"So if you happen to be one of the many who are either fearing or recovering from a layoff from HP, Yahoo!, Nvidia, or some other struggling tech firm, you might want to point Google Maps towards Kings Langley, Hertfordshire UK, Imagination's home. We hear that there are still tickets available for Jack and the Beanstalk in nearby Stevenage - it's "Fee-Fi-Fo-Fun!""
You'd be better off checking out the Red Lion in the Old Town - it's about the only place worth going to in Stevenage.
Alternatively, just jump on a train into London and go somewhere that isn't utterly shit - I've lived in Hertfordshire for five years and have yet to find anywhere worthwhile to hang out that, er, isn't in the Big Smoke.
Hope that helps any budding API engineers and graphics programmers looking at relocating!
