Thanks I will bear that in mind.

high speed as in ADSL or T type connection?  I'm on ISDN at the
moment. (or is it ASDL - I can never remember which way round the S
and the D go!!)

Do you know if there are things I could do to avoid/lessen the
quarantine?    - or where I could find out this kind of thing.

I'm in the UK at the moment, and to be totally honest I've only just
started thinking about doing this.  So I have no visa or anything at
the moment.  Somebody mentioned that they had recently been to a
meeting where people were trying to encourage people from here to
emigrate to Canada.  I wasn't at the meeting and I need to find out a
bit more about what went on there.

Is canada heading for the same recession as USA?

Do you recommend any other areas that is close to good
skiing/snowboarding that maybe isn't quite as popular as Whistler.
