  1. Last Saturday I went online to get an appointment to be vaxed  In Laredo Texas I had the choice of Pfizer,  Moderna or J&J I choose J&J.  
    Tuesday I drove to Laredo crossing at Colombia.. At the border I showed my Canadian passport I was asked the purpose of my visit to the US   I replied medical appointment, he said have a good day sir...  total time stopped at the US border 2 mins 

    My appointment was for 10am Wednesday morning.. had to wait awhile for the vaccine to be delivered, the only ID  I showed them was my Mexican permanent resident card.. which they said was fine, all you require is a government issued photo ID, a drivers license is fine. It was around 10.45 I got the shot, no pain easy peasy... The people at the pharmacy were great.. they said they have several Canadians come there for the shot.. Spent the rest of Wednesday shopping, drove back today. While shopping I I noticed signs at several pharmacies saying   “ Vaccine available here, walk in’s welcome”   But if I was driving that far I would schedule an appointment and print off the form.. just in case the guy at the border wants to see it...

    Despite what a certain person who posts to everything on this board  the border is open... And I was not alone so I do have a witness I also know a couple of Canadians who have driven back to Canada in the last couple of weeks with no issues at the US border.

  2. Does anyone have a phone number for the CBX bridge as I have been unable to find one.   I would like to ask if Canadians can cross the bridge in to the US.. I’ve LOST the name of the person on this board who keeps posting Canadians can’t cross in the US .,but I personally know people who have driven across at Laredo as late as last weekend on there way to Canada, but before I fly to Tijuana and walk over the bridge  to get vaxed I word like to find out if we can cross or not

    We are on our way to Dallas tomorrow morning to get our Johnson and Johnson one dose vax. We are Canadians and Texas has zero problem proving vax to foreigners. Good luck everyone.

     😊

    Would you mind telling us where in Dallas you are getting the vaccine, and is there anyone we can call to make an appointment..

    It's possible.  If you have a 150Mbps plan from ILOX, let's say, and you're getting Wi-fi speeds of around 120-130Mbps, it will be faster because one of the ports on the two port ILOX modem is only a 10/100 Ethernet port.  I found this out the hard way.

    Yes having high speed internet is a different ball game..

    I have tested a Firestick 4K on both WiFi and ethernet cable fed from a router (not the Ilox modem); WiFi performs a little better on a speedtest. Now that Ilox seems to be more stable in the last few months I am using Wifi from a router without any buffering.

    What kind of adapter and where did you purchase it from to try an Ethernet cable on your firesstick ?

    An Ethernet cable gives you a stable signal.. If you have fiber using an Ethernet cable is not as critical as using it with low speed internet  Firesticks and android boxes don’t like internet speed to bounce around.

  7. To answer Levy’s question:   If you buy an overpriced firestick from someone who will tell you it works great you will find out that it doesn’t unless you constantly work on it.. ,If you want free TV and don’t get to frustrated with it then it will work for you. 

    if you buy from Amazon or somewhere like you will get a firesttick that’s programmed from the factory, if you want live TV that will work consistently then you will have to purchase a subscription...  

    Again you need good internet.

  8. The apps on a modified firestick come and go.. they ,might work today or they might not.. So you then have to reload them yourself or pay someone to do it for you. The guys selling firesticks are charging double the purchase price and trying to justify it by telling you we have programmed it for you.. The programs are free if you do it yourself.. If you get a firestick you do need to know how to find the apps and load them or you will constantly paying for someone to fix it for you.    And of course you need decent internet speed.
