Argh, I missed your birthday. Ah, well. Couldn't send you that big-screen plasma set anyway; too much hassle at Mexican customs.

Yep, I am here permanento. Lots of reasons, none of which I want to delve into publicly. I do see a number of remotes in the outdoor markets; most are fairly old satellite remotes or RCAs, or Sonys. The newest ones at WalMart (yep, big WalMarts in Mexico) are simply the newer ubiquitous RCAs: the silver ones with the pink and blue buttons, hour-glass shaped, that they have been selling for years. Only now they look and feel much cheaper. Home Theater is not a big deal around here, so there is not a lot of requirement for URs. We get satellite or Mexican cable, none of it is 5.1 or HD.

The stereo and TV stores are way behind the times, in Guadalajara, and I've never found anything interesting there. Although, I was able to replace my stolen Canon Digital Rebel at one of the chain camera stores. Sadly, though, it cost 50% more than it would've in the States.
