  1. Simple Ethernet port -> WiFi question

    Yeah, sorry, but a router will work just fine. Yes obviously OP doesn't need all of the firewall/router functions...  It's called an Access Point, and you can put the Fritzbox into Access Point mode and done. And it has the switch built in to it. https://en.avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-7490/knowledge-base/publication/show/3244_Setting-up-the-FRITZ-Box-as-an-IP-client/
  2. niederlassungserlaubnis criminal record

    I honestly don't remember having to answer that question, I've been locked up 6 times!  But never in Germany, so I assume if I did have to answer that, it had to do with the time that I was in Germany on a Niederlassungserlaubnis... I don't know, I never had any issues with my past record, but that is also in America, so it may be different for an EU/UK country...
  3. Let’s play : find Yasmin A’s insta

    Yasmin Adli is indeed from Florida, or were you just confirming your suspicions? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8741665/US-military-employee-faces-ten-years-German-jail-bar-crawl-COVID-19-apologizes.html
  4. Where to buy a Whippet puppy? Or kitten?

    Yeah, sorry, but if you aren't adopting, I'm not gonna help you google. I'm sadly astonished to see that there are still people who don't adopt. I can, however, share with you plenty of news articles on puppy smugglers from east Europe who run puppy mills and take the puppies away from their mom too early, and transported in shitty conditions to people in western Europe.   I mean, you can find a rescue of any breed you want, also puppies... you might have to be patient, but you'll be a much better person for it.   I have adopted 2 purebred rescue chihuahuas, one was used as a "stud" in Hungary to make puppies, and at the age of 7 had apparently fulfilled his purpose and was put in a kill-shelter. He was rescued along with a female who was pregnant with his puppies. She had the puppies once she was in Germany, so someone was able to adopt puppies... I assume that happens from time to time.   Sorry (kinda... not really) to be judgy, but it's something that I feel strongly about.
  5. Relocating to Munich from San Francisco; looking for advice

    Jesus dude. I'm gonna have to go visit Portugal, it sounds sooooo much better than here!   Also- Columbia is not "fine", Columbia is much better than Jeck Volfskin.

    Is it... a certificate of residence?
  7. Dealing with Sound Modified Car and Police & TUV ?

    A lot. Welcome to Germany.  Sorry dude.
  8. Take daily injection to avoid blood clot

    Thanks!
  9. Take daily injection to avoid blood clot

    Well that was the problem with finding this out on Friday afternoon, I have a lot more questions now, but will have to wait til tomorrow morning. But I wasn't in the hospital to begin with, just had gone to a "Praxis" to see an internist.    Are you going to have to take blood thinners for the rest of your life? And what happened after they found your clot(s)? They put you on blood thinners? What do they do, like "whittle" the clot down, or dissolve it... I mean, if it gets smaller, then it can travel more easily to other parts of your body, right?
  10. Take daily injection to avoid blood clot

    Unfortunately, I couldn't find Sarabyrd's old post, but I saw what she wrote here... I ruptured my achilles in June and had a cast on until today. I did the stupid shots every day for 8 weeks, I'm not trying to take any chances, and the needle is really no big deal!   That being said, I told the Dr today that I had some pretty strong pain in the back of my thigh. He sent me immediately to an internal Dr who did an ultrasound on my veins in my leg, and... yep! Thrombosis... I start taking the pills this evening. I'm pretty freaked out and I just hope that I caught it soon enough and that it doesn't make it's way to my lungs, heart or brain. 2 weeks ago, I had noticed some cramping in my calf, but I thought it was just normal pain... now I'm wondering if it had started there and made it's way up to my thigh in the past 2 weeks.   Not really sure why the shots didn't prevent it, maybe I should get my blood checked out more.   I'm 41, by the way.
  11. Best Podcasts for Expats in Germany

    Especially yours, though!
  12. The Best & Worst Things about Berlin

    I love how spammers try to act like they just stumbled upon whatever it is they're trying to get people to click on. I mean, just say- I made a podcast about it!
  13. Working remotely for a German company, sometimes from Italy

    Also, just to add as I specialize in Voice over IP... (or to confirm what you said...)  True, working remotely is working remotely... as long as you have internet access, you should be able to VPN in and work just like you are in the office, or close to it. But, IT can easily see from where you are connecting, so yes, if they want to, they can catch you in like 3 minutes.   You are within your rights to ask HR, though. My contract, for example, does explicitly have my home address as my "work" address. My boss might would be OK with it, as we are pretty laid back... but I could understand why he wouldn't be.   Sorry, but if the boss says no, and HR say no... if anything happens, an accident after work hours, etc... you'll probably have problems... What you should have done is not ask. They probably wouldn't have known.
  14. Slack group for networking with Americans

    I think that was more about July 4th.
