Osa / hulu / El Angle
- First and most important, The jelly etc plant destroyed in the earthquake, reopened yesterday. I searched for their products during this time. They continued to pay their workers. Most of the machinery was recovered. The workers even worked in the rubble, salvaging , pulling nails,,all according to the news being reported now on Ch. 6.
Any one on the board from Golfito, or Pto. Jemiez?? would like to ask if they recommend, or know of a lawyer. Have to go to the Muni to deal with about a lot we bought some time back, and the SJO lawyers, left us hanging, without finalizing all the paperwork/register etc. And wonder if there are more places to stay in Pto. Jeminez besides, luna y Mar?
Hulu, I downloaded and used it on my last trip to ABQ, worked fine, watched Survivor at the airports on my trip back. Haven't used it here, have dial up. BUT!! last couple of weeks ICE have been installing new wires. They told me it was upgrading for people wanting ADSL (?) high speed internet,,,yea!!. 10 years of Racsa dial up might be coming to a end..

My understanding is that the difficulty with Hulu is that they do not let their content leave the U.S.A. That is also true of much NBC and Comedy Central content. Hence my question in post #91652 about anonymous browsing.
That has receive 2 responses on-group and one off-group. It is difficult for me to believe that there are only 3 CRL members who have found solutions to this problem. Or, maybe I am more of a news junkie than I realized. Hmmm.
- The last time I was on Hulu they said they were working towards an
agreement to show programs to IP's out of the US. There was also a
place to sign up for this when it was ready.
I am addicted to Dancing with the Stars (crazy, I know, but I enjoy
it) It is a shame we can't see it online.. but it you go to
http://www.dailyshow.com you can watch each day's Daily Show even
though you aren't in the US... also Colbert Report.

Scratching my head,
- Yes, true, Hulu does not let their content leave the US... which means that you have to extend your electronic tenacles into the US and open the pipe there and hold up your fake sign that says, "Here I am!" and viola! there is your Hulu.
Lesson 1. Learn to Google....(@ www.google.com) as we are mostly a bunch of dummies here about computer stuff. Search on something like "Hulu workaround" or "Hulu video outside the USA" or "Hulu Raymond.CC" which is to say that the MORE you use Google, the more you learn about how to refine your search terms and once you get the hang of it, it is MUCH easier to Google than to try to get technology info out of CRL... now if you are looking for real wooden clothespins in CR, CRL is probably your best bet, altho Google could probably find them too.

- I was in the middle of watching a show on Hulu and got a message that my IP address is outside the US and was using an anonymous tool for access. Is anybody else getting this?
