  1. they only made the announcement yesterday " Samsung announced Monday it would sell some Note 7 "
  2. Many people find it hard to live with someone of lesser intellect..
  3. Damn ! Is there no romance on Linc ??? True love knows no bounds .
  4. Absolutely right !! Some members should take off their sunglasses and clothes and stand in front of the bathroom mirror and try to figure out how any cute young girl could be with them without vomitting. If its good enough for the goose.................
  5. I was there today and I can see how the changes are a big improvement to the place. This studio is a much better deal than the units being sold by the developer in the building. I couldnt believe how much air flow was going through the place. I normally cant survive without aircon but [ at least today] it sure wasnt necessary!.
  6. actually not . She had to leave and he had to wait for until the next day to do the transaction
  7. I just looked at the cards and what they offer. To me its a pretty sleazy way of describing what they offer. A Dengue card- with 10,000 coverage for accidental dismemberment ? Do lots of people with Dengue get dismembered as a result? A card offering 30,000 pesos coverage- but only for outpatient services. etc etc For me most of the detail is in what they either exclude or don't say . [ but then I was an insurance litigator in a previous life lol ]
  8. Absolutely correct !! His name was Bill. He was the manager at the currency exchange business.
  9. So if it costs about 10K for a new one, and the OP says he is negotiating to buy a used one, And this is presumably to go out on the open ocean in . mmmm I'm thinking I would just spring for the new one at 10K
  10. I just emailed my daughter in Canada, told her to take a cashiers check in Cdn to my favorite exchange place, then emailed the exchange place and gave them instructions to exchange to usd then where to wire the funds in the Philippines . All they really need is the Swift code. Simple
  11. This reminds me of the Canadian big time drug dealers who decided to set up shop in Manila . And soon got busted. Its very hard to blend into a culture where you look very different, act very different, and the locals will all rat you out in a heart beat ! . Its a big mistake to consider the yokels easy pickings .
  12. I have always bought both Philhealth and Blue Cross/Pacific Cross. In 7 years I have never had a claim. However, with the new Philhealth rates I will just drop the Philhealth and keep the Pacific Cross. I can see private insurers getting a big boost in business with the new Philhealth rates going into effect
  13. Lee- I'm not sure that you are correct . My MIL gets Philhealth coverage and she is 89.
  14. What kind of cables will I need for 4K? The two standard cables you're most likely to use are either a standard HDMI or if you're connecting a PC to a Ultra HD monitor, DisplayPort. HDMI cables now come in four flavors: high speed with ethernet; high speed without ethernet; standard speed with ethernet and standard speed without ethernet. Standard speed cables are capable of 1080i, but aren't able to handle the bandwidth of 4K. High speed cables can do anything higher than 1080. Now, as long as you're using the same class of cable, there is no distinguishable difference in terms of performance between one manufacturer's set of cables and another's. The speed of your connection will depend on the types of connectors, which includes HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 2.0a. HDMI 1.4 connectors support a 3820x2160-resolution at 30 frames per second, while HDMI 2.0 is the latest spec and can output video at Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second. (But more on that below!) HDMI 2.0a is capable of HDR, which is limited to a very specific range of televisions from each manufacturer. The other type of cable you can use is DisplayPort. DisplayPort carries 4K image and audio signal from most high-end graphics cards to monitors without any noticeable artifacts or delays. http://www.techradar.com/news/television/ultra-hd-everything-you-need-to-know-about-4k-tv-1048954
