a news and political satire show done by our national TV CBC.

Excellent show.

Not to mention Pamela Anderson and Wanye and Schuster.

Mrs. Elvis Costello and the largest slab of ham in the Western Hemisphere? I'll try to forgive you for them; Joni makes up for a lot.

Sy, except for her one album, i like Diana Krall.

And then there is Shania Twain, Alanis Moriset, The Guess Who, KD Lang

And Mr. Kirk was the harbinger of all the Star Treks.... so he is more than just himself (ie a goof)

Live Long & Prosper
