  11. Since I have an Iphone, I have converted AAC, mp4 to mp3s to play in my car but have had some experience like you mentioned with the sound being dull and not good. I think the best is to get your mp3 in good condition in the beginning. I use a couple iphone programs to convert the songs etc.. on my laptop. I have not found a renaming tool. I can't remember all the old dos commands to rename, copy and move /? to do an entire directory of songs. One tool to mention to folks is the saver2 application for windows, you can listen to Pandora and have he app save a copy of the song in AAC or MP3. Take a bit to set it up, not recommended for the non-techy. Not as great as what you want, limited song availability though.

    Question about deep wells

    The reservoir above my place is a huge concrete tank (15k cum?) which I'm told is filled from deep wells. But I'm also told only goes to Lacion for treatment and then on to MEPZA.

  17. all over bah the shouting I think. Hot, sunny and almost no wind here in Argao.
  18. Hope they do well - Grab and taxi's need more competition. They haven't gotten LTFRB approval yet - so anything could happen ... full article at - https://www.topgear.com.ph/news/motoring-news/arcade-city-ph-a962-20191205/ "The ride-hailing app is entering the market...again" "You know how they say when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is? Well, Arcade City is making quite a few lofty promises ahead of an attempted re-entry into the Philippine market—the second time the app is doing so—but we’ll let you guys, our readers, be the judge. The app is relaunching worldwide on January 1, 2020, and the company says it’ll be making a significant push in the Philippines for both car and bike ride-hailing transportation. The legitimacy of this will no doubt be challenged—if not dismissed completely—by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), like the agency did during Arcade City’s previous attempts to enter our country. Anyway, back to what Arcade City is promising. For starters, the app claims driver and biker partners will be able to keep 100% of their fare. “No messing around with PIN codes to send us a cut. You earned that money—you should keep it!” the company says in its blog. What’s more, Arcade City says it will not charge riders, drivers, and bikers in the Philippines to use the app for the first month: “No cut on rides, no setup fees, no paid orientation packets, nothing!” Lastly, Arcade City drivers and riders will completely police themselves via ‘guilds.’ The company says details regarding this will follow. You can read the company’s full announcement here. In a blog post entitled ‘Gamifying the gig economy,’ the company describes its future product direction as “Uber meets Pokemon Go”: “Service requests for rides and more will be enabled worldwide on day one, alongside a plethora of familiar game systems like guilds, quests, chat, experience points and levels, collectible items both consumable and wearable, loot boxes, and more.” The company acknowledges previous attempts to enter the Philippine ride-hailing market in 2017 and 2018, but says “this time we are coming to stay.” We guess we’ll find out more once the app launches."

    Elon Musk announce the Tesla Cybertruck

  23. Never had a problem in Cebu, also never experienced that a driver claimed to have a broken or not good working meter. As far as i know they also take a fair and shortest route even if the trip is very short. I know the taxibusiness very well and compared to Manila and Europe i have to say “ thumbs up “, Cebu taxiservice is outstanding.. Acceptable 😂, this is philippines, as long as the breaks work no problem
  24. Duterte's complaint seems to be that the government doesn't control pricing............IDK again.

      Good morning! I recall that you mentioned that you were thinking of having solar panels installed at your house on Camotes. Did this happen and can you please tell me where you got your  solar panels from?
      My wife and I have a house on Camotes and we are interested in installing solar panels on our roof.
      Thank you in advance!

      Just thought I would drop by and say hi (finally remembered my login  )
      Just a quick update and to report that rumors of my demise have been grossly exagerated.
      While I will never be back to 100%, I am doing quite nicely, or better than expected
      There are several things I am not able to do and one is to fly for more than about 4 hours due to cabin pressure, and that really pisses me of as the Philippines has been close to me for nearly 50 years.
      The other is I can no longer play the piano, which was my means of relaxation and stress relieving.
      I strongly believe that being active, in good health and reasonably fit has enabled me to get back this far.
      BTW, I am 82 in a few months and going better than many younger than me.
      Cheers and Keep safe guys
