Hello, I am interested in finding someone that either lives in Santiago, or who has spent some time there, to answer questions, and provide information.
I am planning a trip there next July (to include skiing). I am most interested in finding a reputable place to stay for at least one week, perhaps two. Such as a condo or flat rental. With a location central to the downtown area (shopping, eating, nightlife).
I have found a couple websites that have vacation rentals, but they provide little in the way of information such as specific websites and street locations.
Either post any links or suggestions here, or if you like, email me (or IM) at:
Thanks so much in advance,
ps: I live in the US.1 AnswerChile1 decade ago

So I have the 3rd movie from the library (Return of the King). Do I need to watch the first two in order for the third one to make sense?

My grandpa says that back during JFK's administration, the steel companies planned on jacking the price...
Kennedy threatened to order an audit on all of the companies, and the price hike never happened.
Based on the fact that the CEO's are still pulling in multi-billion dollar compensation funds in the oil industry, would Bush dare to audit them? Gas passed through $115 today.
My grandfather researches the stock market very carefully, and has made a ton of money off of it. He knows a lot about the system, blames congress, etc.

If you are going to answer this question...please read these details to see what I have already tried. Thanks in advance.
My system has two optical drives: a DVD ROM drive and a Multi Drive.
The Multi Drive recognizes disks with data on it, but if I put a blank disk in, it plays dumb. If I try to drag and drop files via My Computer, I get the Drive Inaccessible error.
Disk Management shows the DVD ROM drive and the capacity of the disk, but the Multi Drive shows zip (except that the drive exists...but no capacity, nothing in properties, etc).
It's not the drive itself, as I have interchanged another drive that was sitting around. They both play the same game.
I tried Master/Slave settings, and Cable Select settings. Nothing.
Nothing obvious in BIOS/CMOS either.
Does anybody have any other ideas? This is driving me crazy.1 AnswerOther - Hardware1 decade ago
I'm confused. Why are the Democrats bending to Bush, when Bush absolutely refuses to compromise on ANYTHING?
Bush is vetoing popular, bipartisan legislation.
Why should the Democrats bend for Bush's budget, where essential services for the AMERICAN people are cut in favor of war and corporations? Are they truly spineless?
I say if Bush won't compromise, then don't send him anything. Am I grossly wrong on this?
Heck, remember when the Republicans lost the majority a couple years ago? He DARED the democrats: if you don't support the war, you control the money.
That was a dare. Make the idiot eat his words. Yeah, I personally think Bush is the most incompetent president to ever be elected (twice). This is a true testament to failing schools if this is the best that American voters can come up with.8 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
If you don't have any unpartitioned space on the C drive, is it basically impossible to add partitions then?
Windows XP, dynamic disks (or basic)...either way.
Do you have to reformat the drive from the get go?
I have played around in disk management, as well as with 3rd party partitioning software...and the results lead me to think that you have to format the drive from the beginning so that it has unpartitioned space.

We are switching from DSL to fiber optic service. The service claims 50 Mbps connection speeds.
I am purchasing a wireless router to accommodate my laptops.
Will a 10/100 router do, or should I go ahead with a 10/100/1000 router?
Obviously option 1 should work...but will I get better performance with the gig?
Also, will the provider supply a modem to convert the fiber optic to Ethernet?2 AnswersComputer Networking1 decade ago
I know, not a very intellectual question, but I'm just curious. Can Bush speak a second language? Maybe Spanish?
Additional question: can Iran's president speak English more fluently than Bush, or less?
In truth, I refuse to listen to either one speak. They are both full of it.23 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
That has to be the last straw.
The man can spend billions upon billions, adding up to trillions in Iraq, but he wants to veto health care for poor kids (including my kids - I'm a teacher...my paycheck doesn't allow enough money to cover their health care).

This is not my laptop...but the person's kid spilled soda or something on it, and the keyboard doesn't work. I took it off and sprayed it with warm water, then blew it out with compressed air. Still didn't work.
I disabled the onboard keyboard, and plugged in a USB keyboard. That didn't work either.
Might the problem be something else besides the keyboard?
EVERYTHING else works. Touch pad, connecting to the internet, video, everything. Except the keyboard.

Why is Bush upset about MoveOn.org? He didn't exactly step to the plate to criticize the Swift Boat Veterans..

Any tricks I need to be aware of? I have a blank D drive, and an XP-Pro full install disk (with the key).
Specifically, how would I be able to boot into XP-Pro, if the normal boot process points to the active partition on the C drive?

Ok, I was doing a practice lab that involved setting up RAID 1...and it wasn't working.
First, I set up dynamic disks. Then went to computer management and right-clicked the unallocated space, and chose to create a volume.
In the box that pops up, I got "Simple Volume", and the other choices were grayed out...including the choice I needed, which was "Mirrored Volume".
I tried many different things, including formatting simple volumes of equal sizes.
No matter what, I could never get the option to create a Mirrored Volume.
This was a lab computer, ghosted with Win Server 2003, with about 3 GB or so default for the primary partition, of which I can choose whatever I want for unallocated space.1 AnswerSoftware1 decade ago

40 blue, 40 red, 20 green. 60 of these are large. What's the probability of choosing 3 large, blue, without replacement?
I can do this if there aren't large and small. If they are all the same size, the answer is 6.1% chance for 3 blue.
How do you factor in the 60 large?
