A possible move...

My family is thinking about moving to Austin, Texas. A few of us are losing our jobs and a few of us just need a change. My son hates the idea. I am completely on board as I have never liked Tennessee, but I have my doubts in relation to jobs, cost of living, etc. It is much cheaper to live in TN but the job market is awful.

If you live in Austin (or any other part of TX), could you take a moment to fill me in on the cost of living, jobs, etc? I am a manager for a call center and would seek similar employment.

If you live in other parts of the south (AL, GA, KY), could you please do the same. I want to stay in this part of the country, just want to make the right decision. You guys are the best!

Disclaimer: I don't live in Texas. But, if I did, Austin is the best place, in my opinion. The university is there, it's the most liberal city, strong high tech industries (Dell computer for instance), probably more expensive than TN, but pays better also, and not as expensive as most big cities. It's kinda pretty, lots to do.
