  1. Wow!!! I swear only in Cebu, you will not believe what just happened... so I pulled into the gas station and when I walked up I noticed these two cops watching a woman who was smoking while pumping gas! I saw her and thought, "Wow who even does that... with the cops right there too." So I go into The gas station and as I was checking out I heard someone screaming. I looked outside and the woman's arm was on fire! She was swinging her arm & running around going crazy! I ran outside and the cops had put her on the ground and were putting the fire out with their coffees! Then they put hand cuffs on her and threw her in the police car. I was thinking "She shouldn't have been smoking & pumping gas!" But being the nosy person that I am, I asked them what they were arresting her for... The cop looked me dead in my eye and said...>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> "WAVING A FIREARM!" Wahahahahahahaha!
  2. This is BS, they mislead me about my modem and don't know my service is limited 10Mbps and how my service went from 20 Mbps to 10 without any notification ticks me off. Incompetence, lying, trying to cheat? And this is suppose to be the better of 2 local companys. All made worse by knowing of someone else going through the same thing. I am setting up my strategy for Monday so I will end up at customer retention. Your paying $99 for just internet.
  3. So just like the PI's you have a ̷f̷i̷x̷e̷r̷ tech.
  4. I get a call this AM, Florida is getting like PI's, I am talking to broken english tech actually speak better english when I get a PI call center! When I signed up for Xfinity I bought a 20 Mbps service, somewhere in the plan they can change it and I am now on a 10 Mbps service and 3.6 mbps is the best I am going to get. Unless of course I pay for a higher package. My wife told me they are having the same issue at her shop, they changed the plan they have with no notification and the manager has spent the last 2 months dealing with them. I currently pay $39.95 month (US) and would have to go to $49.95 month, that is just for internet, no TV. I am not sure what I will do. I do not have the energy or desire to do battle with them.
  5. On my last trip to Nam I got all my ducks in a row, arrived and left the visa at home.
  6. The key ingredient in BKF is oxalic acid with an abrasive.
  7. Yup, not wifi and as usual I am a day late and a dollar short. Only one neighbor has the same carrier as me and he is getting 12Mbps . So I did the obvious I moved everything outside to the cable box and hooked up to the ISP cable before it enters the house. 3.6 Mbps. It is their problem, the dirty rats!! I don't know what happened, I used to be so much smarter?
  8. The dirty rats! Bought a new modem tested speed, 3.6Mbs just like the old modem, now they want to send tech. I(f it is on their end, no charge, if it is not their issue I get charged.
  9. After I ordered it I had a thought, I should have asked the neighbors what kind of speed they are getting.
  10. BIL decided he did not want another computer from Lazada, They were quick to refund his money and he purchased one locally from I suspect part of the decision was based on the excitement of getting a new computer and having it in hand now. But I do not pretend to understand the PI mind. I would say that Lazada is good to deal with and although costing more, better to buy locally. And now you know the rest of the story
  11. If you think about this for a bit a looooong time ago you bought a desktop from me for a friend. I was staying at the Richmond at the time and getting ready to leave the PI's
  12. The part of the trip where I feel least safe is the van ride to Ormac! I once asked the driver if his grand father was a Kami Kazi pilot and he replied yes Sir!
  13. Hmmmmm I expected more response to this. Anyway, my first thought was to buy a new modem, however I have never heard of anyone replacing a modem because it was old, bad modem yes, old no. Well there was that one time when they replaced everyone's old modems because they were such a great company and appreciated their customers so much, wanted them to be happy, truth came out that the old modems would not work on their new system I can't rent a modem as when I was a youngster my mom found out that she had been renting a phone for years while she could have owned it and went on a rant for several days. Just one of those imprinted things. The company has a list of modems approved for their service so I will order a new one now. It is 8:13 AM in Florida I should have it from Amazon tomorrow night. Thanks for the input, greatly appreciated. Jester
  14. From what I have seen of PI's construction the cross brace/wire may not work if the post it is attached to is not straight. If the post is the issue then a wheel would be the best bet. Round wheels are preferred but not always available in the PI's. Only my opinion, not to be misconstrued as professional advice or wisdom.
