Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:
It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.
Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.
While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.
While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper
I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Thanks, guys, but I didn't even notice it when I took the survey in 2009. I think it was Feiren who first mentioned it on the board: http://forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.ph ... 3#p1071363
--Old Louisiana Civil Code Article 2451, "Sale of a Hope"
It also happens sometimes that an uncertain hope is sold; as the fisher sells a haul of his net before he throws it. . . .
--John Heywood (1497–1580)
Let the world slide, let the world go;
A fig for care, and a fig for woe!
If I can't pay, why, I can owe,
And death makes equal the high and low.

Forty pages and it seems a good time to wrap part 1 up. Part 2 here: viewtopic.php?p=1405603
Reminders of their greatness stand grim and barren Alone and useless over vast expanses The entirety of their race was brainwashed by scare tactics Unable to see any truth under a veil of distraction

You can hide all windows, revealing only what's on the computer desktop, with one keystroke: Windows key+D in Windows, F11 on Macs (or, on recent Mac laptops, Command+F3; Command is the key with the cloverleaf logo). That's great when you want examine or delete something you've just downloaded to the desktop, for example. Press the keystroke again to return to what you were doing.
