    Your first post claim is false. You claim SP is not free. It is free. You use the definative statement which means all 57 million members pay to use the SP everytime they go there. False. Some may pay something sometimes. See Chillin's post. He knows how to write without forgeting high school English classes where we learn not to use definative statements unless there is proof available.

    Your answer to my rebuttal is the same. You need to bone up on writing a claim that might be true instead of false. Other posters will read what is written here and possibly be misled by your lack of better writing skills thinking you're correct instead of wrong.

    Maybe you should start grading our posts.  I know mine are F-  HAHAHAHAHA

  2. FYI. Just want to share our experience with a ceiling repair. We have a textured plastered ceiling. It developed about a three foot crack. Tapping around the crack, a section, 2 by 3 foot, came down.  When the repair person inspected the area, they said the cement was not sealed or the sealer dried out. They inspected the whole ceiling, tapping to see if the plaster was attached everywhere.  They found a couple of small areas that was not attached and easily repaired them.  They said if they found too many or too large of an area, they would have to remove all of the plaster.  For us, everything work out fine. I am so happy that they check the whole ceiling before they started.

    Like I said, we don't have Telmex.  But I put 200p on my Telcel phone yesterday and there was no fee.  My PayPal showed a debit of 200p.

    Does CFE accept foreign credit cards?

    All Day, just to verify. You used PayPal with this service?  That may be worth a few pesos to be able to use a foreign credit card because some utilities don't accept the foreign credit cards.

    For those who are interested, here's a site to to pay for your cellphone, telephone and CFE bills and other services.


    They don't seem to charge a commission for Telcel payments.  Our CFE bill is 46p (we have solar) and they charge a 6p commission.  I don't know if higher bills are charged higher commissions.  We don't have Telmex so I don't know if they charge a commission for that service.

    They link to PayPal and credit cards.

    FYI the black letters on colored background is harder for some people to read.

  5. I went with the expensive option.  After my cataract surgery, one eye for near and the other for distance, I bought a pair of transition bi-focal. One lens clear and other for distance, improved reading and sunglasses when needed.  All in one pair of glasses.  I know most don't all of that.  I only use them for reading smaller print and outside for the sunglasses and protection from something blowing into the eyes.

    One thing it also help me while driving is making sure the windshield is clean.  IMO dust on the windshield makes the glare worse.  I use the windshield washer a lot.

    I've had Ilox hooked up for about a week now.  I've run several speed tests each day using Fast.com, Speedtest.net and Speedof.me.  It's pretty consistent.  I'm getting 38.5 Mbps download, and 8.75 Mbps upload.  Much better than my old Telmex connection!  I'm very happy with Ilox so far.

    Glad to hear that you are happy with it.

    They all are; traffic changes constantly. Do them several times and see what averages out. Also keep in mind that you will generally get a better result the second and third time, because some of the tests don't clear their own memory "cache" between tests, meaning some of the details are already on your computer and don't need to be loaded again.

    Those were averages. I know better than run one test.

    Is that the ILOX installer or the Security camera system installer ? - cold you  clarify

    ( by the way, the security camera system does have a static IP address.)


    Is your camera connected by Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable. If it Wi-Fi, you would need to change the Wi-Fi name and password in your camera software.

    If you would need someone on-site, it would be camera installer or someone else with computer experience. Possible all it is changing the settings of the camera software settings.

    To continue with my answer to the OP, to which your question is now an adjunct: Use a test like speedof.me, which uses no Java or other resource-saddling animation, and therefore is a clean test, and two: browser pages are slow because of the advertising, the tracking, and a myriad of other things, and is not a bottleneck for speed tests. Finally, the longer the test, the less interference and the more realistic the results.

    I was just wondering because I used speedof.me with three different browsers and previously posted the speeds. Which is right?

    That basura you're talking about are people trying to help or people trying to enjoy themselves within the subject matter. 

    Think about it.  A guy OPs asking for something, he comes to us asking for something.  Then he doesn't get what he wants.  So anyone along the way who couldn't give him what he wanted becomes garbage.  Well done mama's boy!

    So is anyone thrilled with Ilox? File download speeds are great; but i find just surfing the web is poor.

    Ok, let me give the OP a suggestion.  Have someone on-site investigate the problem instead of everyone in the chat room guessing.

    Yes, I can tell from your 3-10 word posts that you don't have a long attention span 🙂 At least you don't go on ad nauseaum for half a page, like some do.

    I spell and type so slow that most of time I either forget and loss interest with what I was going to post.  HAHAHA
