Re: Argentina power outage

Whether solar activity (research Carrington), cyber attack (yeah Snowden said that Germany and Japan have power grids held hostage to kill switches controlled by NSA) I would advise anyone in Chilelandia to do a 1 week experiment without LUZ (and make it that it was unexpected starting at 3:30 am on...

Re: Argentina power outage

Learning experience that I was prepared for and even more so. Back in 85, I heard San Antonio was without power for around three months.

Re: Argentina power outage

For those that were here, think about after the 2010 earthquake. Most of Chile, even close to the epicenter, still had electricity. It was not until many hours later that they took regional grids partially offline for safety checks and repairs. I think we lost electricity in Temuco around 10 a.m. t...

Re: Cellular phones

Need more data points, I'm sure I'm not the only one that has tried country unblocking a Chile phone. I believe if the Chile carriers are using customized firmware, then the unblocking services may not work. Can someone correct any technical misunderstanding I have on this. That's interesting, I bo...

Re: MOVING TO CHILE

All the requirements for visa app can be found on the extranjeria gob website, either that or you "pay" the law office below to help.

I personally do not see the need to apostille a high school diploma or US SS card.

Re: Cellular phones

There was a thread on this a while back. This was after Chile ordered all carriers that their phones must be able to be used among all domestic carriers and not carrier blocked. I believe out of spite, they followed that regulation BUT then COUNTRY BLOCKED their phones via the firmware. Don't know i...

Any recommendations for a CERC CAD/CAM equipped office with experienced staff to use it that does porcelain crowns?

Re: Buying Gold/Silver Coins

So yeah, everyone has an opinion (based on a sliding scale of objective reality or not), and everyone has a different situation and story, and so everyone must decide risk/reward just like every other investment or speculation whether a small 10% insurance hedge or less or much much more. One scenar...

Re: ATM fee

Long time ago before BE started charging, BE ATMs would only accept Cirrus network foreign ATM and debit cards. When they started charging, their machines began accepting Plus network cards. As others have noted, there may have been another "update" recently (noticeable with changes on the max withd...

Re: Buying Gold/Silver Coins

Most persons here have more than one flag planted so to assume a 100% Chile-only question and answer may not 100% apply. I've asked before but never received answer. What other countries besides say the US can one travel to to easily liquidate mainline non-Chile AU coins (Eagles, Maples, Roos, Phils...
