I was doing a Google search on "Zurich cost-of-living" and hit this forum on the 7th or 8th page... Looks like a great place to be!

Re: How did you find this forum?

I was trying to find out if there was still this old regulation by Swisscom regarding expats having to leave a deposit for a fixed line, and with the "+"B-permit" +switzerland" argument I found a link to a thread. Lucky I did !

great description

Now, would it be the self-loving version or would you say the Wiki reference to personality disorder would more befit the "list"?

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found it by accident when i was searching for something else in Google. Once I'd had a look around, I decided to return and now I've registered.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found you via a link on Britshop, which I found via Carmen et al. in expats yahoo group. So expats did educate me in something apart from special offers at Migros!

Re: How did you find this forum?

Originally through a poster and flyer at work, which I chose to ignore, than a friend told me I should have a look see. I did, and the rest is current affairs (it will become history when I have been here a while)
