Hello Jeff and Welcome!
Regarding local developers, I'm coding in django & python lately (among other
activities). I also worked several years ago in bandwidth control ("traffic
shaping") over Linux, using in part "tc".
As you surely know there's quite a bit of IT around here (RIM, OpenText,
insurance companies etc).
Regarding other recommendations: no idea, I use Rogers, seemed a little less bad
than Bell, pick your poison. And regarding eating out, KW is a wasteland (the
only thing I miss from Toronto are their restaurants).

>Any other local developers?
>Any suggestions on local watering holes?
>Local geeking hot spots?
>Tips about ISPs?
>Which do you use, whats your opinion of them, who do you think I should avoid
>I'm coming from Vancouver and I've been on Shaw cable who are the best around.
>The alternative is Telus DSL.
>Telus complains if you go over on your usage and forwards DMCA complaints, Shaw
>never complained on any of the occasions when I went over my bandwidth allotment
>even when it was a significant overage (200-400%), and has yet to forward a DMCA
>Any other things I neglected to ask?
>I'll be busy moving in this weekend but hopefully I'll see some of you at some
>*waves* Nice to meet everyone.
>Looking forward to geeking with you,
