dgxff27d
wouldnโ€™t call it fast, by any measures, but itโ€™s enough for calls / dev work / watching video streams
qixnreijxu27d
gotcha
ksbsr27d
gaming, hopefully not fps
iplijfurmc27d
sadly, yes haha
ubefq27d
welllll
rumbi27d
okay so this is Medellรญn, Laureles, so a nice neighborhood. my airbnb came with โ€˜fast internetโ€™ that ended up being 10mbit
when it got clear that Iโ€™m staying, I asked the host to upgrade, for 20usd/mo extra I got โ€˜high-speedโ€™ at 25mbit
kwpmvuuahg27d
that's not too bad
dbbcy27d
probably in zona g in bogotรก you would be able to get better, at worst it would cost some
daqfgoaduh27d
gotcha
axnzhgbxls27d
I'll ask her sisters to do a quick speed test for me ๐Ÿ™‚
vdjbg27d
so I have about 18-25mbit down and 3-5mbit up
sdasr27d
test it around 6pm, when people get home and they clog the network
rmhka27d
despite all measures there are still people who get to travel to work so the early evening hits the internet a bit
biydcbhfrz27d
๐Ÿ‘
hbksocljfz27d
generally 15-20 + mb is good for gaming
ogwohhzawp27d
So I should be okay or at least doable
bxuqe27d
iโ€™d worry about ping
spcdfusogl27d
right
kyvrpizyfa27d
and servers
adsnpngjye27d
even if i'm a little high i'll manage
grinlgeljy27d
I grew up in Arakansas and gamed on 36k for years haha
zygsl27d
ah okay then
pgkivxoqes27d
it will be a jump going from Seattle speeds though, haha.
xymbb27d
definitely, but I think youโ€™re planning to move to the best area in terms of internet
xzpouxhpdn27d
From what I'm seeing around that area, I'd guess so.
pvtdygkgrf27d
the WeWork and other things I'd assume would need pretty solid internet
lacgt27d
as I remember also the business district is also there so the wires shouldnโ€™t need to go far, while Iโ€™m in a purely residential area, the business district is fairly far from here
bgdfhogbmn27d
yeah that makes a lot of sense
xlemlcpeoi27d
thankfully Valorant has great netcode and good servers ๐Ÿ˜›
apedf27d
I donโ€™t game, so I have little experience with it, but I hear they are putting a lot of effort to make it work everywhere
fkzwzaqwra27d
yeah, it's really cool.
heqnxaacuh27d
have a lot of faith in Riot
vakazwntnj27d
I love esports too, I think it's going to be very big in the space
ehduchykaf27d
Curious on the esports scene there.
dfjithirbl27d
I saw that Bogota has a couple of lan centers and looked like they had a couple organizations
xwmiv27d
Colombia seems to do pretty well with taking a lot of stuff online, so Iโ€™m sure if thereโ€™s a strong esports scene itโ€™s just getting better
vbgfw27d
there is a lot of training, cultural, dance sessions being put on instagram to keep the respective communities alive
the falxtvjxiolk account has a lot of content, they also do a lot of interviews with esports/gaming people as well
bsthwwqztp27d
Very nice, I'll check it out for sure.
ufmbvwtqbc27d
I need to start working on my Spanish too ๐Ÿ˜›
gbwjk27d
having a Colombian girlfriend is a fairly good start ๐Ÿ˜„
mkshg27d
La Morada is all in Spanish, forgot that you might not speak it that well
jynrh27d
I find Colombian Spanish, especially from Bogotรก super clean and understandable, so probably also a good place to start.
If you have the time, better start doing some courses already, because there having the opportunity to interact with her family, friends or anyone around gives a really good immersion experience, so it really pays off to be ready when it happens.
Also now a lot of language schools would probably be super happy to teach you Spanish online for Colombian prices as they struggle to get any clients
tbbtvwgigh27d
yeah, I've been looking at the best options
kppcihpgrl27d
one the plus side
xafkyyveuf27d
all of her family and friends speak English except one uncle
hbyxrqdomb27d
so that won't be a huge thing off the start
xpsfe27d
depends if thatโ€™s the plus side or not
mxzjvdgpdq27d
but still want to to have an understanding
urwqgmnepi27d
and start learning
lxgjupfntq27d
I've never been great at languages so.. haha.
psghimuwrp27d
better get started sooner than later
mmsczosjao27d
I had been messing with duel lingo
sfebf27d
exactly
whhfncdjgn27d
just starting off
srimgesvcd27d
but sure there are some better and more structured options out there
qprhd27d
never really gotten the hang of duolingo
iodxw27d
I learned with immersion and lots of classes
zezunydomd27d
yeah i think immersion will be big
oipjr27d
if Iโ€™d want to learn now, Iโ€™d just take a lot of private classes
zzexnnqvat27d
that with classes should help a lot
akzlzetdxz27d
yeah, I have a good friend in nyc that has been using a tutor
hoisphosdn27d
online
eirovpiolk27d
need to get his info, she seems to like it a lot
xburzkqqpx27d
I've been so exhausted from work stuff it's hard to think of putting energy into something else right now
uxmus27d
I remember there is a well-recommended school here in Medellรญn who does online as well, and also affordable, I can probably dig up their contacts
meufxbrfqg27d
but need to start blocking off time
ugyvrspjvo27d
that would be great
ilibq27d
but itโ€™s a lot of energy, I remember when I learned for 3 months my days were work - language class - homework - sleep, almost nothing else 4 days a week
lfpbb27d
it was crazy, but worth it on the long term. but then itโ€™s different when youโ€™re 20
vhsehtqaqj27d
yeah.... i'm 35 haha
obhbkxlmyc27d
so curious how my brain is going to process it all
ymovrrzmjo27d
getting old!
bbrwrqqkru27d
found out I can't jump over fences anymore too. haha
efyquecfui27d
broke my ankle...
sntykjdonu27d
the body is starting to give out ๐Ÿ˜‚
ifzsu27d
wow not the best time now to break an ankle
rjkcdcradj27d
well, it's good and bad
trbvmkpqtq27d
the good being, everyone else is stuck at home
qzrzzjilhf27d
so not a lot of fomo
xwrxxpylro27d
the bad is i'm even more stuck inside haha
uutlj27d
as long as it doesnโ€™t need medical attention, yes
sxuni27d
but I wouldnโ€™t want to go near a hospital now
hinabmffgx27d
yeah, it was right when stuff started getting crazy here
cofqxrsggn27d
like the same weekend
gsjmtsrsby27d
outside of going to follow ups it's been pretty good
iqymvvwmlk27d
not a lot of exposure
glqplsebom27d
when I had surgery a month ago the clinic was small and had been shut down for two weeks
wuoxu27d
you were lucky then they treated you
kmpotrvoeq27d
yeah it was good timing in the regard
kvopafiwgk27d
I can't imagine not being able to be treated, would have been bad if it would have happened a couple weeks later
xftrh27d
yeah that would have been crazy
yylvbijymb27d
Can't imagine
qyppd27d
apparently Iโ€™m not allowed to post links here
laimbpqzfa27d
oh really?
klfrlfisas27d
dang
utbwz27d
i can pm you the links
ibeqsumwdg27d
sweet
spdtn27d
okay sent you by pm
nqvhc27d
if youโ€™re not active for a while then there is a limit until you canโ€™t post links
rdpylenwan27d
ahhh gotcha
