    It's seems difficult to pay for things to DR companies with a non DR bank credit card (on their websites anyway, in person always works) Last month I finally found a way to pay Edesur online. If I pay from 'Edesur account' on their site or the phone app, my USA based bank cards are always...

    Thanks for the tip. I didn't catch that. :) But that doesn't appear to work for me.

    By the way, the Altice web site is functional again. The account section was broken for quite some time. Maybe a year? I don't remember. Called and tried to pay the bill over the phone a few weeks ago, and they charged my card 10 pesos. That's it. I was like OK now what? Seemed like nobody was...

    How do you like the new website re-design ?

    I usually have to go through a specific location for Amazon. Are you still receiving the captcha thing? Two step?

    How do you like the new website re-design ?

    I turned down the firewall a bit, should not be as problematic. IP shouldn't matter unless you're coming from a known bot network. More likely it's some kind of ad blocker or privacy shield, which might be on your network and you don't realize it. Even some countries and companies have a...

    Will I receive a package shipped from the US?

    Aeropaq keeps sending me emails saying they are operating. But I haven't tried it since the shutdown. They have limited offices open. They may deliver to your door, but my Spanish isn't good. I can try a shipment if you like. To see what happens. We may be in...

    New Forum Software - disappearing threads.

    It's easier to comment on and share an individual news post. I don't think the other site you mentioned has a forum, just an unmoderated facebook plugin. I have noticed there's almost always a post on that site about working at home and getting rich, etc.

    I'm still here

    This morning I went to the gym. That Smart Fit one with the Amazon smilie face logo. Came back home to cook. Started having crazy chest pains, sweating, and heavy breathing. I put a 500 mg aspirin under my tongue and let it dissolve. (i've read that's a quicker route to the bloodstream than the...

    Los Altos de Chavón

    Here are some photos from Saturday. I declared today is canned beer day, just because every other day is bottled beer day. I lived in Los Altos California for many years and it's similar to Los Altos Dominican Republic, it's the richest area (wealthy is a dangerous word) in DR i've been so...

    it's the thing in the guy's right hand, what appeared to be flexible wires in a wooden handle. I didn't touch it.

    Altice, I didn't know and more

    lol seriously. my Altice bill is crazy high IMHO, compared to the service I receive. It's RD$ 8,000 a month. I don't the breakdown between Internet, phones, and TV. They used to send a bill but stopped in February for some reason. I'm not sure if Claro has TV service? I do not watch TV. But...

    I'm working with the founder of Runner's World magazine to set up "Run The World" global run challenge. It's 24,901 miles. (40,074 km). Right now there's runners representing 11 countries, would be great to have runners representing DR.

    Why is it Dominicans eat Bananas with la Bandera (Arroz, Habichuela, Carne)?

    In the USA there is pretty much just one banana, the soft yellow one. I did not realize there are like 100 kinds of bananas until I visited to Rio de Janeiro. If you are not used to a humid climate, you may experience muscle cramps - eating a couple bananas will make these go away. They have a...

    Great to see an active forum

    Hello, I'm presently living in SF Bay Area California but relocating to DR around Christmas with the intention of marrying a Dominican. I'm an IT guy since the mid-1990's so it's great to see an active forum. I don't have any particular questions at the moment however I'm glad to have access to...
