Quick question (possibly discussed before):
Is it possible to buy WorldNomads travel insurance while on the road to extend the trip?
Are there other options for those on the road?
potrllhajericqin #thailand3h
yeah, I was asking about the "normal" lines with a valid visa/visa exempt. I've personally walked past them reaching all the way to the walkway so that would be at least 2h wait but it was about 2 years ago I paid any attention
egtjiybowjlwqin #_gear3h
Totally agree, especially with Web assembly. I'm highly interested in what Blazor offers me with it's C# to Websasm

Peeps who need to take flights these days, this might be helpful www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/01/how-coronavirus-spreads-on-a-plane/

I will not be around but I grow up there, so feel free to ask for any tip/doubt.
odjgidqscnnyffmin #_gear2h
Anyone use any Sonos products and if so how do you like them?
woahucnkin #bulgaria2h
Hm, interesting. I loved the food (and price of it) in Turkey, but in terms of internet it was a disaster ๐Ÿ™‚ But yes, itโ€™s relaxing there outside of big cities.
ykhmlgqzmxein #_gear2h
I don't know wtf chrome is doing anymore but every time I wake my computer from sleep, chrome has to spin for like 5 minutes
huufkkacledin #_gear2h
ugh
eihcuyypevcin #_gear2h
I mean, yes I have heaps of tabs open but stillllllllll
dfuckdmein #_gear2h
the render seems to eat ram like it hasnt had any breakfastโ€ฆ
kucxxgin #_gear2h
xjnikgbtzx but we are not talking about Chrome Apps here right? what should I be googling here?
eodugain #_gear2h
it's like when Firefox decides to take all my ram out of nowhere
kzwxuhziedkygin #bulgaria2h
oh yeah. the internet at this particular hotel sucks. the last place i stayed was much better. most cafes have pretty good speeds, very easy to work with (for me), and when i work from home i tether to my phone. i paid xd $12 USD for 19 GB of data so the price is ok enough to do that and i think there are cheaper cell provider options.
ysmpvoin #_gear2h
I even have a shortcut on the desktop to kill it ๐Ÿ˜‚
fumqwezzzsuin #budapest2h
Also interested as I will be there in three weeks. After googling a bit my candidates are Kaptar (seems the best option in terms of community) or Up Center (price/location) but still unsure about the choice.
sjsmnqopajein #_gear2h
aaaaaaaaand now my computer sounds like a jet engine taking off and the network is congested by who knows what and this sounds like the right moment to just get a smoke
fguyrisfin #_gear2h
that one too. and safari just decided to crash on me a couple of times with 6 tabs on, some years ago, and we have been successfully divorced ever since. Opera is my last hope, but I cannot get used to the outlook.
jalourcppfmtehhin #_gear2h
Opera is still a thing?
hndupdbiin #_gear2h
It has a free vpn even!

okay question for google docs savvy people I added some notes onto a google doc and I want someone else to be able to see the notes but when she opens it in google docs she can't see them
fvkyrpjbolkin #_gear2h
halp
kdcmbtebbwiin #___general2h
Itโ€™s been probably over 8 months since I joined the community and havenโ€™t been able to make a switch to remote position yet.

Am I doing it wrong or does it take time to really get into it ?

Just wondering :thinking_face:

<#C02SU0WLE|_jobs-talk>
kdanvfzwgpnin #_gear2h
by notes I mean "add comment" like annotating the document
cacpwcjain #_gear2h
whoโ€™s the owner of the doc?
fajrmhljlzin #_design2h
Piggybacking on this I find that this disparate list of concerns is part of the reason it's difficult to maintain a portfolio with a consistent theme/voice. I can design and build an app from the ground upโ€”from prototyping to database integration and lots of niche stuff in betweenโ€”but throwing all of that in one place makes it look kindaโ€ฆI dunnoโ€ฆslapdash?
bzfybunivzoamhin #___general2h
idyknoykwjkr it took me a while before finding a job that allowed me to work remote, I donโ€™t know what field youโ€™re in but in my case finding a job as a software engineer is generally quite easy (ask any engineer how many โ€œexcitedโ€ recruiters spam their linkedin). Finding a remote role however was suddenly a lot more competitive. Iโ€™d say everyone has their own pace, and as long as you keep cracking at it youโ€™ll get there ๐Ÿ™‚
jzgnxfgfnefin #_gear2h
me
dsqyquflnejin #_gear2h
I figured it out
urusmabysocin #_gear2h
it has to be shared as "viewer can comment/edit"
jbkljlfjdtin #_design2h
I think, in my situation, it might be worth doing an in-depth profile of 3 or 4 major areas along a single product's entire development
mbeymhrbknzin #___general2h
I am Software Consultant myself. But I doesnโ€™t seem to get the hang of the whole Remote Process.

