  1. People don't complain about it because they didn't vote for him although those will shout louder ofcourse, but actually most of those people also all agree this was highly necessary. But the main reason people complain (and not only those who didn't vote for AMLO but also those who did vote for him) is the fact there is zero communication. First of all they simply denied there were shortages and that most gasolineras had gasoline, until a few days ago they finally told they were wrong about it. ok you admit you were wrong, but then at least try to resolve the problem but they don't. They don't have any idea about how much time this situation will continue to take, they only repeat don't panic. Why they don't send more gastrucks to lower the shortages etc etc? Get some trucks from states with no shortages, rent trucks or whatever. There simply doesn't arrive enough gasoline to Guadalajara. 15 million liters is needed every day, they knew this since the beginning. Only about the half is arriving, ofcourse people start panicking, the situation is getting worse every day. There was already one week shortage in several states when the shortage also started in Guadalajara last weekend. And in that moment the responsible secretary of energy starts to twitter about a soccer game... I mean WTF?!?!?! Instead she should be working her ### off to get those shortages somehow resolved. Of course people start to complain. Of the 6 gas stations around me and where i pass to the school of my children me only one has gasoline all day and that line is enormous, I don't even bother losing hours of my time there. All others are closed. Sometimes other gas stations get gas but it gets empty within 2 hours. A teacher of my children was waiting in line for 5 hours last night to get his car filled up and arrived to the school totally exhausted. The main issue the people are complaining is the bad communication and even after two weeks the situation is getting only worse and no end is in sight.

    Solar hot water heaters

    I use Solaris for many years now and totally happy with it. One side note though with solar heaters, buy a bigger one then recommended. So if you need one for 2 people, buy one for 4 or 6 people for example. Otherwise you might run out of hot water now and then. When you have a bigger one you hardly ever run out of hot water.

    New Internet service

    Old news yes, they also use Telmex wiring so basically you still pay to Slim. It is exactly the same service as infinitum just with other name and offered by Sky who in their turn pay to Telmex to use the infrastructure. Even Telmex workers will come in some cases over to your place to do the wiring.

    ILOX install

    The wire of axtel from the pole to the modem is fiber too. One string is metal to pull, the other is fiber. There are a bunch hanging in my street of old connections and you can clearly see the fibers. Also with remodeling of my house I had to cut the cable and could see the fiber. They had to come over to install a new fiber. Axtel, totalplay and ilox all use fiber to the modem. Telmex I'm not sure up to where.

    ILOX install

    The advertised speed will be 100mbps up/down. I have the same one of axtel. It has fiber all the way to the modem. Ilox will be the same with fiber till the modem.

    TAR Airlines

    If I remember correctly the international waiting room expanded to this old terminal 2 building now but it is all part of the same terminal now. On the other news, new direct destinations from gdl to Albuquerque and Charlotte, NC are being added in November by Volaris and also Charlotte by American Airlines from January (seasonal)

    Only when trees falls on those cables and take them down, otherwise no affects at all ofcourse.
  10. 2. Same account. Just try to log in, and you'll know right? 3. Not sure if us card works. Mexican debit card should work, no pin required. I would say again, just try. 4/6. Not sure why you want to ship it to DHL office unless you work there? Often it isn't shipped by DHL but an other transporter. So shipping it to DHL seems unlogic. 5/7. Shipping cost and time depends on the item, you can choose the shipping method when ordering and you'll see the total cost and time before you confirm the order.
  11. Megacable is not Izzi. Both are seperate companies and competition to eachother.

    Tiling roof

    I've got tiled my roof too. The first part about 10 years ago and still no leakage and no maintenance needed. Other part of the roof two years ago and also no problems with the rain. I will never choose anything else then tiles.

    Induction Range

    I have an induction cooktop and didn't notice a much higher electrity bill. It is somewhere arround de 800 pesos per 2 months but most of it is because heavy computer use and some older refrigerator. An induction cooktop use way less electricity then normal electric cooktop as it heats way more efficient and much much faster. I'm pretty sure i spend less money then when i was still using a gas cooktop.
