Re: Status of Allchile forum members

Thanks everybody. I left Santiago in January and Chile as a whole in mid February. I´m in Buenos Aires on my way home to the states and really appreciate all the help this forum has been in the past and the concern now. All good, no worries for me. You're all in my thoughts

Re: OSX

Thanks for your quick reply. I added the addresses of the OpenDNS servers 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 to my DNS panel in Network Prefs and did not see any effect.

Re: Help Please...Electricity in my apartment

Oh there's no doubt that a little irrelevance spices up facts better than just about anything else. Chuck, while you did give me a ton of great advice, it's clear that particular one, didn't stick. I think the survival instinct of needing to get to a job interview without the 'half beard' over-rode ...

Re: Help Please...Electricity in my apartment

Thanks so much for all the replies. There was a panel seperated from my apartment that needed to be accessed. Again, thanks so much for all your help.

Clint, my girlfriend is really really hot and you'll just have to take my word for it :)

Cheers

Re: Advice on following an employed girlfriend to Chile?

Thanks so much for the quick responses. I don't plan on doing anything illegal, but I do appreciate the depth of your warning. I'd definitely like to avoid the circumstances your describing. My question on jobs was really more pointed at resources for legitimate jobs that would come with a proper wo...

I am going to be joining my girlfriend in Santiago in early March. She has a student visa and a job teaching ...
