It's really cool that you have done work in Latin America! I speak Spanish too and lived in Brazil for a year. My Portuguese is rusty! I've always thought it would be great to take some international depos!
Are you talking about in Sioux Falls? If so, I would recommend Kerry Lange or Pat Beck. They're both excellent. We also have a facebook page for SD reporters. You could check it out. Let's keep in touch!
I'm an official in Sioux Falls and I don't take outside jobs, but as far as freelancers here, most everyone is independent. Kerry Lange has Dakotah Reporting, but I think it's just her and maybe one other reporter. We are an anti-contracting state, so we don't get involved with any of the big contracting firms. Hope this answers your question. Where are you now?
We have a couple of short Outfluence presentations in June. Maybe we can get you to one of those! That would be great fun, Lori. They're in front of business groups, not reporting groups. If not that, let's do dinner. Kay and I will look forward to seeing you!
Lori, I just read you were on TomCAT too! I got that system in '80 and stayed on it until I got Eclipse in 2002! I never did edit in TomCAT. My brother Scot wrote a special program so we could edit in Word! When I finally got Eclipse, my main dix was so small - thanks to the TomCAT universal dix - so I merged the StenEd dix into mine, and I've been cleaning it up ever since. I'm so glad we finally got on Eclipse, and it's nice to read about others who appreciate it as well. Hope you've got plenty of work these days!
And I know a scopist in Langosta, which is a really nice area of Tamarindo.
We're busy putting our 2 kids through college, so our funds are tied up in this falling economy. We need to hold off on developing it. My husband was there 6 months ago, but truthfully, there are so many places I want to see, it's going to be some time before I get there again.
Hi! I must say that as I just went out to fetch the mail, it is extremely gorgeous out today. Lots of sun yet cool. I'm forcing myself to do my taxes, but I really need to at least walk outside within the next hour to get my beautiful nature fix! Hope you're seeing some sun today as well!
one of my favorite areas in the world! Yes, it is so beautiful here, but I do have a very twisty drive to get into San Jose where most of my work is. Sometimes I get so involved on the computer that I forget to turn around and look out my window. It is a beautiful sunny day today. I am smack dab in the redwoods, but I have lots of sun as well on the hill here. It took us six months to find this house as there is so much shade and dampness under these trees. I wanted a house with some sun! Reading your profile, it sounds like you enjoy the outdoors and sun yourself. I used to really enjoy gardening at my previous Bay Area house, but since we moved out here, the deer eat everything so I let the yard go completely natural!
Lori, I'm on Eclipse too, but I'm certainly no expert. It's so nice to see another experienced Eclipse user on this site. Only yesterday I fixed a speaker issue I've been having since forever! It took Brenda Rogers from this site and several posts on the CompuServe forum and a call to Eclipse support to fix it, but I'm happy now. It had to do with using the shortcut Ctrl 1 to change a speaker. Do you know what I mean? If not, that means we need another Eclipse discussion! Enjoy this site - it's so addicting!
