The problem is that this web page is setup so people can find a
consultant near them.  It's sorted by country to make it easy for

Oh, I don't care.  I can't be bothered to argue this, as in the end it
really doesn't matter to me.  The only person that may be affected by
having a non-country section is you, and you seem happy with this
arrangement, so what the hell.

I've added a section called "Willing to relocate".  I've taken the
liberty of changing your address to "Somewhere on Earth", as that is at
least more accurate that "Somewhere in Europe" considering that you list
Australia and New Zealang as potential future addresses.  That and it
makes my day a little bit more surreal.

I've also taken the liberty of copying this to debian-consult so I don't
have to repeat myself there...

I suppose that "Willing to relocate" will now have to be translated into
the various languages we support.  (Translators?)

Incidentally you are Consultant number 94.  And now our consultants hail
from 25 different fixed countries, and one who wanders the globe. 8)
