What carriers work over there? Do I need a dual SIM phone?

gotymztggucu nope, Mars to Earth distance varies "It takes 4 to 24 minutes (depending on where earth and mars are in their orbits) for commands to reach Mars spacecraft from earth, this latency is roughly what you would expect over an internet connection to earth per transaction."
insbeyfciiutzqrmin #_gear6h
yeah I'm using an ergodox right now
jgwqqfeyyigakvfein #_gear6h
it's not perfect for me since I have smaller than average hands but there has been a coincidental complete elimination of shoulder pain since I started using it
aeayeavjsxqvfvin #_photography6h
I'm a little worried about black and white. Not sure what sort of scenes are best. Probably portraits?
ybzyneszin #_covid196h
China uncensored is pretty legit to me too, I've been following this channel for more than a year now and I don't remember doubting even once what the guy said in the show, you can easily find other sources on the things he says on the internet (he also points to articles all over the internet during the show)
iuuoxixannwaczin #_photography6h
Wife is very good with the camera. She took three of the photos above. She's teaching me how to use it. It's fun!
bocuccswvvltevin #_photography6h
Lomography style sounds fun too. I just read a little about it now.
kgfluykyin #_covid196h
Being funded by the Falung gong or not doesn't remove the fact that one can easily check the sources from the video, and if these sources are trustworthy then what makes the show untrustworthy from reporting from these same sources? I guess one could say it's their bias toward emphasizing how bad the Chinese regime is... but I guess you cannot withdraw the rage people have after being prosecuted in their own country for their unharmful practices
nzwcqmrufyljuin #_photography6h
tetzqceflvxibkp black and white truly shines to show the texture, and form of something through the image
kiughgtkbontuin #_photography6h
(not my photo)
coiaidrjnuqhwin #_photography6h
Here's an example of showing the form of something. If it were a color photo, the sunset and cars would dominate. But, using B&W the contrast of the trees, and the empty dark space in the upper right takes priority
laovnbggorfrvfin #_photography6h
I see. That makes sense.

exactly, absorb what you can and do your own research. just blankly saying 'BAD SOURCE' is pretty low on the hierarchy of disagreement bigthink.com/paul-ratner/how-to-disagree-well-7-of-the-best-and-worst-ways-to-argue

Coming back to Hoi An in April ๐Ÿ˜

zexnryoinxvvhkuin #vietnam5h
How long wiill you be in Hanoi? Maybe weโ€™ll fly up to visit
qufitwablfyqqcin #_covid195h
I don't believe anyone called out China Uncensored for being a bad source. It's a biased source so further inquiry is encouraged - which it seams like people are doing.
eewybxhjvxreegin #vietnam5h
We have our Hanoi apt until March 6. We're going to do a long weekend in HCMC and the end of this week so come soon!
ijadjbgwyesyjtin #vietnam5h
We need an excuse to go back to TUNG Dining

off to Phuket this week
wcbzmvhpjsqxdoin #vietnam5h
Well - we may come back to Vietnam if more countries start shutting the door to travelers coming out of Japan & Korea - who knows. We live in interesting times.
rjtwsvkacgjdin #thailand4h
In Bangkok for this next week, looking to meet up with some interesting people. I'll also be shooting a review of the nomad lifestyle in Bangkok, so would love to hear any pro-tips you might have and any great co-working stops that you'd recommend checking out. DM me ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hey all, I'm in Saigon until next Friday then Nha Trang, then Hanoi for a week each. It's my second time here. Any events or free time, send a message, always happen to connect with others. I'm a location-independent noamd, change countries about one per month.
kevebndmzmlwin #_coders3h
Netlify is the best.
qpiqxkjlgsein #philippines3h
Hi, new to this group ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m travelling to Philipines for a short week trip next month to meetup with local and expat software developers and also local freelancers / self employed. Any tips or advice on good places to go?
iflrdsrgjwiin #_gear3h
Did you visit the mechanical keyboard shop in Tokyo? They have plenty of keyboards which include smaller ones and/or less keys
woumppbvkoin #bulgaria3h
How do you deliver you teaching lessons? Through audio lecture, audio video 1:1, screen sharing...?

