I agree but OR is not spelt with an f !!!!!!!!adrianb said:Years is not usually spelled with a 'v'.
Of does not have a v in it either.
And, english is spelled with one h, not two.
Finally, satellite is spelled just the way I wrote it here.
I hope this helps.
Sorry, but "Touch?", in French, spells with an accent on the "e"...Wales said:However : english is not correct. It should be English - Touche - That's French isn't it?
and then these two additional corrections he offered to others that made mistakes:Rhetorical has an H in it.
Sorry. Hate abuse of English language. That's how we get our accent, same as green grass. We cut it and roll it for two hundred years.
p.s. I don't live in England right...
I realise (OED) that there should be an accent over the 'e' but unfortunately I have an Apple iBook which does not have that ability. Sorry again. I think I spelled Black Label OK didn't I. Now does anyone have any useful information please?El Belga said:Sorry, but "Touch?", in French, spells with an accent on the "e"...
Stop bothering this guy. This is not fair at all. All he wants is some info and not your sarcasms. If you cannot help, don't, but don't laugh at people just because they don't write in English the way you do. Are you Mr. Perfect ?
thank you chrisChris said:Wales, we install satellite dishes for internet connectivity and voice over IP. It is however not the cheapest alternative.
In Sabaneta de Yassica there are few other alternatives, as DSL or Flash as it is known here, does not exist there.
There are two other alternatives - maybe someone else could offer more alternatives. Ramon out of Cabarete does wireless internet connectivity off one of the Verizon towers close by. I do not know whether he can reach your location.
Internet Cafe's abound and they are quite cheap. Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to move down, get used to the local way of doing things and then see what your real alternatives are.
As far as phones go, you need to check whether Verizon has local infrastructure in your area. If they do, dial-up to the internet is an alternative. Otherwise cell phones are quite cheap here, rates are cheap and most of us have only cell phones.
Television, I would suggest that when you are down here, you contact one of the local television dish installers (after you've verified that they give a good service) and get this done locally.
Regarding the spelling issues - We have English, American, German, Swiss, South African, Australian, French, Dominican, Russian, Other versions of Spanish and a host of other languages on the board. So, spelling is not so important and language is only important in order to get others to understand the issue. If we have to stand on language and spelling formality here, no-one will ever post.

Personally I could care less how anyone here spells. I just found his original posting to be a little ironic given that he's already picked on people 3 times for spelling.
Chris has given you the scoop as straight as it can be.Wales said:Don't you mean --- "couldn't care less" by the way the apostrophe is instead of the 'O'
Why don't you just stop and give advice if you have any.
PM me if you need Dolphie's phone numbers.Jerry K said:Dolphie Milz in Sousa can fix you up with a Dish network system. Best to subscribe in the states and just bring the receiver, remote and card down with you, buying the dish here. 100 channels will run you about $30-35 a month US. In your locale you should get about 5 or 6 off the air TV stations out of Santiago. Chris and her husband can fix you up with a satellite internet system where you both download and upload off the bird.

Sabaneta is out in the boonies and it may be difficult to even find a cellular phone that will work out there.
If you want fast internet, you may be out of luck, unless you can get fast satellite service. English TV will have to be by way of satellite as well and if you can get a hard line from Verizon, you most likely will only be able to get dial-up service which is slower than molasses going up a hill in January in Canada.
Why don't you just move somewhere where you can have all the services you want. You're going to spend a fortune trying to get services that may be impossible to get there or just plain inadequate.
God help me if I mispelled anything...
