  1. Because, as I said a few minutes ago, it was posted in the Mexico General section last week and has been discussed ad nauseam already. It's still there.
  2. I think that was "sarcasm". You know, like some of our world leaders use.
  3. Edited by moderator for out of bounds personal attack.
  4. Excuse me, I'm becoming confused. Perhaps you bosses would kindly get together and let us know which one of you is the true oracle on the mount and the one whose direction we should follow with blind allegiance. We humbly await the decision. Thanks.
  5. Mercado Libre is the Latin American version of Ebay. Just google Mercado Libre Mexico and search for what you want. The vendors will be rated and will tell you what kind of payment they accept.
  6. In times of stress and anxiety I find an unpleasant side of myself coming to the fore. I become excessively controlling and have the overwhelming need to have things exactly the way I want. I sometimes even become a scold. In order to alleviate these symptoms, please, I ask you people to listen up: Grow up. Please. You are all bickering like children. I am too old to be fond of children. Except for Mexican kids, they're about the cutest people I've ever seen. Please do not challenge me, my thinking process or my facts. No, do not. I know what you're thinking, but no. This is a serious situation, do not make light of it. However, I do like a good joke. If you have one, please tell it in such a way that I do not feel guilty. I want you to tell me how and where to buy my food, what masks I should wear, and when; what personal habits and hobbies I should have; and what personality traits you find most appealing. And yet I do not. I sense some protests coming my way now, but please remember number 2 above. And while we're airing things out, I beg you, some of you people, learn how to spell. And for God's sake, when you're in a grocery store, please wear a mask; but above all do not cough directly on the shelf items! Yeah, gramps, you, talking to you. Thank you for your time, I feel better already.
  7. Would you care to share the names of those apps? I have multiple free ones but none are consistently reliable.
  8. Yeah, Kodi's got a lot of issues, navigation being one of them.
  9. Have you had reliable service with them? I see Firestick Tricks list them as an option. I 'm considering recommendations from them and Troypoint. Can you use Paypal with them? I'm a little leery of giving my credit card to some of these APK's.
  10. I'm looking for anyone who is using or has used the Firestick streaming service formerly provided by the late Derek Young, and is interested in selling a firestick they are no longer using; or, alternatively, would be willing to share the names of the apps he was using, both free and paid, so I can program my own. I'm interested mostly in live tv. You can respond here or PM me. Thanks.
  11. I've seen several articles about CV referencing this German risk assessment institute. The gist of it is that you can pretty much touch anything and if you wash/sanitize your hands before touching your face, mouth, eyes, ears and mucous areas, there will be no transmission. Of course, that last part is apparently the hard part. https://www.bfr.bund.de/en/can_the_new_type_of_coronavirus_be_transmitted_via_food_and_objects_-244090.html
  12. I've pretty much been living like a hermit for the past 2 weeks, but I get the impression that if I do go out and interact some people are expecting me to wear a mask. First question, is there anywhere around here to source a useful mask? Secondly, any opinions on the actual utility of various masks? Internet research backs up old information that I had that the only real protective mask is the n95 which protects against aerosol type small droplet spray and some or most bacteria/viruses and which we are asked to reserve for health care workers. Surgical and other more penetrable masks are only advised for people who are actually sick (protects others from large droplet coughing/sneezing) or those caring at home for someone (better than nothing?). Somewhat recommended for long periods in a close environment (planes, etc.), but not with a lot of reassurance, and not recommended for just walking down the street. Also, most people I see wearing them touch them, adjust them, and often pull them down to converse with store clerks etc. which supposedly negates there purpose. Is it mostly a feel good type of thing?
  13. The basic translation was given in the post above mod-3's.
  14. SoxFan would you be willing to share the name of the paid iptv that you are using? You can pm me if you prefer. Thanks.
  15. A version of this warning was posted on TOB a day or two ago and since then deemed most likely to be BS. There are tests that show CV can live for up to 3 days on surfaces, not 12 hours. Most viruses and bacteria thrive in warm conditions, that's why hospitals and medical facilities are kept so cold. Viruses spread in winter because everyone is inside together. When it gets warm people spend time outdoors, not so close, and more importantly, in the sun. UV kills viruses. The virus thrives in the human body which has a temperature of close to 100. To think an ambient temp of 85 will kill it makes little sense.
  16. The last few times I used the taxi stand there I noticed they had the same portable chip reader everyone uses sitting on the counter, but I was using cash so I didn't try it out.
  17. You can buy propafenona (propafenone/rythmol) at any farmacia without a prescription, if that works for you.
  18. Not looking for a diagnosis here, just looking for a recommendation for someone who can diagnose it for me.
  19. I have an old pool with some blotchy discoloration on the floor tiles. My pool guy has cleaned what was a green/blue stain down to a light gray discoloration which either does not come off or immediately returns. I need someone knowledgeable enough to tell me if it can be cleaned, killed or if it is some sort of permanent etching damage. Thanks.
  20. Used to be the lawyers office on the corner of Galeana. Simultaneous post.
  21. Ok I went by Steren and told them what I was looking for and he showed me a Steren brand that he said was the same (he didn't try to upsell me the more expensive model which I appreciated). After I installed it I'm getting 30 t0 40 megs in the back room and 45 plus in the front rooms, which is good enough for me. Now to see how reliable it is.
  22. Bedbug, I stayed at a rental that had a Google mesh system and it dropped out frequently and I ended up connecting directly to the modem wifi (it's possible that not turning off the modem wifi caused interference). Do you recommend a particular brand?
  23. CG I probably didn't state my observation regarding the wireless properties completely. The n enable button wasn't greyed out, but there was a disable button there and that along with what Task Manager reports makes me think it is connecting on n ( I hadn't had my coffee yet when I wrote that). On another subject the Ilox techs recommended an ASUS AC 1300 router as the best. Amazon has it but Steren's site doesn't. Do you or anyone else have a router recommendation?
