Just moving off topic but a neice who has just started college came home with a list of items she needed, her laptop wasn't up to it, she needed windows 10 with word 2016 and a scientific calculator. The school quoted 5000p for the calculator which I've had the same model for about 10 years and you can get for under 800p from Lazada.

Right Gary, these Scientific Calculators can be purchased online, watch out the do sell fake Casio, a lady in the market showed me the difference and she sold both, so I purchased my sons Casio calculator from a school supply store to be safe it was around 1200 pesos plus.

And my son also has to use Windows 10 for his module, all my computers are loaded with Windows 7.

The Sister in law is a local college Professor she had to buy a new laptop with windows 10 cost 45,000 pesos ! She did get a free case As her dell laptop was not up to the job ! She does webinars the college did not help with the cost of the laptop ! She uses our fibre internet which is not a problem.

You know what is really ridiculous? My Wife is a Medtech and I helped her start a full service Clinical Laboratory in Bohol, (Drug Testing, CBC, Urine, Cholesterol, DNA, etc. everything), because there were absolutely NO labs anywhere in our area. After getting everything constructed and organized and buying the very best of the best, top of the line computer system for her Lab...the Philippines Department of Health could not connect us to their system because they...(a government agency), could not service our fast computer with Windows 10...they FORCED US to buy a cheap slow computer with Windows 7 in order to connect to their system!!!

ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY!!!


They require teachers and students to have Windows 10 but their own departments and agencies don't have it or use it!!! At least that's true with the Philippines Department of Health, Region Seven based out of Cebu...

So a little info I can share on the Windows 10 stuff.

Windows 10 is free from Microsoft if you have 7 or later. Just search. Did mine a few months ago.

You need 8Gb of RAM to run Windows 10 as fast as your Windows 7 used to run. Had to upgrade two computers. Lazada had the right RAM for both.

You can buy Microsoft Office 365 for a few hundred peso's from Lazada or shopee, I forget which. It includes 2019 versions of MSWord, Excel, Powerpoint, Visio, ......... You need a fast internet line as you will download like 20Gb of files from the seller.

Good Luck

Cebu citizen reminds me of when we moved to the Philippines , i had to have a xray to put on a cd and give to the immigration in Manila the doctor apologised to me and my wife as the system she was using was windows XP ! and it couldnt read the disk ! Mind you it was back in 2011 but it seems like nothing has changed ! The wifes sister who is a college Professor is doing webinars online and when she connects to the college where she works the webinar crashes because the college network cant cope with the online demand of 10 people at a time ! I know the problem is not at her end as she uses our fibre connection which averages around 50mbs.

That's the sad truth...and many, many Families are going in serious debt over the issues surrounding this pandemic. Even the mandatory use of Face Masks at ALL times is ridiculous and causing financial burdens to people who generally do not have much money to begin with and now with many businesses shut down, money is very scarce and the Government requires that EVERYONE wear a Face Mask at ALL times???

Here in Bohol a farmer was arrested for NOT wearing a Face Mask while he was working in his Rice Field! (there is no one around him at all), the situation caused so much trouble that they let the guy go...but the point is still their crazy policies! And a bicycle rider was also arrested for riding their bicycle out on a deserted Barangay Road early in the morning with no one else in sight!

"Oh, by the way...we know you are hurting financially, so we want to add to your stress and require that you spend even more money while you are unemployed..."

But in reality, what all the experts are saying is "IF" you cannot socially distance yourself, then protect yourself further with the use of an approved Face Mask! What good is a Face Mask if there are no people within your immediate area?

It is basically just adding additional financial burdens to the general population...Face Masks, Face Shields, Computers for your students, internet, etc...lets just beat down the common man a little further so they will never be able to make a better future for themselves!

And don't even get me started on the fact that here in the Philippines, (and probably other countries as well), MOST people are not wearing an approved face mask that will work effectively in stopping this virus because they allow anyone to make home made face masks and sell them on the street for as little as 30 pesos each! How effective are those home made masks if actually tested under laboratory conditions? BUT THAT'S OFF TOPIC...(Sorry...I couldn't help myself)!

It's about TWO things:
1. Stoping droplets from breth from DIRECT reach others. (For that is safe distance enough because they fall to the ground normaly within 2 meters says believeable scienctist. Idiot "specialists" say an arms length.)
2. BUT virus can spread throiugh CONTACT too with such fallen droplets and by people carrying virus tough things. Virus can stay alive outside a body 5 days according to people, who sure know more than I, I have no idea myself how long time. So it's ridicilous to fine a farmer on a field where only he an his family go.BUT make sence to demand facemask where other people come later even if no one else is close for the moment. This and toughing I believe is the reason why countries with facemask demans go on geting new cases. I mean beside when people don't follow the restrictions. This later make even countries with proper use of facemasks and distancing geting new cases, I suppouse.




IF I understand correct
the cheap ones give some protection to OTHERS by stoping droplets from thebreth to get OUT
while the medical ones protect the user too from droplets geting IN.
