When I saw freeforums.org offering free forum hosting I got an idea to set up a forum related to this blog. I was planning that forum to have discussions related to working abroad as an IT professional. Well, not too big target group...
That was the first problem. I did not want to spam all around about this forum so I decided to start slowly. However, spammers were fast and because I had one area open for guest postings, my time was consumed by administrative tasks. Cleaning up porn adverts was not that fun so disabled guest posting. This basically made that forum dead as very few registered.
The final nail in the coffin was maintenance work from freeforums.org which reverted my forums state to weeks old. Not very nice, but I did not feel like contacting them as I was already tired with this so I disabled the forum. Anyways, it was nice and free experiment to try out.

This week has been really warm. Every day has been over 35 degrees and most likely 40 is reached couple times. Luckily I work in an air-conditioned office but outside is almost unbearable for me. Luckily next weeks starts with more reasonable temperature forecasts.
One of my favorite blogs has a good set of tips for relocation and job searching. Take a look: The Technobedouin Manual: Job hunting abroad
