  1. It sure does. Back to Title Reading 101 for me.
  2. You didn't mention nationally, but if this helps, I renewed my U.S. passport one year ago, January 2021. I went to the U.S. embassy in Guadalajara with my old passport, my Mexico papers (which I don't think I needed), the DS-82 form, and a new photo. The photos have different size requirements than photos used for Mexican ID stuff, so you need to let the photo place know. Anyway, it went smoothly and the embassy mailed me the new passport a couple of weeks later. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/have-passport/renew.html https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/outside-us.html
  3. I use an app on my phone named Waze. I use it for driving directions, which you probably don't need. But I do, in Guadalajara at least. Anyway, it announces when a speed camera is ahead. Pretty nice, although in the city traffic I'm not sure how anyone manages to go over the limit.
  4. Just a tech tip: When you post a url like the one above, your'e posting tokens embedded in the url that may (not necessarily, though) identify you personally. They're used by email campaigns to track various aspects of the campaign such as number of opens, etc. Maybe you don't have the same level of concern as me, but if you do, all you need to do is remove everything from the question mark onwards, like so: https://time.com/6138566/pandemic-of-unvaccinated/ That's it. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
  5. I used to fill the gas tank (120 liters) every couple of months at about 800 pesos a fill. A few years back I bought a solar water heater with more capacity then we usually need (but just to be sure). That and the other plumbing parts cost about 10k pesos total. A friend of mine and I did the installation and since then, I fill the gas tank maybe once a year, if that. The solar heater has been the best thing that we've done to the house. I love it.
  6. Tech Tip: In this case at least (not in all situations), you can enter some made-up email address and then read the article. This works because they let you read without verifying the email. If you need a temporary email address (i.e. a throw away address), you can use WhateverYouWant@mailinator.com - Then you can go to mailinator.com, enter the email name you chose and read the message. The mailinator thing doesn't work everywhere (such as the epoch times) because they know these are throw away email addresses and disallow them. But it does work in a lot of situations. Don't use for anything confidential though; these throw aways can be read by anyone.
  7. Here's a topic that might help. There's quite a few tips. Also, you can search these forums, maybe find some others.
  8. Easy enough (for moderators I mean) to find out who removed a post. Just need to check the logs.
  9. Yeah, that info is pretty old. Telcel might have dropped that service or maybe you have to get them to activate it for the number. I tried it just now to my phone and the email bounced with "The user is not okay"
  10. This page has an entry for Telcel. https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17056/~/list-of-mobile-carrier-gateway-addresses
  11. No need to subscribe to read any articles. Read all you want. Disable Javascript for the site. Or, you can delete the site cookies when you reach the limit. These are general tips. They work on lots of sites, but not all.
  12. I've been using OFX (formerly Forex) for years now. They have good rates and don't charge anything if you move more than a certain amount. From what I've read on this thread, it's not as fast as Wise, but that's okay for me. It usually takes about a week.
  13. You can attach a file by clicking the choose files link when starting a topic. Or you can drag the file from its folder into that bottom zone.
  14. I'll try to start a new pm. On the one which I replied, I just noticed that it says you have left the conversation. I don't know how that happens, but I'll start a new one and leave my phone number. Hopefully that works.
