  1. Flashing yes, and as I pointed out in an earlier post, that has made it difficult for people like me coming up or down the streets, because unlike most other lights it seems to be ignored by many, who apparently were never taught what a flashing yellow light means. And as you say, Panino's. I was saying two things: this is obviously manipulation, not failure, and the traffic in the area was terrible before this happened.
  2. The traffic was not already low. Somebody may have experienced a break in the flow, that's all. And the lights were not simply turned off. The lights at Soriana are off, but not the lights at the gas station in Chapala or at the main intersection. The lights are on in front of Fenix and they are on at the Farmacia Guadalajara. This is manual manipulation, not some failure of the system. (The barriers at Walmart are up again and appear only to be down when unauthorized persons move them. Traffic runs smoother when the little lady transito there is not there.)
  3. Sorry, TelZ4 was yesterday about the fire. Thanks for the correction. Edited. Still, Angus, what is up?
  4. I heard the entrance that opened yesterday, at the foot of the libramiento, closed up again almost immediately, but I haven't been by.
  5. There are multiple reports of Telmex being down in various areas, and you are saying no it's not? Can't wait to get out of here? Edited.
  6. They of course did that once before, and then put the barrier back again.
  7. Every time a carretera light goes out or goes into flashing mode, traffic improves immensely. This has happened many times during holiday weekends, and instead of nasty snarls, we get through town a lot quicker and with less grief. Right now it's tricky at Allen W. Lloyd for those trying to get out or across, because for some reason drivers are not paying attention there.
  8. It's pretty bad. Interestingly, the palapa roof did not all burn, but it's going to be a while.
  9. Two things: First, this is a board for discussion and help concerning living in Mexico. Second, it is not a repository for personal vitriol, hate, politics and personal rants. Actually, one more thing: as a mere member here, I shouldn't have to be the one pointing this out.
  10. It's only a midterm. Sure he could lose his majority, but I'm wondering exactly which political party will do any better, particularly while he remains Presidente.
  11. When I checked, Amazon ships those right to here for $7.46 with no import fees.
  12. The price of a new Firestick is about $50 US, unless you get it on sale. That's $1,000 pesos. The other thousand pesos is for Rich's hard work and experience dealing with myriad numbers of apps that don't work or are flakey or have just disappeared, establishing proper links to robust servers that have been around long term. He's done all the work so that you don't have to. I personally think that's worth 50 bucks. He also spends an hour or two showing you how to navigate, which is really worth it to the technically unmotivated.
  13. Conspiracy and anti-science mentality is raging like the pandemia itself. Look at the number of people who don't believe in getting vaccinated for anything. I'd like to see what they were doing in public school getting their shots, before they got swayed by fools on the Internet.
  14. I think it's a bit generalized and unfocused to say be careful of violence here. Pretty much every death and attempt has been linked to cartels and gangs in key cities and states, from what I read. These postings make it sound like it is dangerous to go outside during election hours. Typically not the time that these activities take place anyway.
  15. Regardless of his reasoning, talking about politics is not the same as talking politics, I would say.
  16. The "black box" advertised in the paper requires a monthly fee. I'm not into that. Instead, Rich Richie on this board offers tons of free TV and movie apps on a pre-programmed, technically reliable Firestick, one time cost of $2,000p.
  17. Well, that's an interesting comment. I'm certainly no expert, so I had to look it up. First off, it's Total DISSOLVED Solids. Second, "the test does not provide us insight into the specific water quality issues, such as Elevated Hardness, Salty Taste, or Corrosiveness." ( https://water-research.net/index.php/water-treatment/tools/total-dissolved-solids) So, is it a worthwhile test, I wonder.
  18. Of the handful of active members of this board, none apparently have pockets deep enough to want to be the guinea pig. Myself included.
  19. So typical: not including the year.
  20. There are different systems, depending on the age of the vehicle. Since we don't know the OPs car's age or reason, I couldn't say definitively. As I did say, I am not talking about keys with near field sensors, which is what you are referencing.
