    Mexico and China - the future is knocking

    I'm afraid that you don't have the differences between the REAL GDP and the NOMINAL GDP quite correct. The key isn't monies sent or not sent offshore; it is price changes, in almost all cases dues to inflation . https://www.cliffsnotes.com/study-guides/economics/gdp-inflation-and-unemployment/nominal-gdp-real-gdp-and-price-level

    Thanks Tom (For your last posting and everything you have done before it.) Shows ya what too much education and lack of info can do to a logical conclusion based upon them and little else. My bad. However, those naysayers still have the opportunity to join the original group and without what they saw as the risk of 'paying up front in Mexico, you i*i*t!' which may or may not have discouraged others from enrolling and possibly moving us closer to your achieved goal earlier than now.
  15. Many years ago (1975), I lived in Harlingen. Many friends crossed at Brownsville on their way to Monterey. I always went to Nuevo Progreso. The Brownsville crossing wasn't as hectic then as it is now, but, it was far from quick. https://www.google.com/search?pws=0&gl=us&q=nuevo+progreso+border+crossing&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiXp7K2u93bAhVOKawKHeVVD7gQ1QIIxAEoBA&biw=1280&bih=588

    I believe the triple package allows for 2 phone lines, the 2nd being either an MX, USA or CN # https://www.ilox.mx/iloxhogar/index.php/paquetes/14-servicios/68-triples2 For me, the $1209 MX/month package gives me 300 Mbps instead of less than 5 and without being offline almost 50% of the time plus that 2nd line. The phone service will be about the same as will be the Ilox TV compared to the Dish MX I presently have for my MX family. My increase cost would be $210 MX/month. Based on my Expedia cable service NOB, on which I get a price break because it is in every apartment in the condo building, I couldn't get 100 Mbps for t$60 USD per month.

    Unfortunately, it seems that a goodly number of the original 'pledgers' live in gated communities and cannot fulfill their initial pledge. Too bad, but let the rest of us keep on with the project.

    A while back, I stated elsewhere that i would not move here today because of the internet limitations. My daughter and her husband are both work-from-home computer professionals, systems and security. When they visit, they can't ever stay more than a few days since their job 3 requires or 4 times a week internet conference calls. They tell me even 50 Mbps is a bare minimum for them. It mightn't be our generation, but the one just behind us, surely the one behind them, will never consider buying a home here. Besides an increase in our home values, high speed fiber optic internet service would also mean quicker sales should the need for us to move on appear. If you have the cash available for a pre investment in a service you will be happy you have, this is a no-brainer. Your return for the loss of a few pesos interest over the next several months is a small price to pay for the availability of this service, not to mention the increased speed over your lifetime of using the service, nor to mention the increase in value and salability of your home.

    For specifics, cost per month/annum, etc. contact Ajijic Realty or Lake Chapala Realty. They will also prepare forms for you and walk you thru entire process. All you will need to do is pay the money at Bancomer and sign the forms. Some new info: The telephone and internet service only has been added to their offering. For the early subscribers, the benefit is that the 50 Mbps service will be 75 Mbps for the first year, and will continue at that increased rate as long as you are a subscriber and agree to a monthly credit card billing after your first year. The same holds true for the 250/300 Mbps service. Also, Ilox has added Chapala to their proposed services. A clarification: The number of advance subscribers needed is fluid. The money amount is not. It is three million pesos, or about $150000 USD. At the internet, telephone and tv service, that;s about 300 subscribers. At the higher speed package, it is closer to 200. With the lowest cost package, it will be closer to 400. It is unfortunate that the restrictions for gated communities exist, but that is just the way it is. This is a phenomenal great service we have been given the opportunity to enjoy. Let's get to it to reach that MX $ amount so that Ilox can get to work on this project.
  21. Computer Guy said: "This is a horrifying state of affairs, because MS has put out a lot of crappy updates in the last couple of months that have crippled and/or destroyed the operating system, requiring complete new installations of W10." After a year, for the last several months, my screen shows 'Activate Windows Go to settings to activate Windows,' but cannot activate. Settings shows. 'Windows not activated. Product ID 00331-10000-00001-AA038 Product key xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-T836X We can't activate Windows on this device as we can't connect to your organization's activation server. Make sure you're connected to your organization's network and try again. If you continue to have problems with activation, contact your organization's support person. Error code 0x8007232B' When I click on enter Product key, this is the message. 'Your product key should be in an e-mail from whoever sold or distributed Windows to you, or on the box the Windows DVD or USB came in. ' Since I never received either of them, I can't enter Legal Product Key. Is this the result of one of those Windows 10 upgrades you mention?
