  1. Anyone use the Zen water system (zenwatersystems.com), similar to the Berkey, much less cost, and does not leak, as Berkeys tend to do? They have great reviews in the US.
  2. I use Windflix, and it has a special server just for Netflix. I got a lifetime subscription for $40, and often there are sales through www.Stacksocial.com. Many ssrvers to choose from, easy interface, very pleased all around. Www.windflix.com. It gets very reviews from techies.
  3. Wow, sorry! He has been the faithful driver for me and a number of other people.
  4. I use Mattias, he has always been reliable (at 4 AM), and his fee to the airport from Ajijic is $400. His cell is 331.333.5961. Speaks a little English, clean car, good driver.
  5. The market also reacted to raising the interest rate. Every time the peso is at 20 or more, the central bank of MX will go into the derivative markets and pledge assets, or raise rates. Bandaids. Dangerous.
  6. Probably nobody. The attitude of many of the drivers here is abysmal.
  7. I am on EC, between E.Zapata, and V. Carranza. Telecable is fine, but has been a little slower than usual this afternoon.
  8. I can assist by giving you a couple of names NOT to use, through personal experience. PM me if you want to know who to avoid.
  9. I insisted that they give me an Arris modem. The Hitrons are crap modems, very poor strength in the signal. The Arris is much better.
  10. Mike, there is a US plated Rav 4 for sale on the Beg, Borrow Chapala FB page, and also a trailer. You should sign up for that group.
  11. Honing realign the tiny burrs on the blade, put all those back in place. SHARPENING actually removes a tiny bit of edge off the blade, to make a NEW EDGE. Honing will keep your blade sharp for a while, but once a year or so, most good blades will need actual sharpening.
  12. I don't know what that icky, slimy black stuff is, but I find it in all my aerators (sinks, shower, laundry) when I clean them every 3 weeks or so. I think it is algae that grows in the tinaco. If you get some of those bleach tabs and get someone to throw them in every month or so, they should clear it out. Or at least, that is what I heard.
  13. More Liana, no one think that is a truly viable minimum wage. However, its funtion as a minimum wage is secondary in many ways to its function as qualification for several visas and for fines, and that is the context of this post. Perhaps the minimum wage should be eliminated as a yardstick for other functions
  14. I get Schwab to take it out of my brokerage cash account, talk to their FOREX department, pay the $25 wire fee, and they buy me pesos and then wire it to my Multiva account at a FAR better exchange rate than the bank would give me. If your bank will take peso deposits by wire, and you have a similar investment acct. in the US, this would save you a lot of money vs. the bank exchange rate, and you would circumvent that whole hassle.
  15. I like the plastic Walmart bags, because I use them for scooping and disposing of kitty poop.