Sure, I am doing my Naive mistakes but need to fix them sooner than later
yuulmzitifdin #___general2h
most of my work comes from my personal network
pikwvvvhpbkin #___general2h
ask around and basically spam everyone you know (politely) to see if they have heard anything
nqctlxninedin #___general2h
I did get one promising message on linked in the other day
xvabcybhofxin #___general2h
apparently paypal has 100% remote roles, who knew
ykcblezwnjrin #___general2h
so I may as well apply
ifxzmzcain #_relationships1h
Itโ€™s not about green card, itโ€™s about novelty factor
jydvnpdbin #thailand1h
Nah itโ€™s rarely more than a 20-30 minute wait
pylyyaxpin #thailand1h
Usually more like 10 minutes wait
xzzbcgjmiobdin #colombia1h
I'm heading to the coffee region in a few days. Does anyone know a beautiful place to stay where I can work comfortably too? I'm looking at Filandia, Salento, Pereira Armenia.
iiaxstsyjmwhbin #_jobs-talk1h
Looking for a CSS โ€œNinjaโ€ ( i prefer the term gosu personally) with good sense of design to help me out with our new UI initiative P/T contract! If interested please DM w portfolio, rate, availability, and anything else you would like to share with me.
tixvnqgmlkksin #colombia1h
YES!
eatfwowockzdin #colombia1h
htgpfqhyxmotf just spent 2 weeks in salento
qphgouwioeskin #colombia60min
stayed at casa olier hotel where the wifi was mehh around 5 mbps
omxuyhhqkqpein #colombia60min
but in cafe jesus martin it was around 10 Mbps
lxonrjhamnppin #colombia59min
i think the town is honestly just adorable though and would highly recommend you visit
wskoeljikqin #___general59min
same here, my current full time and side jobs (DevOps) all came from my personal network. though I do get more positive replies from recruiters these days when I ask them if the company they represent is open to remote.
egkcvfaqsyywin #colombia59min
def check out finca momota too
zsbgmvvcmgyqin #colombia59min
and cocora valley
slbzimezcztyin #colombia59min
I was looking at the Coffee Tree. And I was also looking at the Selina outside of Filandia.
pzvzhqvmqmcwin #colombia58min
ah didnโ€™t realize there is a selina in the area
oticjsdxrywain #colombia58min
iโ€™ve worked at other selinas before and the wifi is solid
rxziyebcnygfin #colombia58min
i just personally wouldnโ€™t live there
xzluxitwnpeuin #colombia57min
It's new (end of last year) I think. I just came from 2 productive weeks at Selina in Medellin. The Filandia one has no coworking space.
rycssdnaxwfxin #colombia56min
ahh sadness
bqoqioxxqvtcin #colombia54min
I don't really need all that much. Just a comfortable chair. I don't even need quiet. I grew in NYC and the noise is comforting ๐Ÿ˜„
kpypdzzrxvnxin #colombia54min
hahaha i ended up managing to work just fine in salento
vuslwrzcyzpnin #colombia54min
tho obviously my internet in bogota is way better
ywfxqacojvssin #colombia53min
so yeah in salento - the combo of casa olier hotel (which had a few places to sit and work including in my room) and cafe jesus martin (plus a few other cafes of choice too) worked well
voegdgxsdlagin #colombia51min
Is Bogota where you are now? I just arrived in Cali. I have meetings all day Friday and Saturday and then off to Eje Cafetero.
lefgleteicffin #colombia51min
yup iโ€™m in bogota until the end of february
wehfvhbudifyin #colombia50min
I had to change planes in Bogota today (ugh). I waved did you see me?
xiqufsdoezxhin #colombia50min
haha for sure
jbwggpytynfuin #colombia50min
i waved back ๐Ÿ‘‹

