Hi Nolan,

Would it be possible for forum members to indicate as to where they stay or where they are planning to stay next to their user name? so when you send a post the people on the other side will see where you are in NZ, perhaps even as to where you are in SA will also be nice?

Maar net 'n voorstel?

If all were good online members they would tell us just that and more in the Howsit section where you introduce yourself.  Not a bad idea though adding it to your signature, but then again that is personal to everyone.  We are staying these last few months in Pretoria but I work in Jhb, Bryanston.
Auckland NZ, Howick

We're stuck in Jhb until next week Thursday :)
Then we'll be in Auckland for a couple months or so to look for jobs all over NZ. Then we plan to be in Wellington if no jobs are found yet and to concentrate on finding work there.

Hi Guys,
I'm not scared to say where I live. It's always been part of my signature at the bottom.
I am in Rotorua. In mid August we'll be here 2 years. Cheers, SAKB.
