Living In Utah

We are officially living in Utah now. We managed to get everything unloaded from our two PODS, with some help of course, and have been unpacking like crazy.

For the most part things have gone reasonably smooth. That said, I don’t want to move again for a very long time, or ever. It was an amazing amount of work to empty out a house after living in it for 8 years. You never know how much stuff you have until you have to pack it all and move it almost 700 miles.

I’m also trying to scope out the tech scene here. The new house is in Sandy so I’m mostly looking at groups in the Salt Lake City area, but Provo is only about 30 minutes to the south so I’d may look for groups there as well. If you have any suggestions on tech oriented groups/meetings/conferences/etc in the Salt Lake City/Provo region let me know.

Anyone know of an equivalent to Fry’s in the area? While there were two Fry’s stores in the Sacramento region, there none in Utah.

As someone who married a girl from Sac, I have much lamented the complete lack of anything in Utah even remotely close to the grandeur of Fry’s Electronics. Best Buy is about as close as you’re going to get. Sorry.

FWIW, there are some pretty good groups around here, from what I’ve heard. There is the Utah PHP Users’ group:

You can also check out the page for Provo Linux Users’ Group, which has links to just about every other major group in the state:

Dude! No wonder you missed the last demolition party. I checked your blog before I sent you the invite, but I guess I must have missed this post.

So nothing equivalent to Fry’s, eh? The *really* important question is, do they have a Mongolian BBQ anywhere nearby?