nmgnlmiqin #vietnam42min
so any good hospitals in da nang or vietnam?
nvoyrdupin #vietnam42min
i was checking aroudn in google maps on da nang, checking the reviews
qbhdwyqfin #vietnam42min
and some crazy bad reviews even at the "good" hospitals
jecrzrngin #vietnam41min
prices seem to be much higher than thailand as well
fiyvbmsvzin #_flying41min
Yah. BA are giving up till end of feb minimum
emrhdukxin #vietnam41min
gonna be interesting what coronavirus would cost in da nang vs thailand
grbxmmdcyin #_gear41min
vbrkcccxelbbxbeu I think people like them from hardware perspective, but a lot of people dislike them for bricking perfectly good hardware (planned obsolesce)
ckxurwwyoin #_flying41min
I noticed AA mile prices had dropped a lot even to other destinations
deqngrzkwacggkgqayin #_gear41min
Yeah I shoot M43 too (Panasonic G80). Nice. May as well get an FF body if youโ€™ve got FF lenses though, no?
qqizgscuxin #budapest40min
Yeah, I think Kaptar is one of the most popular ones, there also seems to be some random coworking spaces here and where (just from walking around)
oxnelmgycefqgyain #_gear40min
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that last part?
tajncfxgeligjeyin #_gear40min
aarbtushwin #thailand39min
Yeah, never timed it but don't think stood in one for longer than 15 minutes, it looks like a very big line, but it seems to be moving quickly. At the same time after 12 hour flight my understanding of time might be different
qsuqwdaztin #_gear37min
iwjeknxrdrsyisfh Try to google for something like "sonos disables updates for older devices + new devices now allowed to update if where is an old device on the network" and "sonos kills planet my filling landfills with perfect hardware saying it's for environment to give small discount for new device", it's like TLDR of articles/tweets I seen in maybe last month or so
fjpzqriptin #_gear34min
Personally it felt to me like their hardware is good, but it's a shitty company so out of principle I wouldn't be buying their products ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
efoaxkbgin #_taxes-us34min
Thatโ€™s what I plan too this year. Got enough of this state. Is it easy to just move there if you donโ€™t have a permanent job and do freelance? I mean in South Dakota, for example, you just need a hotel check to become a โ€œresidentโ€. Something similar in Texas I guess? Like a month of rent in RV park?
bonppujunmmkaxiin #_gear33min
hmmmm....I'll look into that. Thanks!
zkartyin #argentina29min
Thanks for the info! What is MercadoPago? Is that like Argentinian Apple Pay?
botjpjfjin #_taxes-us29min
Question to you folks (especially UMJ7P5B5W). I have worked with several clients on Upwork last year. One of my clients was in Texas, the other in CA. My residency is technically CA. When I file taxes, does it mean that Iโ€™ve earned money in another state too or no? Or since Iโ€™m self-employed it means that itโ€™s only CA taxes?
bdnmvfin #argentina29min
Nice! Any experience forwarding phone/sms from your original phone?
zlthygin #argentina28min
Awesome, how much you paying roughly? Is unlimited affordable?
znlhqqpin #argentina26min
I am not sure if they have unlimited. I pay 280 ARS for 3 GB every 20 days.
qirmvukqptcnxin #_bargain-travel25min
for some of us, global entry is not really an option. and from what i've read, mobile passport is actually faster.
vwyuszewciein #_housing13min
๐Ÿค” I guess his glasses doesnโ€™t have magnetic partsโ€ฆ
ozcnrdrmin #vietnam7min
Based on the reviews, I've decided I'll use a government hospital when in Da Nang, if I ever need to.. either Hospital C or Hospital 199.. Hospital 199 is a training hospital located in Son Tra, close to the beach. Here's hoping none of us need to go to the hospital anytime soon ๐Ÿคž
