I have toyed with the idea for many years, but due to just having been laid off I am seriously considering it now. I have discussed the idea with the wife and kids and they seem open to a little adventure as well. I would like to get a little input from others on a couple of topics - jobs, and schools.
Regarding jobs, I'm a Unix/Linux geek with programming experience (mainly Perl/PHP). I've been a sysadmin for 10 years. Is there anyone else on the forum in this line of work in NH? I'd like to get an idea of what your experiences are like. Perhaps some company or location info as well, such as which areas have the best job market, what companies might be good to look at, etc.
Regarding schools, I have found some of the more highly rated schools around Amherst and Bedford. What are your impressions of these areas? Are their other areas as good? What's the traffic like? If I wanted to have a commute of no more than 30 minutes would it be feasible from these areas?
I appreciate any insight you guys can give me. Thanks