I'm asking as I'm always looking for better approaches to improve my remote instruction
pwxudshfbsttjwcmin #philippines3h
Depends where you're going. Bonifacio Global City is a decent area, if you're heading to Manila. Cebu has IT Park. Not a whole lot of tech expats in Philippines though compared to most other parts of SEA. The internet in Philippines sucks and general quality of life is just not as good as other parts of SEA. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
krmvkksjlhiin #philippines3h
Awesome thanks for that! Any ideas on good places / ways to meet local software devs?
tmobqqtejtzin #philippines3h
Was thinking of going around some co working spaces for a day and meeting some people that way
dnbbrcomsoin #philippines3h
There is an fb group "Digital Nomads - Makati Philippines" and they have "coworking days"
hflydnsfwmvlejuhin #philippines3h
Could visit coworking spaces. There's also a few tech meetup groups that might have an event on while you're around.
zplezrqjin #philippines3h
I can vouch. Terrible internet here. Currently undergoing an island-wide power blackout. Like a third world country.... wait, it is! Not a good idea to spend 4 weeks here, surfing or no surfing
zszfvpbain #philippines3h
Business wise
tppsypdmsclkgantin #_gear3h
There are tons of mechanical keyboard places here heh
Is there a specific one your referring too?
ehfbytmvqgqnookjin #_gear3h
I like a lot of the extras with the ergonomics like the tilt kit and wrist wrests it came with but Iโ€™m getting another small split kb to take with me in my backpack
assalqxhiwcin #_gear3h
Didnโ€™t know there are many, but I mean Yoshakobo which should be pretty unique in its kind

