What are your thoughts on the Zika virus?


by @paulmanea | 5yr  | 7 comments

For those traveling through South America at this time, what are your thoughts regarding the Zika Virus? Have you heard about anyone who got it?
Iโ€™m planning to go to Medellin and Brazil from March to June and Iโ€™m trying to figure out if I should be worried as these countries seem to be the most affected.

I live in northeastern Brazil and Iโ€™m not worried. From the CDCโ€™s website, 4/5 people infected with Zika show no symptoms, and for those who do, โ€œPeople usually donโ€™t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika.โ€ Source: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/symptoms/index.html

Hereโ€™s an interesting article about an alternative root cause for microcephaly. Monsanto strikes again?

โ€œZika has traditionally been held to be a relatively benign disease that has never before been associated with birth defects, even in areas where it infects 75% of the population.โ€

Uruguay is still safe from zika virus and i think Chile too. Now if you travel to Colombia or Brazil your chances of getting the virus increases. Common senseโ€ฆ

The Zika virus is still an issue for non-pregnant people, both men and women however Iโ€™m not entirely worried about it.

There are bunch of virii that can be transmitted by mosquito, itโ€™s a standard problem in tropical areas. Just do the usual prevention and hope for the best. Iโ€™m no more worried about it than I am with Dengue fever.

yes. but if youโ€™re not pregnant itโ€™s not a serious threat. not one to overly stress about or to cause you to avoid an area.

i think that unless youโ€™re pregnant or planning to get pregnant, itโ€™s not a huge worry.

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 6d 5 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

Am I being silly by worrying about getting Zika in Bali? ๐Ÿ˜•


by @metamas | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Bali was at the top of my short-list of places to go DM for 1-3 months until I saw it had the โ€œZykaโ€ tag on Nomad List :scream: . Iโ€™m not super read-up on the whole state of Zyka, other than occurrences of infection being on a decline (for now), but I am a worrisome enough person about such things that it has got me reconsidering. Though, it still seems to not be stopping the rate of DMs visiting Baliโ€ฆ

Is there cause for large concern here, or I am just being a nut? โ€ฆItโ€™s been known to happen pretty frequently over such things :anguished: :face_with_thermometer: :mask:

Developers! Thoughts on the new Pixel C laptop/tablet for travel?


by @dave_chakrabarti | 5yr 5 years ago | 9 comments

Itโ€™s that time of year again, where I see cool swanky new tablet / laptop hybrid things and start wondering if I could actually replace a Macbook Air for shorter / longer travel.

Anyone have any thoughts on Googleโ€™s new Pixel C? Anyone have experience writing code (or for that matter, writing long-form text, like a novel) with either Android or IOS as your main operating system? Would you leave the Macbook at home for a one week trip? A one month trip? Long-term?

  1. I know the softwareโ€™s not quite there yet. I anticipate major issues being the lack of web dev tools for mobile OSes (I write a ton of front-end code!), and flaky alternatives to Sublime. Iโ€™m interested in figuring out if itโ€™s โ€œgood enoughโ€. For example, howโ€™s Cloud9 on Android? Any workarounds I should know about?

  2. Anyone living tethered to Tmux / Vim on a Linode (or other VPS) full-time? Iโ€™m not drinking the Vim Koolaid (or well-aged single malt) yet, but might consider it if thereโ€™s a tangible reason for it.

  3. Is the hardware trade-off likely to hurt a lot? $500 - $600 buys quite a lot of laptop, running Intel 4th gen processors + the never-ending clunkiness of trying to make Ubuntu work on Windows hardware. Where should I expect to feel the pain on a Pixel C?

  4. Anyone figuring out a semi-reliable way to multi-task with multiple windows in Android? For example, how painful would it be to run two terminal sessions, a Cloud9 window, and a Rails tutorial window at the same time, switching between them constantly?

  5. Is there a compelling reason to consider an Ipad Air 2 over the Pixel C? Theyโ€™re in the same ballpark, and though Iโ€™ve stuck with Android as a phone OS, Iโ€™m very used to working within the Apple ecosystem for work stuff (downloading El Capitan as I type this).

Note: Iโ€™m fairly anti-Windows these days, especially as a dev environment (havenโ€™t used it since XP), so an older Surface isnโ€™t likely to be a good alternative unless the Ubuntu support is rock solid :smile:

Thanks! All feedback appreciated.
