Thanks, Roel. Couldn't have navigated that mess without you.

Glad I could help! But when we would ever cross paths, that will cost you at least 1 drink

No problem, Roel. If I am ever in Belgium, I'll make sure to buy you the finest can of Key Stone Light money can buy!

First of all, you'll be in Belgium, a country known for its rich beer culture, so serving an American beer would be committing sacrilege Secondly I don't drink alcohol, so I would have to refuse that can

lol I lived in several different spots in Europe over the past several years (UK, Switzerland, France, Austria) and they all mocked US beer, so I had to tease you a bit! But really, I can't blame them. Coincidentally, I also don't drink so we'll have to have a nice lemonade - my treat . Hope to be back in the EU soon. Love it it there. Thought about immigrating to Belgium as I speak French. Not so easy for a US person, though. Dare to dream...

I don't think Belgium is the place you want to be at this moment. Still no government (elections were more than 1 year ago) due to huge issues between the Dutch-speaking part (I'm one of them) and the French-speaking part. And we pay a lot of taxes (almost 50%), but our social security system is one of the best of the world (not like in USA where you need to be insured or you'll get no appropriate treatment in the hospital), but it definitely needs some changes, otherwise it will not survive.

Maybe you can come to Devoxx in November, I'm already registered

Yes, I know. That actually was a factor in not sending in the paper work for a residence visa - though there were other non-Belgium reasons.

Yes, the US system is a mess. We claim to be a democracy but in reality we are a Corporatocracy. It is really a sad state of affairs...I could go on and on. On a happier note, though, I would love to be in Belgium for Devoxx! That exchange rate, though...ouch.

Thanks. Yes that was definitely a factor in getting it done sooner rather than later.

Maybe that problem will solve itself if Greece does not get their (financial) problems sorted out, the Euro may get in trouble which will be a good thing for the exchange rate

Ha! Not to worry. The ECB will print the money to cover the Greek debt and you all in Europe will just pay even more taxes in the form of inflation (just like us) to finance it. Too many important and powerful people have too much to lose to let the Euro die.