Which other one youโ€™re getting?
buxvzgnin #new-zealand2h
Does anyone have any tips on finding places to work from? Cafeโ€™s donโ€™t seem to be great for that here.
gvgbtbtin #new-zealand2h
Iโ€™m trying to avoid having to work out of McDonaldโ€™s ๐Ÿ˜‚
cblfccfquqin #philippines2h
jaxdmvihe I've already tried surfing. I suck at it and I didn't really enjoy it (probably because I sucked, but still I don't get why people love it so much) ๐Ÿ˜…
crcttmvoin #philippines2h
Haha, I was thinking the the same thing after last week. Maybe just give up on it. But I'm a persistent cunt ;)
onvaezuvptbftin #_coders2h
Netlify FTW
pmbyrxwddtin #philippines2h
I actually bought a board and tried it again a few times recently, but it was too much hassle for a few good moments. My next sport to try (and probably abandon too) is kitesurf ๐Ÿ™ƒ
vwuuvljzin #philippines2h
Yeah you're right, paddle paddle paddle, 3 seconds on a wave, paddle paddle paddle
gqidydeyin #philippines2h
Was thinking exactly the same thing
oncczgieeexin #_startups2h
The company Iโ€™ve work at do mainly do wordpress websites and host them all, I can happily help :)
rhwofcin #philippines2h
feiprovtb Is the island-wide power blackout on Cebu island?
ghrbjmin #philippines2h
Considering coming to Philippines for a month
ugrjtbwzin #philippines2h
Don't know. Don't think so
ghedxtgiin #philippines2h
No AC, no nothing
zmlndfbyin #philippines2h
Luckily phone is charged and I have a power pack
zpsnakin #philippines2h
Hope it gets fixed soon
apgibpin #philippines2h
Might go somewhere else as I do have quite some work the next month too hah
vnntnlin #philippines2h
Can't explain power cuts to customers unfortunately
bkrdgklifein #philippines2h
I live in Cebu City and blackouts are very rare. When they do happen, it's only for a short time. Can't even remember the last one. I think wvfsclkxz is in Siargao
sjtbrein #_gear2h
I wish I went to a mk shop when I was in japan
ophkytin #philippines2h
Is the internet good enough for video calls, though, URU608J7K?
xwabqzsshgin #philippines2h
If you go to a coworking space, yes
onjmdaitin #philippines2h
Siargao. First time I've experienced something like this. Been out since 8am. I checked the news, nothing. Someone I know told me it was planned. But even if it lasts until 5pm, ,9 hour power outage is pretty catastrophic, planned or not
azwvnokiin #philippines2h
Put me off ever coming here again
qkppxaeein #philippines2h
Data is shit out here too :-/
neayddfnin #philippines2h
Paradise Island otherwise, but this, not for someone who is a remote worker
hucagjaggjin #philippines2h
Mindanao (southern ph) has a lot of power problems. And Siargao in particular is a big No for working
ggtudpahatin #philippines2h
It's more of a place to get away
dbcljbafin #philippines2h
To be frank, Cebu, I was staying at a really nice airport hotel, I don't think they got above 2mbs - which is good for very low quality video calling. Data was better over there, however
ycujeyzhin #philippines2h
Yeah, 4 weeks... Another 3 to go! ๐Ÿคฃ
juxxmxazin #philippines2h
Luckily, I tend to wake up at 4am, and between 5am-9am I get really good internet. Then it takes a nose dive
wycgbyin #philippines2h
My bet is almost always on coworking spaces in any case for internet. Considering Manila too though, as it has quite a few.
vyzbixaoin #philippines2h
I don't know what Manila is like. Depends what your work involves. Mine is mostly manipulating spreadsheets, sending mostly Word documents, and uploading images and articles to websites. It's on there low end of the demanding scale when it comes to Internet usage
dgpohouuin #philippines2h
However, if you need to upload/download big files 10mb+ at a time, and need reliable video calling, I don't think the internet here, Cebu included, could handle it
zhrfegkergin #___general2h
It' 2nd of Feb, so should already be in effect
oybiqhojbubin #_gear2h
lfbwrzq a physical shop is good to try out a bunch of different types.
Meanwhile, there are already too many online shops that ship keyboard components around. I bought a lot of them online
mzquqekbdein #spain2h
I imagine having a crazy burning carnival with lots of tourists every year is thought, and I'd be leaving as well, if I lived therr
ercfakin #_gear2h
Yeah I bought some online too, even soldered one, but a physical shop has to be cool. Would be nice also to try ALL the different switches
gqxjjkzwbbyhxvqhin #philippines2h
Some beautiful places in Philippines, but I absolutely would not want to be here when I expect to need video call access or reasonably stable internet. I come here when I want to unplug from the internet and just focus on coding.
pgbzqsuskdfin #_gear2h
Definitely, after trying the switch tester from friends, tactile is just my favourite.
Because of this, I even have the portable solder iron on the road so I can repair keyboards anywhere
jkqxxvzakwvhin #_coders1h
Iโ€™ve been lazy so many times and used netlify _redirects for stupid things that I should properly code but they just work well that I donโ€™t mind.
vwgddxbin #_relationships1h
Weird Tinder nonsense. So I was bored and decided to clear out, unmatched whoever was left, and then got distracted. When I picked up my phone again I had a bunch of new matches, which is unusual. Then I had a look at the stack and it was totally repopulated. Looks like my score was reset too, it's no longer just a bunch of agencies and fake accounts.
vqsbcjkin #_gear47min
very bad Idea bro, I did it for long and fucked my posture, do Not do it - NOT good for long term - get a keyboard
caqxvmmrin #south-africa36min
Anyone got a cure for the jet lag ?

iphgjxljqhqfeoguin #_gear31min
upjarsnzsevo I was just going to buy one of the kits and pick my switches and key caps and build it
rqjpksdioqxtfyxqin #_gear31min
There are a few split design kits that I like here

npjccfaukyrccmdhin #_gear25min
Cool Iโ€™m just a few blocks from yushakobo
vnmtjhiwvjvclxlpin #_gear25min
Thatโ€™s a nice little detour on my way home
pvlxqfciyhzffqsyin #_gear24min
Thanks wbaaqsfsmuss I didnโ€™t realize they had a physical store. I live in Osaka so I never cared much since they donโ€™t have one there
zvttxcfxghiqhbgxin #_gear22min
Ugh 4 whole minutes of walking
