How did you find this forum?

The purpose of this thread is to collect a bit of information from you about how you found this site. If you've just arrived please post your introduction in a separate thread - replies on this thread should just tell us a little bit about how you found us.

For example - did you find this site via a google search? If so, what were your search terms (we rank quite highly in google these days and it is interesting to see how many people find us using a variety of search terms!)

Did you see a flyer somewhere? If so, where was it?

Were you told it about it by friends or collegues? Did someone send you a link to a thread, and you explored the forum a bit and decided that you liked it?

Maybe you got given the link from a relocation company or company information pack, if so - which company was it?

Word is spreading and the forum is growing rapidly - so I'm just trying to build up a picture of how people are finding our little community!

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!

What is LOL in German? In French it is MDR (mort de rire)?

I love that term 'extwats' - brilliant! Thanks.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I followed a link from a thread at vBulletin.org. There was a note there that the owner of this site had recently passed away. He was the author of a modification for vBulletin software that made it easier to ban spammers from forums like these, and I was there looking for updates to his code. I have read through the memorial thread, and he seems to have been quite an extraordinary person.
