    I am starting to seriously consider moving to Australia at the end of the next month.

    Having lived in Sydney before, I am looking at Melbourne as an option, or Adelaide.

    Heh, its probably going to be Melbourne, if I make the move, as I have some family relatives there who can put me up for a couple of weeks. IIRC the Australian tax year ends on June 30th after which there is another mini spike of employment hiring in July, or thats what I remember from when I was last in Australia 2003 - 2005. Is this (still) true?

    I know, mate. I wasn't trying to be 'smart' or funny or anything when I made that comment.

    On a more serious note, I'm not a fan of the GC. I haven't lived there or anything so maybe I got the wrong impression, but I did spend a couple of days there when travelling up the East coast, and I couldn't get out of the place fast enough.

    Was just looking through the pockets in my jeans from the other night. Just found a card from a pub I was at with the title - 'So you've been asked to our leave our premises:'

    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    umm let me see. it's double sided

    underneath the title it says

    You may have been rejected or refused entry to our premises if you have been:
    - intoxicated
    - violent
    - quarrelsome
    - disorderly
    - behaving in an offensive way

    and some other stuff like that. the other side was a bit mean i thought

    You must leave the venue immediately
    You must leave the vicinity of the premises immediately
    You cannot return for at least 24 hours
    You cannot return to the vicinity for at least 6 hours

    then some warnings about fines and failure to comply.

    I remember trying to get back in 20 minutes later, telling the bouncer that 'oh that other guy who was dressed and looked like me? Nah he's gone home, I'm new here.'

    Just go back and ask them what it's all about.. Did you get kicked out for example just because you were white/black?
