The new layout looks great. Much
easier to read, cleaner and more
ICE has effectively blocked VOIP
from Vonage on their ADSL
service. Ports 10,000 Ė 20,000
are closed and these ports are
required for audio transmission.
The workaround is to get a
public IP from ICE and then the
ports are open.
Unfortunately, getting a public
IP from ICE is a read ordeal and
requires a fairly high level of
technical knowledge to
successfully complete the
application for the public IP.
ICE is trying to hold back the
tide of the future by suggesting
legislation that would make VOIP
illegal. It would make much more
sense for ICE to offer VOIP in
connection with itsí various
Internet connection services
(ADSL & RDSI). This positive
approach would provide income to
ICE and not make criminals out
of people using VOIP service.
While I had no input into your
new look I have to say I love it

Don't clutter it up

you have to sell space.
Oh well you don't need my

I always enjoy hearing from
Michael Jean Nystrom-Schut. Up here in Canada during this long winter
his letters have been extremely informative and mostly encouraging. They
have been my link to CR since this year we were financially unable to
go. Keep up the good work.

I feel your article about crimes against visitors to the La Fortuna
area carries important information.
Any culture that deals lackadaisically with this kind of threat
immediately becomes questionable as a tourist destination. While
population-adjusted overall crime in Costa Rica may be one-fifth that of
the US, Costa Ricaís property offenses are five times those of the US.
Thieving strategies specifically oriented toward tourists quickly drive
these percentages right off the scale.
A prime attraction of Costa Rica is its image as a stable neutral
democracy with a relatively high standard of living and a happy,
When tourism brings extraordinary wealth to an area that is relatively
less well endowed, an inevitable few feel compelled to prey upon the
bearers of the wealth. That is understandable.
A faint-hearted response by Fuerza Publica to this threat could signal
the imminent demise of the tourist goose that is just now laying its

I read, contemptuously, from your website, that the matter
pertaining to LEVC will be impeded, while folks hold their
claims against him.
Best realize that this maggot has not communicated with
those who put their life savings in his hands. It is his duty,
his responsibility, to communicate with us.
Enrique is a maggot. He abandoned investors and his
brother. He's not with the bones of those who have
died, violently or in despair, as a result of his intrigue.
It does you no good to have your daily news finally online when half
the day is gone!!!!!
